2001 SSEi oil leak
So, with under 1000 miles on my new car (1000 by me, ~67k total), another problem has developed. The car has suddenly started leaking oil - it was slow at first, but I drove home the other night and thought I smelled burned oil. In a panic (afraid of the L67/oil leak onto exhaust/fire scenario) I pulled over and checked under the hood as best I could, but didn't see any leak from the top of the engine. It does not appear to be coming from anywhere on the upper portion of the engine, but instead at the bottom somewhere. I do believe it'* coming from the front, but I can't get under the car to get a good look and my driveway is on a downward incline so who knows..
the leak seems to have sped up in the past 2 days, I just drove about 15 miles, came home, and see visible drips already. Back to the dealer I go tomorrow, but I was curious if there'* any known/common problems with the 2001 SSEi I should be aware of?
