Default Please Help!

i have 2004 pt. cruiser. recently it has had a really really bad oil leak. I dont know anything about cars i can put in gas, oil, water, and windshield wiper fluid thats the extent of my knowledge. My car has 60,000 miles on it about a week ago its started leaking oil really bad. i went through 3 quarts of oil in 20 miles. it doesnt leak when it sits only when its going. There is oil all over the engine and under the car but when i dont see anything. There is no hole in my oil pan. I dont know what to do. If there is anyone that can at least tell something that would be great. im totally lost here.

3 Quarts in 20 miles? Sounds like you blew an oil line or did the oil filter come loose from the last time it was changed. When was the last time it was touched, just before the leak started ?

As much as you know about cars, get it to the nearest garage and find the leak. It shouldn't be too hard for someone to find it for you.
