Default A new leak.

I can't figure out what's happening here, but here's all I know.

I fixed my oil return line from the turbo, which doesn't leak at all anymore. Keep in mind, that I did put in a LOT of oil. Now the leak looks like it's dripping from the oil pan. Could the fix of the return line have changed pressures in the oil pan to cause a leak to occur there? Or is it possible I put too much oil in? I have a friend who had nearly the same leak I do and he said he put too much oil in and had it leaking like crazy. I literally drip every 6 - 12 inches when pulling out of the driveway, sometimes even more than that.

Too much oil?
Oil pan leak?
Any other suggestions?

Thanks yall.

I dont see how putting in too much oil would make your car leak. If there is too much, take some out, it can be just as bad having too much as not enough. Try to get under there and really wipe things down good to see where the leak is coming from for sure instead of guessing at it.

Clean it all off, Spray it down with carb clean to be able to REALLY see where its coming from.

If your leak is that fast then getting under there and finding it won't be a problem.
There's no way you "blew" an oil pan gasket. Unless the oil pan wasn't tightened down right.
Either a line or fitting is leaking.

x2, sounds like a line is leaking down and looking like a gasket.. i had the same issue with my integra, except with coolant. there was a cut on the underside of the rubber hose, and it was right next to the block so i thought i blew a headgasket and leaking shit everywhere

ummm because i did. i'm no fuckin n00b here c'mon.

The dipstick reads above the full line. That's why I thought it could be leaking out of somewhere it wouldn't normally leak. Too much oil.

x2 Brake cleaner ftw! I used it on my belt as a quick fix with my old Taurus

youre no noob... yet you are the one who added too much oil, and continued to drive around like that and are wondering why you have mysterious new leaks...

The oil being a little high wont hurt anything. I would do as was already suggested. Clean it off and then look again. If it comes from the timing cover then its either balance shaft, or front main. If it comes from the Bell housing then its a rear main or input shaft. Oil pan is obvious if it comes straight down the middle of the back of the block then it could be the head gasket. Axle seals are fairly obvious. Cam seals amd valve cover are fairly obvious as well. The balance shaft seals on the f series motors tend to walk out so that might be a good place to check.

Would this possibly cause the car to leak? I'm going to take it in this weekend if I can't figure it out...

No dude. You could put 10 quarts of oil in and it wouldn't run....but it wouldn't leak either. A leak is a leak regardless.

Quit guessin', get under the car, finding the leak just takes your eyes and a paper towel...it's not hard!

It's even possible you or someone else left your old oil filter ring on there and put on a new filter over it.
But guesses are worth jack until you LOOK.

Usually this results in a massive oil puddle underneath the car, but it is possible. Drain plug is very common as well, but I figured that was a given. That should've been the first thing that was checked. Seeing as how your car is boosted I'm guessing you don't have a factory "a" pipe with a section of flex pipe in it. If you do that might be the problem. The pipe is directly below the oil filter and if whoever did the oil change didn't clean it up it would drip from there for a while.

This could be the problem. The previous owner was a retard...

I just took it to my guy yesterday. I jacked it up and found out I had a broken axel boot. I figured if I'm getting that fixed, I might as well save myself the hassel of finding an oil leak in the cold. Just as a side note, I'd definitely do it myself it were warm. lol

I would check the oil line from the oil pressure sensor since thats where you most likely got your oil feed from. check the fitting maybe its loose or just not sealed properly. check all your pan bolts like everyone else said. this is kind of a problem if you dont take care of especially with a turbo you are going to fuck up your car badly... stop being lazy and get under the car. cold weather or not it wouldnt stop me from saving my car.
