    Get it up in the air, clean the engine off well. Start the car, see where it's leaking, replace those gaskets. It may not be a gasket, it may be something like a sender or the oil filter adapter.

    Probably the rocker covers or the oil prerssure sender.

    Rebuild for an oil leak? Heck no! Those motors are bulletproof, just a gasket somewhere not doing it's job.
