    It could be leaking anywhere I would wash the engine off real good and run the engine to see if you can find the leak a common place to start is your rocker cover gasket

    Have a shop test it using uv sensitive dye in the oil. Mechanic can detect/locate the leak using a black light. No guesswork!

    Check for the leak at the oil pressure sensor also.
