Question for the OT concrete experts


Several weeks ago, my truck had a busted oil pressure gauge, and oil dripped onto my driveway. Yesterday, it looked like there was fresh oil in the driveway. I always park in the same place, so I thought my truck was leaking again, but I checked carefully and didn't find a leak. Is it possible the warm weather is causing old oil to seep out of the pores in the driveway? TIA

Yeah, I know how to get rid of it, I was just trying to figure out where it's coming from.

I'm a shadetree mechanic, and have never experienced oil coming back up from the driveway after it dried, if its fresh, then its a fresh leak.

What I do, is keep UV dye in my crankcase and tranny when I suspect a leak. Go out with a blacklight and you can trace the leak.

front and rear seals leak often.

I was cleaning my engine the other day and saw a valve cover leak. It happens, even if you are up on maintenance.
