Oil leak

Question Description

2001 Subaru forester

Started smoking from under the hood this morning, but no smoke at all from exhaust.  Oil is dripping from underneath the car on the passenger side.  Oil light comes on only when I brake.  There is oil on the back windshield. Oil j(something) cover was replaced two weeks ago.  Car is running fine otherwise- no unusual engine noises. Any help would be greatly appreciated!appreciated.

Final Answer

either you have a broken head gasket or your ehaust gasket is broken as well. You may have oil leaking from the oil pan and it's dripping onto the exhaust housing.
