Re: engine oil leaking
I would not climb under the car without saftey glasses on. Oil does not mix well with your eyes. It is a good idea to clean off the under side of the motor. Place a clean piece of cardboard on the ground and park with the engine over top of it to get a better idea of where the leak is coming from. Chances are it might be a transmission pan gasket if coming from the drivers side of the car.

Is your oil level low? If your oil pressure is low as indicated by the light, you will do serious damage to your engine if you continue to drive without repairing the fault. The fault could run the gamut from a loose oil pickup, to a bda oil pump to bad bearings.
First thing i would do is degrease the whole engine, with oil leaks there hard to detect when the engine is very dirty, after you clean the engine and its free of all oil take it for a short drive when you get back home inspect the whole engine on the driver side and see where the fresh oil is coming from remember oil leaks downward and blows rearward when your driving so a leak on the valve cover in the front of the engine could eventually look like an oil pan leak after its been leaking for awhile if you still cant detect where the oil is coming from go to an autoparts store and ask them for detection dye, its a dye that you add to you engine oil and its used to detect leaks use a black light and then you can be very sure where the oil is coming from.
For some reason neons require Champion brand plugs,like the one's from the factory. Also check the plug wires. If it's also got a nasty oil leak on the driver's side the cam sensor is probablt the culprit,causing the misfire.
The 1995-1999 Neons are notorious for having faulty head gaskets. This sounds like what you're experiencing. There is coolant leaking internally somewhere, and burning in the engine.
By any chance, is the smoke coming from the back or side of the driver's side of the engine? This seems to be the trouble spot.
If you've been driving with a bad head gasket seal for a while, there's a chance you could have warped or even cracked the head. I would recommend taking it in because this is a pretty major repair... unless you feel like taking the engine apart yourself.
