Hello, my name is Bobby. You are actually very lucky if you have not had any oil leaks as of yet. These engines are notorious for valve cover, oil pan, rear main, and oil pressure sender leaks. You can prolong this process by keeping the oil changed and maintaining the PCV system. This will keep there from being too much crankcase pressure in the engine and blowing out the seals. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more help.
