2012 Oil Leak

Hey, first time Jeep owner, and within a week of picking it up I noticed an oil leak, and yes I checked through the forum before posting this, right behind the oil pan, there are two rubber grommets in the tranny, they randomly leak oil and when wiped they stop and after driving leak again, the dealership could not find anything and all fluid levels are good. Anyone have an idea where this might be coming from?
Thanks

Congrats on your new Jeep. And, don't feel you have to do a check or search all of the time. If you have a question, ask it. Personally, I don't care for someone getting slammed because someone else thinks they should have searched first. Just sayin. Sounds like it could be engine oil but, did you rule out trans. fluid. Any of the seals can leak, even on a new vehicle. Since it's a dealer issue I would suggest that when you see the leak take it in right away if you can and let the service manager/tech see it. If they don't happen to see it they won't spend the time. Happens alot. Stay on top of it.

what do you mean the dealership couldn't find anything? if there is a leak and you see it and tell them where it is why can they not see it, are they blind, stupid, or what? I hate dealerships (most of them). I guess take pictures, video, oil samples, document each time you visit them, etc.... amazing how they could track you down to another country living under a rock to collect their bill if you didn't pay, but can't see a simple oil leak...

so they can't see the leak or they can't see WHY it is leaking?
