Oil is leaking from the bottom of the car, looks like its around the oil filter but not sure, its leaking like a stream when driving.

That needs addressed ASAP.

Check to make sure the oil filter is tight and only has one gasket on it.

Check to see if the oil sending unit is leaking.

Check to make sure it is MOTOR OIL and not transmission fluid, brake fluid or PS fluid.

Let me know what you find. Also, let me know if the oil has been changed recently or any work has been done.

ITS DEFINATELY MOTOR OIL.

NO WORK HAS BEEN DONE, ALL HAS BEEN FINE, I WAS DRIVING AND A LIGHT CAME ON, LUCKLY I WAS VERY CLOSE TO HOME, CHECKED THE TRANSMISSION FLUID, ALL OK, CHECKED THE ANTIFREEZE ALL GOOD, CHECKED THE OIL AND IT WAS PRETTY MUCH DRY, I FILLED IT UP, WITH APPROX 2-3 LITRES, LET IT SIT, STARTED THE CAR, DROVE IT OUT OF THE DRIVE WAY AND IT STARTED STREAMING, I HAD SYNTHETIC OIL IN IT ORIGINALLY AND FILLED IT WAS REGULAR AS THE GAS STATION DIDN T HAVE ANY SYNTHETIC OIL WHEN I WENT TO GET SOME.

Adding conventional oil to the synthetic won't hurt anything. Have you checked the things I mentioned?
