oil leak

Good morning my fello 10 owners. I've had the truck for a week now and am starting to notice oil dripping from the passenger side front fender. The cooler lines are braided and appear to be in good condition. Any suggestions as to where else the oil could possibly be leaking from? The truck sits to low to get a good look and my mechanic is booked until the end of the week. Oil filter is a napa brand but it is clean. There is a rip in the steering boot but this leak doesn't appear to be atf fluid. Thanks in advance.

Either cooler lines, (some tried making their own that didn't work out so great) or your cooler itself. Rid the Napa filter and only run mopar and Mobil 1 15/50.

I think your right. I took her for a spin then rechecked by turning the wheel so I could get a clear visual of the cooler lines and fittings. It appears to leak from the fitting going to the block, small drip. I just dropped some cash on brakes, it will be a week or two before I can order new lines. I'll drive the daytona until I can order the parts.

Mopar filter 90? I think that's what I use on the tona.
