Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you
Have you checked the drain plug and oil filter gasket to see if it is leaking there?
How much oil would you say is coming out and how long since you have changed the oil?
I don't understand, I 'm sorry, you are saying that you put more oil in than has leaked out?
That is very strange. How are you measuring the oil that has come out? Is it showing over-full on the dipstick?
Man, that is a weird one to be sure! What weight oil did you use in the truck?
And you actually see this oil dripping on the ground?
and this leak only started after you have changed the oil?
That definitely could have, but you should see some oil dripping from the filter. I think that the very most likely thing is that the drain plug gasket has either fallen off or is faulty. This is easily fixed by a 10 cent gasket. I would clean it off and try to let the truck start dripping while you watch to verify this, but I bet that is what you are looking at.
that kind of thing happens at my shop all the time. We use brake cleaner to clean off the suspected area and watch it while it runs to see if it leaks. Another trick is to add some uv dye to the oil and drive it for a bit and that can help locate a leak as well.
