Default oil leak under 07 maxima

Hi,
I've just done an oil&filter change yesterday. My oil pan seems like it has leak some where. But i cannot find out whether it is my oil pan or the hose near the drain plug (see picture)

yep, I put a paper towel under the car and i think it drop like 20 drops/a day.
if it is the oil pan gasket, then i think i will replace the lower oil pan as well.
that would be a big replacement. poor me.

Not really oil pan is a lite job. Just remember to get a new oil pan gasket with some black rtv silicone.. Should be good to go after that..

I got around my oil cooler today.
It is all wet around it. I think I should clean the whole thing and try to find out where is the leak spot. T_T

This is the new video:

I just had the exact problem. It was the oil cooler gaskets. My pics looked like yours to a T. Found the problem while changing oil.

To be safe I had them put an oil pan gasket while they were there.

i have a wet condition under there to, but my crank pulley is wet as well, it's pretty messy at the moment everywhere but i'm pretty sure i have a front crank seal problem.
cleaning it is a good idea to try first.
