oil or oil from A/C ???

Hiya Guys,
I have not posted for a while, but I would like to know. I an seeing some
oiling on the right side (passenger side) on the lower body panel. I have looked and looked the only thing I can see under the hood is some oil on top
of the A/C unit. the A/C is fully charged and works great. I am from GA. so we have 78' days in winter so the A/c is used at times. Any ideas would be a big help. Thanks in advance.

Check your valve cover gasket, its a stright down drip from there onto the compressor.
If you still cant find anything clean off the oil build up on the compressor and check it again in another month.
