I like unprofessional, it's entertaining. Kelly, come on read the question. To the OP, take it back or take it elsewhere, oil leaks are not that difficult to diagnose.

Persistant oil leaks are a pain but usually A SIMPLE FIX. If it is a ptrssure leak, it will leak pretty bad. pressure meaning with engine running. Two seals, front crank and rear main. proximity to front and rear bearings. Pan gasket and valve cover gaskets. IfYour oil leak is mostly after driving awhile and it is dripping when parked, Then it would be a possibility your crank case pressure builds up. This would be due to a positive crankcase ventilation valve On vehicles since the 60's. It draws the crankcase fumes into the intake to cut emmision. Usually found at top of engine with a vacuum hose attached to it. Remove it and shake it. If it rattles it is ok if not, it is plugged up with sludge. Change it out with a new one, inexpensive fix. Hope this helped.You won't need to pay anyone to change it,a neighbor can help you locate it on the engine. recommend cleaning engine after repair to verify rsuccess
