I noticed an oily spot on that plastic skid plate under the radiator on the drivers side. I removed the plate and cleaned it, but couldn't find any oil residue on the engine or any coolant leak/residue from the radiator. After re-installing everything and checking from the top I did see what looks like oil coming from the passenger side radiator fan. Tried as best I could to get a photo/video.

Any idea if these fan motors are filled with oil for lubrication? Could it just be oil spill residue from last oil change?

I'm unaware of any lubrication for the cooling fans. Are there any visible A/C line leaks in the engine bay?

No leaks from A/C that I can tell. The A/C was just recharged last month because the last time my engine was out, they forgot to charge the A/C and I just discovered it as the temps changed.

I haven't seen anymore residue yet.
