it could be a number of things; front main seal, oil pan gasket, power steering lines. Try pressure washing underneath and then drive it a little. That should give you some sort of reference point as to where the oil is coming from

Before doing anything though, make sure you check the oil level anyway.

You wont stall your engine.

You must be new to cars?

Bring it to a friendly shop and ask to have a quick look under and see where the leak could be and ask them.

MUCH easier then having someone on here make guesses... theres TONS of places it might leak. You didn't even list the year, model, engine... nothing...

Oil pan, or main seal probably....two most common.

Did you scrape/hit the underneath on a speedbump, dip, off road, sketchy road, etc?

Thinking higher. If it is coverng the oil pan then it's most likely not the oil pan seal.

Are you sure it's oild? Not P/S fluid like stated above.

I didn't say oil pan seal...I said oil pan.

I've seen oil pans go out, and they will leak.
