Engine Mechanical problem
2003 BMW 325 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 119000 miles
About 6 months ago my oil light came on so I added a quart of oil to raise level back up and then had oil changed. No problems til last night when oil light came back on. So I again added a quart of oil. It has been around 4 months since my oil change. I also noticed some oil on my garage floor. Not much but about an area of 2"x2". It idled for a few mins in an open garage so that I could have light putting oil in. I'm worried because I have also seen oil spray on the windshield wiper fluid housing and on the cooling housing. The drip that is under the car is coming from the center of the car in front. I am using a full synthetic 5w30 and live in central ky where it gets pretty cold. Can you lead me in the right direction before I take this car in to be looked at by a mechanic so that I don't seem like a ditzy girl? I only noticed the oil sprays because I was using a flashlight to see if anything looked out of place. Not that I would really know if it was.
Thank you for your help!
