Re: Lots of Oil leaking from behind starter?
Depending on where the oil is actually coming from. Externally, look up above the starter on the engine and you will see a round sensor for oil pressure. It will occasionally fail and oil will pour out the connection. This happens while the engine is running or turning over.
If it's leaking out the back of the starter your issue would be a rear seal which would have had to fail badly to happen when the engine is turning over.
First issue is 10 minutes work, second one is two days of pulling out the motor.
