rear main seal is likely if it is oil.
you need to drop the pan to get at it and it is a 2 peice so it is easy to replace once you can get at it. but it is a PITA to get at.
had to disconnect the exhaust to get enough leeway to drop the pan.
New seal was like $25 and the oil pan gasket is a metal 'lifetime' one unless you jack it up.
Since I had the pan down I had a friend weld a peice of 1/4 to it so I don't smash it up on the trail (it was a little tricky since the pan is pretty thin so make sure to water test it at least before installing it...) it makes the cheapest skid plate available...and is good insurance. btw, if you do that - have the front of the plate turned up like a ramp and don't forget to have the rear of the plate notched for the drain.
