Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 5 months ago.

Your best bet would be to have a shop raise it on a lift after putting dye in with the oil, run the engine with full oil for 10 minutes, turn off the motor and use a black light to see where the dye is coming out of.

Thanks, Ron

LOL. Did you really want me to pinpoint your oil leak from here?

Our goal here is to assist you in the repair of your vehicle by
supplying you with well educated information. We may not always
have the exact fix you wanted to hear, but our job is to get you on
the right track, which we always do. We can’t hear, see, smell or
touch your vehicle from where we’re at, so your understanding of
that is greatly appreciated. There are no magical or miraculous
answers, but we do our best to guide you in the right direction.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars and keep this link in case you need me again later on.

until you rate me.
