Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 139, 00 miles

High volume of oil leaking from front, base of timing gear cover plate. Can not determine exact location. Can see oil begin to drip at one of the cover plate's mounting bolts. If driven, a lot of oil leaks, blows back and covers the bottom of the car. Any idea where this could be coming from?

Will make you a $$ donation at a later time.
