Probobly a leaky valve cover. Oil tends to pool at the back, then drip down around the bellhousing. Easy enough to replace the seal, though check that the valve cover itself is not warped. Sometimes people think that overtightening the cover will stop a leak, and it just warps the cover.

Could also be the Rear main seal. More work involved, but no special tools or skills. Even less likely is the trans input shaft seal.

Find the leaks and fix them?

Clean the oil off the driveway?

Maybe you should do nothing. It depends on what you're trying to accomplish.

This is sarcasm if it isn't obvious.

I park on a plywood sheet and keep an eye on fluids. I will get to the leaks when I get to them. Seems like a damn that i dont have enuff fingers for.
