Maybe there's no oil left to leak out? If you're short by more than 3 pints then I don't think there's any registering on the dipstick, so who knows how much oil is in it now? Ordinarily, when the oil is up to the mark it actually runs the timing chain in an oil bath so if the timing casing / sump joints are leaking it will be at its worst when the sump is full. Either way, you cn't run it for long like this and need to seek workshop assistance pronto.. Sorry for the rotten start to your New Year budddy.
