Fill it with oil and a put a new filter on, clean it off with some degreeser. Drive a little bit and try to get a better idea where the oil is coming from. Currently you just asked people on the internet to find a needle with a description of a hay stack.


From your description, it sounds like a bad gasket unless you have a hole somewhere in your oil pan. In that case you would have to replace your oil pan, not overly difficult or expensive in most cases.
