Where is the leak coming from? Is it on the front cover of the engine, oil pan, valve cover-you need to be specific so we can help you

Where you empty the oil under engine there is a nut you screw on and its leaking slowly from there-do I need a washer as well as the nut-maybe the thread is worn or they didnt screw on properly

Inspect the thread on the oil pan if it stripped-if not use a copper washer apply a lil of JB weld around the bolt and tighten to specs and see what happens-don't work run another bigger size bolt thru it and hope it works this time
