check oil filter, sometimes gasket from old filter is still on engine and when tou have 2 gaskets, (the old one and new one on new filter) it will hemmorage out oil pretty quick. next time check to see if gasket is on old filter when it is removed. I found that out after $30 worth of Mobil 1 poured out on my driveway.

Testimonial: "Thank you.Spot on. Good to know having been told engine rebuild needed. Thanks again"
Either the filter isn't screwed all way in or there is dirt on the sealing surface that prevents a complete seal - take the filter out and clean everything in sight.

There is an oil seal on the gearbox/transaxle input shaft. If this has failed it will leak oil on to the clutch.It might be able to be replaced by just removing the gearbox again to access the seal. Most likely though is, the gearbox will need to be opened up to replace it.
