Hi, my name is Jay

You will need to look directly above the center of the oil on the ground and try to see if it is coming from the oil drain plug or the oil filter seal? These would be the two most common places to leak. The cold can shrink an oil filter seal and allow it to leak if it was not tightened enough when oil was changed.

Make sure to check oil level to see if engine is low and add oil before starting again. You can turn the oil filter tighter if it is leaking from it to stop the leak if it is there.
