hi paula,

im cam, a licenced tech.

Im sorry you are having this problem.

please do not drive or run your car any further as you will blow the engine.

as for where the oil leak is... the only way to tell this is to have a tech look at it under a hoist. no one will be able to tell where the oil leak is as this will require a set of eyes to inspect it. it could be anything from a real main oil seal to a simple oil filter gasket .

i do not recommend driving it as this could cost you an engine.

i would recommend you tow it to your shop of choice and have it inspected. no one will be able to tell this over the phone or computer, i wish we could.

i would hate for you to loose an engine over a $5 seal and a tow.
