    Is this a fluid leak ?

    Hello Valuable members
    Today i just happen to notice a kind of oil leak under my car. Last week i did my last free service and today i just thought of checking under the car and happen to notice some color shade that looks like a oil leak.
    Has anyone encountered anything like this. Please advice.

    Looks like oil residue from the oil change, and it was wiped off. you only have 2 of 3 bolts holding the panel on, maybe it fell into the techs drainpan

    If that were mine, I would pull that cover and check!

    Using a flashlight you should be able to look down from the top at the pan from several angles and determine what is going on...
