When is the last time you had a major Tune-up? If it just started, there may be other problems to address... I'd check for wet areas first, then if dry all over (pan,Valve cover ,etc) consider bumping up your oil. Sometimes or a lot of times, you go from an old car with hard seals and gaskets and you put Synthetic in there you can start a real big leak. How many miles (not years) do you plan on keeping the car?
