First u need to clean it. Then put a small bottle of dye for the oil. Drive 100 mi then u take it in and they put a blacklite on it they can show u where its coming from. God bless ty for using 2carpros pl try and donate.

You need to do better than that if you expect us to help you-running or not it leaves a trace-find it and then report back take a pic

You can buy a dye light with glasses to trace the leak down yourself after you do cadiemans suggestions.
