check to make sure the oil filter is tight.

Check down through the intake manifold. On the back of the block is the oil pressure sending unit. Those tend to fail and leak oil all over the place. Especially right onto the cat. You can also check from under the car. Best way to spot one is when it is up on a lift as you get the best view of it. Basically just look and try and find out where it is coming from...

What Nick said^^^, could be caused by high crank case pressure are you on PVC #6, was it overfilled at last oil change. Also cold have been bad pur of the oil but it was 2 weeks so prolly not

And trans output seals...

They can throw oil up on the engine and it runs down there

When I had the oil on the cat problem it was because of the oil pressure sensor leaking.

had the same problem with mine, oil pressure switch fixed it. the part us under $5.00, installing it is a pain. I would imagine a dealer would charge around $100 for the job.

I think the part is actually $18. Its a very simple fix, just unscrew the old one and put the new in place. The only tricky part is figuring out how to get a wrench on it, and getting your hands to it.

Edit: Just checked eeuro and BAM! $18.

Guess I have a good memory for parts and the likes.

Sucks to see fluid under your car, doesn't it.

Hey, so I just realized we live in the same place and drive the same car (well, different color).

Race ya

There is a lot up around the exhaqust tunnel there. On my car the only time I got that was when the trans was leaking and getting oil on the drive shafts which threw it up thataway( but then again I guess it could be getting on the shafts from the sender as well)

yeah, it's the C-900 ones that are sub $5.00. the 9-5 ones have a fancy connectors on them rather than a single pin terminal.

I had this issue on my 9-3. It was due to the oil filter not being tight enough. Sinched her-up and wiped everything down. It's all right as rain. It sounds like your issue is intake manifold as suggested. If oil is coming from there at speed w/ the turbulance of everything that could explain the oil in other places.

On our 9-3 the presure sensor was simply not tight. There was oil everywhere, on the drive shafts, in the exhaust tunnel, everywhere.

So no, oil won't drip up, but it will fling up and get blown up.

Im not sure what its malfunction is but its going to the shop. Just hit 80,000 on it and i think it needs new bushings so it couldnt hurt to take it in.
