    Hi. On my daughters 97 SC2 DOHC, I had her starter replaced by a shop last
    week and now it is dripping oil from the same approximate location. I
    cannot get under there to see exactly, but could they be related? Do you
    need to remove the oil filter to get to the starter and then maybe it wasn't
    put back on all the way? Thx

    I would definitely check the oil filter. It sits on the passenger side over
    the frame brace. If you have had an oil change recently, it could be excess
    oil dripping, otherwise, best to check the filter itself.
