Buy an inexpensive black light flashlight to trace Cessna oil leaks and seeps. There are several options available on Amazon.

While researching an oil leak, I found this tip in an old AOPA article. Engine oil fluoresces when illuminated with a black light in a dark hangar. There are expensive oil additives to make the oil glow brighter, but I found that the oil shines plenty bright by itself.
