I was at the mall Friday with my buddy vince & it was raining, and I noticed little oil swirls coming out from under my car. Sure enough, when I got home about 2 hours later, there was oil sitting under my car (it'd stopped raining), and there were other various oil spots sitting in places where I'd parked. Turns out it'd been leaking for a couple days, so I parked it for the night (I had to go to prom). Turns out it was down about 3 quarts :eek: We put oil in it, and I drove it last night to a party; lost another quart last night, and i'll probably lose another quart today. Fortunately I was scheduled for the cam shaft sensor, and I bought the 5 quart jug of Mobil 1 so I'll just be keeping the oil topped off until I take it in on Monday morning, but still, it sucks.

That could VERY well be it - there's a small oil spot on the passenger side of the block, right where the head connects to the block. That makes perfect sense. Well, it's going to the dealer on Monday.
