2007 X-5 4.8i Severe Oil Leak

Asked by Nov 25, 2016 at 12:42 PM about the 2007 BMW X5 4.8i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2007 X-5 4.8 is parked in my driveway out of
oil. I parked it there last night with the low oil light
on, then this morning when I started it I had a light
come on telling me not to drive it due to low oil
pressure. I added 2 quarts of oil and it came out
the bottom somewhere as quick as I was adding it.  
When engine is started it came out faster, and it
came out even faster when revving the engine. The
oil drain plug is in, it's dry around the filter, so I'm
looking for any idea's on what it could be... It's not
leaking, it's dumping and pouring out as quick as
the oil is being added. Any idea's?

Maybe the rear main seal blew out but the only way to know for sure is to crawl under it and find the leak.
