it drips oil from the front driver's side.
I have ramps but the car doesnt seem to leak when its at an angle.
I have cleaned off the engine several times and cannot spot exactly where the leak is. I was hoping it was going to be the sensor but that doesnt look like its leaking. Any tips?
I have been driving the car the same way i normally do (hammered down running to redline and all of that) and in one month and 5 tanks of gas the car has only lost about 1 quart of oil. I keep checking the car and it always has too much oil. But it leaks like crazy!! What is going on?
Ive tried changing the oil again and its not leaking from the oil filter.
Im stumped! I plan on taking it in for service soon if I can't figure it out.
Thanks for the help!
Ryan

btw i run 15/50 mobil1

Mine started leaking from the gasket between the oil filter adapter and teh engine block. Its probably that gasket. Its a mysterious leak until you watch it leak from there the first time.

id rather spend my money on something i can use.....instead of driving like an assclown because its cool. So, at about $60 a fillup times 6....you blew $360 just in gasoline to be cool. awesome priorities there, chief.
