I've recently noticed an oil drip under my 2007. Dripping off of the driver's side of the oil pan. Verified it's not the filter leaking. Can't see much without getting elbows deep pulling parts off. Anybody have any suggestions how I should proceed? Thanks!

My wife has a 2012 Escape, with the same issue. It turned out to be trans fluid coming from the LH half shaft. Go to YouTube and search escape transmission leaks. Good luck

Check the lines to the ATF cooler on the radiator. I found a wet one that I could see from the top of the engine. I gained access and a much better view after I put my 2005 Escape on ramps and removed the plastic under-shield. 

Before you do anything, put some cardboard underneath the car to verify if it is motor oil or red transmission fluid. They smell different.
