Exclamation added archoil oil, now have oil leak

So I did an oil change on Sat, and added 16 oz of Archoil 9100 to fresh T6. I have always ran T6 in this truck since new. I noticed this morning, that I now have a large spot of oil on the floor of my garage. It is about this size of 4 dollar bills lined up on the floor. I have not driven the truck since Sunday, its not uncommon for the truck to sit for a month at a time in the summer. I had a bed plate leak fixed a couple years back, and have not had any oil leaks since then. Any suggestions?

Drain plug tight and not cross threaded? Can you see where the leak is coming from?

Would have to be something you did durIng the oil change. Arcoil isn't going to cause an oil leaked.

I can see the oil drip down the starter and down onto the transmission lines, then down onto the floor... I didnt think the Archoil would cause it, but its just odd that it started right after a oil change??

2006 with around 75000 miles on it. I monitor everything I can SGII, pyro, fuel pressure, trans temp. I dont think the Archoil has anything to do with it, just cant figure out what caused this oil leak all of a sudden.

Did you lubricate the new O ring before you installed the cap. If not, the cap could not be seated all the way.
