HelloCustomer what size engine do you have in the vehicle? How many miles are on it? How much oil does it leak?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
it is a 4 cylinder with 141000 miles checked oil last week this week it is empty
Expert:  Fixitman replied 8 years ago.
Okay. Typically when the oil leaks from the front of the engine this fast it is due to a bad oil pump seal. You need to have the front timing cover removed to check for this. If there is oil on the belt also then it will need to be replaced.
