Hello,

Anytime the engine leaks oil, you will have to inspect and see where is the leak originating from.
Typically the oil can leak from the oil pan gasket, oil seal, valve cover gaskets etc.

Have a look at this guide that goes thru all the possible leaks:

You do have to keep in mind that if the engine is running low on oil, it could damage the internals. So keep an eye on the oil level till you get the leak fixed.

I have attached the replacement instructions for the two most common leaks, the oil pan gasket and the valve cover gasket.

Please let me know of any questions.
Thank you.
