It is -31 here and the wind chill is -50. Yesterday morning when I started my car, which barely started, there was a big blow spot of oil in the snow under the motor then nothing all day. This is it was slight warmly but there was another oil spot but smaller. It I need to take my car to the garage?

Either take it to a garage or have someone look to see what is leaking. It is possible it is something simple as an oil filter leaking or it could be more serious. -31F? My Dodge Ram would never have started.
