    Depending on what is causing the oil leaks it may be expensive to fix particularly if the engine has excess blow by. Google search "car parts wrecking yards" you will get a list of individual wrecking yards. Some of the sites allow you to enter in the details of the type model and year of car you are looking for and then distributes your parts request to thousands of wrecking yards around the US so you don't have to make loads of calls to individual wrecking yards.
