Gawd damn, this is not good. When I purchased my truck on 7/17/15 A week later I detailed it and also checked and got myself familiar with the engine and drivetrain. You know, getting dirty under the truck and all. I noticed a little black like old oily area and wiped it dry to review later.

Well, today the same spot. Check the pics.

Funnily enough, I also received a survey about my new truck from Ram, they wanted to hear all about it. So I mentioned all the issues with paint and body also as well as this.

I think mine may also be leaking oil as well. I was planning on putting it up on ramps, then THOROUGHLY cleaning the underside and waiting to see if any oil popped up afterwards.

Yeah I found a thread by another member from July. He has same issue.

I think his mechanic said it was cosmomile, which it could be. If you follow that drip and go all the way to the top you'll see a round circular area omin silver. It's got some hard cosmomile on it so it could be that dripping down. I went back out and it didn't smell of engine all at all.

I wouldn't be to worried about. We see that a fair bit when trucks come in for their first oil change. You'll see that little bit but that's it, chances are if you clean it off, you won't see it again.

5.7? This worries me. Guess I'll be keeping a close eye on mine.

Are u guys trucks new? I think mine was cosmomile as it didn't smell of oil. Someone else on another forum had the exact issue and it was cosmomile.

Yes, 5.7L

I'll keep an eye on it either way.
