That wet spot running down to the LEFT of the drain plug ????
You might check the pan bolts, but don't over tighten them.
Not sure about the oil pan gaskets on these MOPAR engines... Some have a rubber seal around the front and rear of the pan, not sure if MOPAR is like that...
If it continues, you could change the pan seal, that should be pretty easy on the Jeep, it's easy to get at.
Maybe if you dry it off real good and squirt some cleaner in there , wipe it down and watch it real close you will find out for sure where it's coming from.... Looks like there is a separate casting between the oil pan and block. Could be it's leaking between the two parts...
I have a 07 JKU-X, It uses oil but I cannot find any leaks anywhere, does not drip at all..
Interesting, maybe I'll get under mine tomorrow and see what it looks like...
Good luck ! "BH"
