Oil leak is tough to locate as it is blown all over. the car has 140k on it and runs great but this leak is getting serious to the point of fire. It is not coming from the valve cover. Anyone else experience this?

    Hi, what I would recommend is first take vehicle and get the engine compartment pressure washed, then you can go to a local parts store and ask to buy oil dye that helps determine new from old oil, if that doesn't work I would recommend taking vehicle to shop for an inspection. thanks and good luck.
