Don't drive it until the oil leak is fixed, you will ruin the engine if you do. Don't even start it unless it has oil in it, continuing to do so may have already damaged the engine. Without knowing where the oil leak is coming from it is hard to tell you much else.

OK I cant leave it there but it's part and it seems like nobody will help me now so how and when how is the best way I can find out where the leak is his phone for some reason I know my car and I feel that its not major like I said it still starts but its just leaking oil as soon as I put it in so is it gone
