How low was the oil? Have you tried putting more oil in and seeing if it improves? Where is it leaking from?

It's hard to overfill. It would spill out before you put the plug back in. Maybe you spilled some on top of the engine??

Probably the idler pulley, then. The blower usually won't fail if it has oil. Well, at least it's an easy fix!

so where does the oil come up to on the dipstick?
which filter are you using?
using a stock filter in a 96+ riv you should put in 4.5qts of oil.
if you are using the upgraded fitler (pf52) like most of us, you will need 5qts of oil.
is the car parked on pavement? can you verify it is leaking motor oil and not something else?
