Default Oil leaks on 5.7 hemi

I changed my oil about a month and a half ago and filled it up to level. I parked my truck yesterday around 7, got in it tonight about 6 and when i got back to my garage i found a oil leak about 4 inches wide. Wondering where it could come from or if there is a common oil leak on the dodges. It's an 03 dodge 2500 5.7 hemi 4x4.

Hopefully its just a sending unit or something but you are going to have to get under there and do some better investigation work for someone to help you out better.

You must be new to vehicles and engines altogether. ALL engines no matter who makes then will leak eventually. The best thing you can do now is get some engine cleaner or degreaser and spray it on the leak and engine to clean it and then look to see where the leak is coming from. Oil leaks can be very small but spread oil around a lot so it is important to clean it and then look for the leak.
