OIL LEAK

2004 Kia Spectra

Engine problem
2004 Kia Spectra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 66000 miles

I was driving my car and I thought I smelled burning rubber. When I stopped to see what the problem might be I noticed a fairly good sized puddle of oil under my car and could see it dripping off the oil pan I believe. What are all the possible reasons that a good ammount of oil would have leaked out in such a short period of time?

Hi there,

Check that the oil filter is tight and the oil pressure switch is not leaking. Check these first and report back if these are ok.
