Oil Leak around oil pan and bottom end!

So I was going to do my own oil change this weekend and I noticed there was oil all around the bottom plastic cover. I thought that the guys from the dealership did not do a good job of cleaning the bottom of the car after they did the last oil change. Hence why I am doing it now. I realize after cleaning everything that there seems to be a small leak around the gasket where the oil pan meets the bottom of the engine on the back side where the drain plug would be. Has anyone else looked to see if they are leaking too? I didnt change the oil and will be taking the car in for repair this week.

just did my second oil change and found the same problem in the same area. the whole back of the oil pan looked like it was leaking. looks to me like they used liquid gasket for the seal. getting it looked at soon by dealer.

Good move not changing the oil after noticing the problem. I see this was posted over a week ago. What was the problem?

Seeing the lower pan leak at the goo.. the goo they use at assembly seems to be some cheap low quality stuff that dont seem to set up firmly.. Why they aint got smarts to use PERMATEX ULTRA RTV in first place is beyond me,, starting to do re-seal on the LAMBDA engines for front cover and oil pan,, 6+yr later, the goo is still sticky,, not cured... wonder why the joints leak ??

The stuff we get in tube (RTV) sporting Hyundai part number feels/smells/sets up like the previous PERMATEX ULTRA that Hyundai was slapping part number tag on PERMATEX package and sending to dealers before change to current stuff in smaller tube.

2012 Sonata with same issue. Seems worse after my last oil change with new oil in there. Used a high dollar Bosch filter and Castrol GTX. Changed oil and thought I had some residual dropping that may have got on top of under craddle plastic shield. Crawed under car and there was a very wet oil pan. Not very happy. Glad I am only leasing this thing for my wife. Eeven my Chevy's don't do this crap till they hit 100K+.

Can you see the area where it is leaking just by removing the access door for the drain plug? I will be changing my oil in the next few weeks and want to check out my engine for leaks.

Are you seeing leaks at the front cover as well? If so what's involved to remove that? Also can you drop the oil pan without having to lift the engine?
