    if it's really pouring out,my first guess would be the oil filter coming loose

    it was loose loose i went to check and it was about to fall off tighted back up and my guess threads r shot cuz it got tight then just about fell off again. so just a bad filter for now

    Hopefully it is just the filter that is stripped and that is where the oil is coming from... is the drain plug tight as well?
