    take the cover off and make sure the drain plug and oil filter are on tight and/or on correctly. I would start there.

    Also, if the oil is coming from the oil filter, the rubber seal from the old filter probably did not get removed when the oil was changed.

    true just do your own oil changes they are easy enough and you feel much more secure knowing someone did it right.
