Suggestion. Refill the Engine Oil to the proper level. Remove top Engine Cover...2 10mm acorn nuts. GET READY to observe where the oil leaks by having someone else sit in the vehicle and start her up. Shut her off as soon as you locate the leak. The pro's at the repair garage would use a "Smoke Machine" to locate the leak.

Smoke machine? Sounds like YOU'VE been using the "smoke machine" too much... A smoke machine is used to find vacuum leaks and other gaseous-type leaks/breeches. Oil leaks are found only through observation; in extreme cases (where there's a lot of oil obscuring the pinpointing of source) ultraviolet dye is added to the crank-case, then signs of fluorescence are searched for with a black-light.
