Hello. Welcome to Just Answer Please allow me to assist you. When you are speaking of an oil leak, are you seeing oil leaking onto the ground under the vehicle, or are you experiencing oil usage and have to add oil often? Please clarify Thanks
It is possible that there is internal pressure inside the engine that is causing the oil to be forced out past the seals or gaskets. This is caused by a condition known as 'blow by', where the piston rings allow combustion pressure to be pushed into the crankcase/oil pan area. The recommendation here would be to have a compression test performed by your mechanic. If the compression is low, the blow by condition will exist. This would require a new set of piston rings.
