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
