I have a tiny (very tiny) leak coming from the oil pan. I already have a new gasket, and I'm going to take care of it this weekend. That said, there is a lot of residual oil caked on the underside of the engine components as well as some on the exhaust. Every once in a while it smokes from the underside after I drive it. Is it just cooking said oily residue? Or is this a sign of impending doom? Doom.... dooom....DOOOOOOMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!! :headbang:

its just oil burnin off the hot exhaust. I would't worry about it too much, unless it don't smell like burning oil.
