    Is it an oil leak or is the engine burning oil? If it is a leak you may have to wash of the engine or add dye to the oil to identify the source of the leak. To solve the evaporative emission codes set for a leak small or large, look for gasoline stains or a rubber hose that is deteriorated or split. If it is not obvious a "smoke machine" that generates an inert gas pumps smoke into the fuel tank and evap system to identify leaks ans a scan tool with bidirectional controls may be needed to shut solenoids and valves to look for leaks.
