That is bad. Try to determine where the oil is coming from. It could be a bad rear main seal or perhaps a hole in the block or oil pan.


Sounds like it may have put a connecting rod out of the block or oil pan. Did it make noises just before the oil started coming out?


No it didn’t make any noises & it’s not leaking bad the car runs fine
