      2013 Volvo S60 oil leak

      My 2013 s60 is leaking oil in the middle front between the wheels (at least thatís where the small puddle was) I check the oil level abs itís fine and I looked up and some people were saying it would be the turbo oil return line seals do you think thatís what it is? Any input is helpful

      It's probably leaking from a seal of some sort. Maybe pop the hood and take a look?

      The fastest way to see where is coming from would be to remove the pan under the engine and try to trace the oil back to where it's coming from.

      It depends how long it has been leaking. If it has just started don't clean it, you should be able to see where it is wet and hopefully visually follow it back to wherever the leak is.
      If it has been leaking for a while trying cleaning it all up, wait until you see it dropping or from underneath again and immediately get under the car and try to follow it back to the source.
