Oil leak onto garage floor either coming from oil pan gasket or oil filter not sure wich one

Clean the filter and pan with a spray cleaner, run engine for a few miutes.
recheck oil leak.
Probably is rear main seal leaking, very common trouble.
If not leaking much, keep drip pan under car to keep floor clean and drive on.
Most cars do leak after they age a little. The black line in the middle of the road is oil leaking from cars. Very common.

I installed a new fuser oil cartridge in my Docucolor 12. After about a week I found the oil was low again and we had only made a few hundred copies. When we pulled the unit away from the wall I found...

u need a new oil tank. this is the yellowy/brown plastic bit where the oil sits in. if not you might have a blockage in your oil system in the fuser itself causing it to spill out. if the oil is on the trays its more than likely the oil tank

Where is the fuser area in the Canon D860?

The Fuser is the heated section of the machine, the last process before the copy leaves the main portion of the machine.
You should find two rollers, upper and lower, if these rollers are unable to clean themselves excess toner will build up on the rollers and get passed on to copies later on. you can clean these rollers with some alcohol or similar solution. Be sure the machine has been turned off for awhile as these rollers are extremely hot when at operating temp.
The second question would be, why is the system not cleaning itself. Sometimes if the copier has been on a large run with a lot of dark areas it can overwhelm the cleaning unit, but if this is not the case you will need to determine what is wrong. The Fuser is usually cleaned by a cleaning roller, cleaning web or cleaning wick.
These cleaners are usually white when new, brown to black when well used.
They are usually oiled with a silicone oil which prevents the toner from sticking to the Fuser rollers, so the cleaner may not look too dirty but may be out of oil.
This may be a part you can change or you may have to call in a Tech.
Hope this helps.

Toner leaks from cartridge while in machine.

Tech re-furbished the drum and the problem went away. Apparently, not all drums you buy are the same quality. Some completely replace the drum material, while others simply clean the surface which is not the correct process. I guess you get what you pay for.

Error Code SC570 for copier Aficio 1224C

It could be covering the sensor. Clean the fuser oil sensor off and see if it goes away.

Docucolor 12 spills fuser oil

Pretty much all you can do is rebuild the fuser, either the meterins blade or wick are work out.
