I check the oil every day and it gets low either sitting or driving it. I put about half a quart in so it doesn't over heat....what needs to be done for temporary job?

    I did some research on a couple products:
    engin oil stop leak

    should I give one of these a try for a temp. fix?

    You can try these but even if you get it to work you will still be best served by getting the repair done. See if you can locate the area of the leak and repost the problem.
