I have an 2001 first oil leak was the Vacuum pump/power steering pump seal at the crank case it leaked pretty good but I couldn't tell if it was the crank case over flow bottle or the vacuum pump seal so I did the overflow bottle buy pass & Vacuum pump seal problem fixed.
next oil leak was the tappet cover gasket & them I had to re-torque the oil pan bolts these are some the leaks I have had over the years that made a significant loss in oil I now have 301,000 miles on it with no blow-by.
