Developing a darn oil leak!

It seems to be coating that front part of the frame.. the huge i-beam looking thing that U's down in the front part of the motor. I've been noticing it spotting up my driveway since this morning after I get back from a drive. Any clues? All I can see is my front U-beam coated and it looks like its all forming the drip in the center of it. I'm not terribly happy about this....

Sounds like the front crossmember... check the oil cooler on the driver side.

Ok I'll check that out. Any other ideas? Is that a common leak-point?

check behind the crank pulley/balancer. if it is grimy and oily chances are it is your front seal or the o ring that seals the oil pump to the front cover. about $40 in parts and 4 hours to do.
