    Was wondering if anybody could help me out with this problem. So originally I had thought the oil pan was leaking because the old one was bent up and had a slight crack fixed it and then this happens not exactly sure if it's the oil pan because when I first start the car nothing leaks at all then after a few minutes on it starts spraying out as seen in the video any ideas?

    Unclear as to where it is leaking from based off the video And dang that thing is spittin oil! Try getting the car up on Jack's to see where it is coming from, since it's so much it shouldn't be hard to identify where it is leaking.

    Does it leak with the car off?

    Clean up the engine bay all parts as best as you can. Put some of the Dye for oil leak and run it for a few minutes. Now using a UV light you can try and pin point the leak location.

    I don't think it's squirting out that hard from pressure. I think that pulley is acting as sort of a catapult for it. You might have to end up removing that pulley to look behind it. That appears where the problem is.

    No when the car is off it doesn't leak at all but I'm going to try the oil dye and see what I can find out with that. Just weird how it doesnt leak at all after a few minutes of being warmed up then sprays it.. buddy of mine says he thinks it could be the front cover gasket but not entirely sure.

    I think it's from pressure. It starts slow and then falls over niagara falls.

    It takes a few seconds to build pressure. It's from under the cover, so I'd remove the cover. Reassemble so you can start the engine, then inspect. You'll see it clear as day.

    Balance shafts deleted?
    If so, did you put a bolt back into the balance shaft tensioner pulley hole? I didn't have one in my car when I got it and that was leaking like no other. Just something to check.

    Looks like a seal for either the crankshaft or the oil pump input shaft seal, more likely the oil pump seal of the two.

    Agree with above that leak likely is emanating behind the timing cover from a seal.

    Your going to end up pulling the timing cover an inspecting.
    If your soaking the timing belt with oil you need to know now as well, I wouldn't run it if wet with oil.
    Leak repair and new t-belt would be my suggestion if the belt got drenched in oil.

    Agreed, wet belt = junk belt.

    It looks like a oil pump or front main seal. Take the crank pulley off and take a pic.
