is there a crack any fluid leaking out right amount of oil in it

No cracks or fluid leaks. Just had the oil changed a little over a week ago. Oil level is good. When they went to change it I had no oil in it but no leaks on the driveway. I think the new place I went to didn't put the oil cap back on tightly after their first change 3 months ago because my engine was very dirty.


if your car is burning oil every time you drive it will not leave a stain on your driveway but if you use it wile it is out of ooil for to long you will blow your head gasket you can us it just make sur that it has enough oil in it every day before you start it


I worded that wrong strt it let it run for a little while and then check the oil

My husband thinks the sparks are coming from the altenator but I am not experiencing any battery drain. I'm going to go let it run then check the oil, thanks.
