SOURCE: bad oil leak 98 dodge neon it looks like from

There is an opening on the top of your timing cover sealed off with a rubber plug. Remove the plug to gain sightful access to inside your timing. But first I suggest you clean your engine first ot all grease and build up caused by your leak. In diong so, you will have a clearer idea of where the leak is actually coming from. I just rebuilt a 2000 neon, so if you need some info on anything , I have your info.

My timing cover is busted or cracked just about all the way around. could the oil will blowing out from there

There should not be oil inside the timing cover. But if you have a front crankshaft main seal or another oil seal under the cover, it could leak and come out the cover.
You may have to take the timing cover off to investigate. But first use rags and wipe off the front of the engine. Get all the oil off so you can spot the new oil and where it is leaking from. Clean it off then run the car for awhile, maybe 15 or 20 minutes, and look for new oil and where it is coming from.

1996 Toyota Celica. Oil warning light came on two weeks ago. Topped up immediately with 2L. Have driven the car minimally since. Today the warning light came on again. A kind neighbour checked it and...

Double check coolant to make sure you don't have oil floating on top. It's either an exterior leak, which would mean head gasket or valve cover gasket or it's an internal leak which would also mean head gasket. It it was burning that much oil in that a time, it would run poorly and you'd most likely get a check engine light.
