Keep a close eye on your oil level. You losing any?

Usually (well, everytime) I pull the oil filter off, it drips down the passenger side of the block. I clean it as good as I can, but...

Otherwise, you could have a: leaky oil pan gasket. Easiest to check the torque on the bolts. Or possibly a leaky rear main seal.

So, clean it all up and keep checking for a leak and keep an eye on your oil level. It will become apparent as leaks never seem to "get better"...
