    Everytime I park the car they are 4 spots of oil forming under the engine on my driveway, any idea of what it could be?

    In order of expense:

    Loose oil filter (free)
    Overused, old crush washer for oil drain plug (>$1 USD)
    Valve cover gasket(s)
    Seals

    Find the leak, post a pic if you have to, and see about getting it fixed.

    I am having the same issue with my 04' WRX, I believe it may be my oil pan gasket. I plan on replacing it on my next oil change. Hopefully it fixes it. I would go under the car and try to find the source of the drip or at least see where it may be coming from, a trail of oil somewhere on the undercarriage or parts.

    Another spot to check is around and beneath the axle seals. This would appear to be coming from the engine at first glance.
