I have a high mileage 95 STS.

it had a small oil leak, where it would leave a drip or 2 on the pavement, but only used maybe a quart in 1,500 miles.

I had the alternator and battery replaced a few days ago, today i go to drive it and i have 2 puddles (larger than a silver dollar) under the car right after it starts.

after 2 minutes, it's a good pancake size. I topped it off at this time.

Still leaking, I shut it off and decided to take the other car to work.

It's leaking from the front passenger corner of the car.

Could something have been done wrong during the alternator change to cause this leak?

Is it going to cost more money than it's worth to fix this?

Did i just waste money on a new charging system for a car on it's last legs?

Thanks for the help!

Any chance the radiator was removed to gain room to replace the alternator? If so, it is possible the oil cooler line retaining clip at the radiator may be broken and not retaining the oil cooler line properly.

A replacement clip can be purchased at any auto parts store if that is the problem.
