just cleaned my driveway/parking spot at my house.. the drips are coming from my lower oil pan/bolts, just a few drips here and there.. do i need to order a lower pan gasket, and wait 5-7 shipping days and the shipping charge that will cost more than the gasket itself. suggestions...

Toss a handfull of kitty litter under the car. Or park over a piece of cardboard.

Perhaps tightening the offending bolts?

Like Eric says, I would try tightening the bolts first.

Is the gasket above the bolts "wet"?

I had 2 bolts that were leaking, gasket was dry, and used this stuff.

5 coats (took 10 minutes including the wait time in between each coat), waited 1 hour to dry and no more oil leak from the bolts.

Dries clear.

Less than $10 and you can do it tomorrow with plenty left over.

I'm happy.

Could it be coming from the front of the motor and blowing back ? Maybe a front pulley seal ?
