My corolla has 110k. I change oil regularly at the auto shop. I had an engine oil leakage after oil change about 5 months ago. Ever since then I have added 7 or 8 quarts of motor oil. The car still runs smoothly. It has a bad ordour sometimes.I want to know how much it will cost to fix the problem.

    The cost will depend on where the oil leak is.It is possible that the person that changed your oil double gasketed the oil filter,stripped the oil drain bolt,or you just have a gasket or seal failure.A thorough inspection will help you in the direction you need to take.
