Anyway, I will have them look at it this week and report back the result. Thanks for the replies!

Dye? Really? I mean, that is an option for locating an UNKNOWN source of a leak, but, really, if the tech read the TSB 11-12-13, and verified that the substance is oil (dark brown/black like your photo, not honey brown/redish which is simply undercoating), its obvious where the oil leak is coming from.... good luck.
