    well this where you need to get down dirty and take a look underneath. If it coming out of the flywheel cover at the rear of the engine that most likely the rear main seal. The oil line are fairly visible to see for leaks.

    if it has a remote oil filter check the driver side behind the wheel just under the exhaust manifold.the oil cooler line may have a bad seal. if not there then the rear seal may be bad and in most cases there 1 peice seals which means u have to disconnect the trans and drop the iol pan disconnect the rods and pull the crank shaft thats the best bet. or try lucas oil stabalizer is swells up the seals to slow down and sometimes stop the leaks
