there could be a transmission line or power steering line that runs near or over the mount that may be leaking or the motor or tranny depending on witch side the mount is on may be leaking onto the mount also a more closer inspection would be in need.
If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck
yes i would highly recommend you support the engine to prevent the engine from lowering to much. you will also need to support it so you can install the new mount. use a jack with a block of wood-as wood is softer. it is perfectly safe to support the engine with the jack and wood under the oil pan.
This is also a warning light for the brake system. You may need to replace the brake pads. The light will come one when the brake fluid level goes below a preset limit. It could also mean the brake fluid is just low add more brake fluid to "MAX" line on the side of the brake master cylinder mounted at the firewall in the engine compartment. The reason it turns on and off is due to the fluid sloshing up and down over the low level sensor. Good luck to you
