major oil leak

Im getting oil dripping from the oil drain plug and transmission case, its engine oil (feel and smell) but i cant quite tell where its from. It will leave a half dollar sized spot in a 30 minute period on level ground engine off. The oil pan gasket area looks wet, but then again so does everything sorta. I really need to get an idea of what this could be and get it fixed asap. It leaks running, not running, on an incline, or level ground. i just cant avoid it lol.

Also, ive got an IAT high circuit code, and another i cant remember . Any common issues with the IAT? and is there an easy driveway test for it or should i just replace the sensor

OK - first, watch the video's here:

They will show you all the areas prone to leak. You are going to have to clean everything up in order to properly track this down.

Where did you relocate your Intake Air Temperature Sensor when you put in the CFM intake? Is it bouncing around or fixed in the new filter assembly?

havent had the fancy printed green bills to get all those parts yet lol. But from what i read, you can remount your IAT anywhere withing the airflow area of the filter and you should be good. some leave it bouncing around, but idk about leaving sensors like that. They put it there for a reason, and ill trust someone whos paid way more than me to sit there and figure out what sensors to put on the engine
