I had to serious oil leaks on my stratus, i would have to put 4 qts every other day just to keep car with car. one was the oil pan was loose and the other they claimed was a head gasket leak, after getting several opinions from several mechanics, one actually got under the car and gave a very detailed overlook under the car and come to find out it was the cam o ring sensor, went straight to autozone purchased the o ring and havent had a oil leak of any kind since then.

leak at cam position sensor dripping all over engine and transmission. leak around engine makes it look like a head gasket leak but had to remove air intake to get a good look and confirmed the cam position sensor leak.
