The best way to locate the oil leak, if you can't see where it is coming from is to park the car overnight , and put a large piece of cardboard under the engine, so where the oil leak is, it will drop onto the cardboard, then the next day, look under the car, and see where the oil is on the cardborad, the leak should be in the area of where it is on the cardboard. also, the leaks could be anything from the oil pan gasket, oil sending unit, valve covers, intake manifold gasket. or the rear main seal. hope that this information was very helpful to you.

I use a uv dye added to the oil. It will show you exactly where the oil is coming out of the engine. You can buy a kit that contains a uv flashlight and special glasses so you don't hurt eyes and can see the dye glowing. Next purchase the correct dye. All of this is not that expensive and more precise than a piece of cardboard. Simply add the dye to the engine and run vehicle let set overnight look in the morning with the light and the leak will glow.
