Sounds like you could have a bad freeze out plug to me. These are sometimes difficult to see leaking in the rear due to the transmission etc. If you have a video camera with a display screen and zoom these can sometimes be used to inspect tight spaces. Good Luck!

get under and look, and be careful for the hot stuff and the moving stuff because it ain't coming out the way you say unless the engine is running. If you can't find the leak by looking then buy some glasses, take to a shop,or mount a 1000 gal tank on the roof and refill it when it gets low.

My answer has already been posted. My comment is: Why when folks ask for help, do the members of this site give a bunch of wise cracks?
