    No way to tell from here where the oil is coming out of you 2004 Chevrolet Express. If the oil is leaking a bad as you say, it should not be to difficult to see where it is coming from. Make sure the crank case if full of oil, and run the engine at idle and see if you can tell where it is coming from. You may need to clean off some of the oil and recheck.

    Your leak could have been at the filter. Please keep an eye on things to make sure there are no other leaks.
