My older car has low miles and is leaking oil why?

While it's great to have low miles on your car, it can also be an problem if it hasn't been driven enough. The oil helps to lubricate the seals and gaskets without the lubrication the seals can become hard and shrink causing the oil leak. If you have a vehicle that isn't your daily driver or one that just sits around as a back up vehicle it's best practices to drive it once a week if possible. It gets all the fluids moving and can prevent your seals and gaskets from drying up and shrinking.
