Car oil leak?

In order to fix an oil leak you must know where the leak is coming from, to do this you must have the oil and dirt removed from the engine, then the best thing to do is have a dye put in the oil that glows under a black light, drive the car for 10 miles or so and look all over the engine for the source(s) of the oil leak.
Once you located the area of leak,you can continue further is stopping the oil leak.
Basic areas from where most of time oil leak is noticed is from valve cover gasket,or its faulty PCV valve.PCV means Positive Crankcase Ventilation. This valve is is inserted in the valve cover itself, and the purpose of this valve is to act as a vent for excess pressure that accumulates inside the engine and valve cover areas.
When the PCV valve is clogged or blocked by dirt or gunk,then oil will not pass and due to this oil pressure increases and at last ,due to this pressure the valve gasket blows out and oil starts leaking.

This details will help you.
Thanks.
