I have just noticed a have a small oil leak coming from the front my vehicle. It's only about the size of a quarter, but am concerned regardless. Upon further investigating, I noticed I had 4 other same size stains on my driveway.

Is this something I could try fixing on my own by tightening engine bolts, filter, etc ?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

Oil Leak

You did not state whether it is a V8 or V6. If it is a V8, the oil filter housing is located in the front, lower, slightly right of center of the engine. I would look there first. There is a O-ring on the filter can that should be replaced at each oil change as well as the drain plug aluminum gasket. I would not be tightening bolts on the engine.
