I have an Oil leak on my 2006 Durango.
I noticed that it seems thicker than what I have seen in the past. Almost the consistency of melted ice cream. (that's the best comparison I could think of). It also has a mix of brown and tan...not just a normal oil color. What could be the issue? And is it safe to drive?
It looks like you have an oil leak... the leak could be coming from where your engine and transmission meet, your oil cooler lines or the engine block itself, if it is cracked or a gasket has failed.
Do not worry it may be something as simple as replacing the gasket.
With a leak of that size I would not drive the vehicle far or fast.
Get it to a mechanic you trust and have them perform a diagnostic to figure out where the leak is coming from. Then you can decide how to proceed.
Hope this helps you out!

What could be causing my car to leak oil?I have a 1998 Honda Accord with over 200,000 miles. It always had a slow oil leak but when I took it for its routine oil change I was told it could not be done because I have a oil leak and there was oil in the bottom of the pan. I was just going to go...
