Leaking Oil?

Yesterday I installed my new Berk's muffler delete, and afterword did some blasts up and down the road. Parked the car, didnt touch it for the rest of the night, came outside today and found this puddle under where my motor would be.

Smelled it, no scent at all, I wasn't sure if it was there before or not. Any ideas?

Did you use any PB blaster or something on bolts? Clean and see if it happens again before getting scared, and monitor oil level.

Yeah it looks a little thin to be oil. Monitor your oil I suppose. On a side note is that a rug in your garage?

WOW.... that rug really ties the garage together.


Back on topic, looks like moisture from when you disconnected the old exhaust. It prolly ran out of the back side of the muffler where it had been collecting.

All I did was replace the muffler though, would that really cause something to leak from the front under the engine bay?
