    Never had that problem, but it sounds like if it is engine oil you have a rear main seal bad. Just did one on a hmmwv and it was not too bad. But I also am a mechanic, I did not experience any hissing sounds or loss of power.

    Well then it could be your tranny pump seal, I didnt look if your auto or manual. Either way it is a seal that should be rather easy to drop and replace in a day.
