However, the last two weeks or so, I've noticed a small quarter size drip appearing on the driveway. Any possible reasons why a new leak would start appearing all of a sudden?
Even when being very careful changing the oil some oil will get on the side of the engine block and on the subframe. Over time this will eventually land on the ground under the car. I wouldn't worry about a "quarter size" spot.

No rain here.:roll:

If the spot is just "quarter size" and hasn't gotten bigger in two weeks I simply felt that it was not worth worrying about. One drop of motor oil on a paved surface could make a "quarter size" spot. A teaspoon of oil would look like a flood.

Now, to further evaluate-

Wongm2- Has the spot dried or is it wet?

well theres multiple spots...but since thursday ive noticed about 3 new spots, no bigger than about a quarter size each.
Ah-ha! Multiple spots are indeed worrisome. They show that the leak is continuing. My original assumption that it was just one spot was incorrect which of course makes my suggestion above void. I now suggest you have it checked out.
