Default 2014 Accord Oil Leak

My Accord has been leaking oil on my front grill. I can't figure out where it's coming from. Any suggestions would be appreciated


It looks like the fan is spraying it.

best thing to do is to have someone rev it while you watch, or you can add some uv dye to the oil and go for a drive then park it in the dark and put on the glasses and use the light to find the source

the only thing I can think of it being is power steering fluid since the cooler normally sits in front of the fans

The car has electric power steering; so, it won't be power steering fluid.

A photo of part of the grill area can't really show us much of anything...

You may want to bring into a shop and have them inspect it.

I think the 2014 Accord has electronic steering, doesn't that mean there is no fluid?

It was already stated above.

Does the A/C work? Might be the A/C compressor oil leaking along with refrigerant from a leaky condenser.

I read that happens but my A/C seems fine. For now I cleaned it up and I am looking at it every day. Thanks for the advice.
