[V8] major oil leak

I had similar thoughts on mom's car.  Guess what?  It couldn't have been
more simple.  On hers it was the welding point of the "nut" at the bottom of
the oil filter.  Once I changed the oil AND filter, everything stayed much
cleaner and I no longer have to worry about the moving target Exxon Valdez

BTW, regardless of where the oil is leaking from, it will find its way to
the back of the engine --unless you only drive in reverse...
