Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question. It can but not likely. If the oil leaks on something hot like the exhaust it is possible but still rare and unlikely to happen. Always a good idea to fix any leaks to prevent the chance or try and keep them at a minimum
