Hella oil leak! IDKWTS

I have an epic oil leak on the driver side in proxcemity to oil filter. The filter is tight and seems to be coming from above it. I've lost around gal. of oil in the last month or so. I'm worried to drive it, due to fear of catastrophic failure. I'm down for any advise. Thanks dudes

mine does this, not a gallon but it's a combo of two things, my oil cooler and my turbo pedistal. and the rear corner of my VC

My leak isn't higher than the exhast manifold. The oil goes from mid engine to past the bellhousing and all over the driveway.

Thanks for the link bro. It looks to be a big enough painus in the anus to be a good time.

its not too bad really, just take your time, keep everything clean. Clean only the outside of the cooler, dont try to clean the inside. You'll regret that one if you do lol. and be sure to get all the gasket off the block and cooler ends, you'll regret that one too if you dont
