Hi there,

Thank you for the donation.

You will have to wash down the engine and check that the oil level is correct, with an oil leak that bad, you should be able to run the engine and check where the fresh leak is, check around the rocker covers, you should be able to locate the leak easily, re post if you still have problems or require information on repairs when you locate this leak.

I have the same problem except I just did a top end rebuild. My rod bent so im replaceing the motor today and let you know where its coming from because I looked and beside where the dip stick connects into the block theres nothing I can see with the motor in the car that could be doing it.I will let you know more when I find out.

I took the motor out. Its from the dip-stick whole. Theres a small rubber washer that came out and the seal is not tight and oil came out. Mine was because I had the top end rebuilt after a basket went and the rollers clogged and the pump built up so much that it blew the seal out. Try taking the covers off and see if you get oil all the way to the top of the rockers first. But its a simple rubber seal for the end of the dip-stick tube. So simeple and it cost me $200 and alot of in the sun hours to pull 2 motors and swap. Good luck.
