sounds like your oil pan gasket or valve cover gasket need to be replaced. you will have to take it to a shop or if you have a friend who know what hes doing with the right tools can do it for you.
Question Answered: Anything I can do BEFORE paying a shop for labor? RE:Headlight issues

check the bulb. usually it has 2 coils spring conductor things inside one for low beam one for high. if both look black or broken then thats your problem. try to put bulb in with out touching the bulb itself with fingers. if only high beams work and you only see one coil burned out you still have to replace the bulb. make sure you put a tad of vaseline or bulb grease to seal the connectors so no water can infiltrate cause that kills bulbs. if bulb looks fine then it most likely will be a wiring problem. you can visually check the wires if they have cuts or looks burnt the the wires will have to be replaced. Also Follow the ground wire from the headlight socket to where it connects to metal ground. Disconnect the connection, sand it with sandpaper. Then apply a dab of dielectric grease (any auto parts store). Then reconnect. That should solve your problem.

<p>The front <a id="ce_5551" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/brake-rotor">brake rotors</a> can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be <span class="ct_selected tooltip">machined</span> or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.</p>
