Major Oil Leak! Help Please! ASAP!

I have a major oil leak. I thought it was the main seal so i changed it out but changing the seal did not do the trick. What do you guys think? Thanks

This is in the wrong section (parts for sale) you want this to be in the regular 944 forum where more people can help you.

Where is the leak? Is it in the front of the engine? There is a possibility that you oil pump drive-gear could be worn and oil leaks from there.

From where is this happening? How is your oil pump drive sleeve doing?

Go to your local auto parts store and purchase a tiny bottle of this special dye in which you pour in your oil and run till warm! Then you go get a blacklight bulb at the hardware store or wherever you can and use it in your shop light in low light and go around under your car to find the spot! It shows up nice and bright right were the fresh oil is coming out very easy to find out 100% for sure!

If I had to guess where it was coming out not knowing nothing about your car or miles I would say its these 3 areas:

Oil pan gasket on exhaust header side in rear corner
Rear main seal which you have to remove clutch and flywheel in order to get too
Rear balance shaft cover O-rings

Check your oil filter housing. (take the tray off the bottom) so you can really see from what area its coming from.
make sure the oil filter is tight
cooler hoses, maybe.

This thread is hilarious. How vague can you get? For all we know, the oil leak could be coming from transmission main shaft seal

It's like asking "my engine makes a loud noise, what do you guys think?"
