2019 RAM 1500 Laramie 4x4 Crew Cab
11,000 miles.

Bought a new-to-me Laramie a few weeks ago with 10,000 miles on it. My wife notified me yesterday that I was making a oil leak spot in the garage! Checked it out when I got home and it's leaking from under the very front of the engine bay - see attached. Planning on taking it to the dealer asap, but wanted to see if anyone else has seen something like this.

It also could simply have been a mess from the last oil change. Maybe someone was in a rush and didn't clean up very well. Pretty hard to pull the filter without getting some oil on the electric power steering unit. I would wipe the area clean and then spray it with brake cleaner, wipe again. Get it all clean. Now keep an eye on it.
