This could be a world of pain or just a simple matter of topping the oil level up........ Check the oil level when cold. Make sure it's above the lowest mark. Is the oil light on at idle? does it go out when you increase the rpm?

When mine overheated... the main crank oil seal gave out and there was oil everywhere.... then came the head gasket change and the head skimming work.........
