In February 2008 my car reached the 100000 mile mark. At the 101000 mark it was due for an oil change so I changed it. Well do to the increase of my job, the oil was getting changed every 2 weeks. But this last oil change I noticed that oil is leaking alot and it has never leaked before. Do you have any suggestions of why?

Make sure the oil pan bolt is tight and not cross-threaded and the filter is not loose or over tightened.

Sometimes when you remove the oil filter, the rubber seal will stay on the oil filter housing, when you put the new filter on this is a leak for sure.

Can you see about where the oil is coming from? Look behind the poer steering pump and under the throttle body. Some time the lower intake gaskets can start leaking.
