It's probably easier to say what WONT cause an oil leak. It could even be a leak in the transmission, rear differential or CV boot.

Unfortunately I'd suggest you stay away and get a 99RS unless the price is very low.

Have them take it to a shop for a PPI and have the shop tell you exactly where it is.
