Re: Fixing a dripping oil pan
Any leak, regardless of oil, antifreeze, or even freon, should be addressed. With AC, you can always disable it, and leave that part of the system out, but your lubricants and coolant disables the car. I highly recommend that you find the source of the leak and repair it.
If the dripping started after the shop changed your oil, it could be a simple matter of the drain plug or oil filter leaking which should be a relatively simple fix.
