Take it back and ask the mechanic where it's leaking. They should have noticed it when they checked the gaskets you told them to change.

Tenspeed is right; you paid the mechanic to fix the problem, not just throw parts at it ( paid for by you-of course) until it or you go away. If he is a good mechanic he'll work with you to solve this problem- it's usually not THAT hard to trace an engine oil leak, now that the simple easy answer stuff has been done. Good Luck HTH

Look at the distributor. Any oil on it?
