I cleaned the plastic oil pan undershield...

yesterday to keep an eye on what might be leaking. Since I've bought the car, I've fixed 2 minor coolant leaks and am looking at replacing 2 power steering return lines soon (both are rotting).

I took out the pan and used a plastic putty knife to literally scrape the accumlutated gunk off the pan. Now, I'll know a fresh leak as opposed to guessing what or if something is leaking.

While underneath the engine, I saw what appeared to be a leaking freeze plug (slight seepage). If indeed this is the cause of a leak, how would I go about repairing it? Thanks!
