Is it like one drop in the driveway after being parked all night, or is it pouring oil onto the ground?
Mine likes to "mark its spot" with just a drop or two overnight and has been doing that pretty much since I bought it 4 years ago with no change.

If it is leaking from the bellhousing, then it is most likely a bedplate leak. These usually don't leak much and really aren't worth fixing.

Get under there and clean it so you can tell where its coming from.
