Massive Oil leak, but from where?
I was driving a fairly length drive as far as my drives do, about 350km and about 2 hours into the drive at 100km I notice my oil pressure light on. I pull over and look under the hood and I have oil everywhere and what not. I check my dipstick and its off the stick. I put about 3 liters of oil in and got the level up to a suitable driving level and fired up the engine and looked for oil comming out. I couldn't so I checked and the oil pressure light was off so I decided to risk it and try to get to a service station down the road, (25km away) at about 20km the oil pressure light started flickering and came on steady but I made it with no ill will to the engine as far as I can tell. I bought and put in another 3 liters and fired up the engine, looked under the hood and the oil was pouring out from under the exhaust manifold above the starter.
250 bucks and 4 hours later I am at my shop ready to start work.
I don't know whats there, what could go from no noticeable leak to pouring out like a garden hose after only 20km but I can't see in there cause I cannot see in there even with a work light and inspection mirror. I plan to remove the radiator so I can see right in there and fire it up albeit for a few seconds to find the leak.
Anyone have any ideas what it could be?
