Recently I'm noticed some oil on my garage floor near the engine area. How can I determine where it is coming from? Is there some sort of engine gasket that needs to be replaced. By the way, I have 216,000 miles on the vehicle and loving my Honda Civic

    Put a fresh piece of cardboard under your car's engine compartment mark where your wheels, which side of the car are the oil leaks from and what color is the oil on the floor. Is it front or rear of the engine compartment. Driver's side of the engine compartment is likely to be camshaft oil seal crankshaft oil seal or power steering resiovoir hose. Middle of he car likely to be valve cover crank rear oil seal, passenger side of the car some transmission related leak. Rear of the engine compartment likely to be steering rack related. Front of the engine may be valve cover gasket related.
