    I xhanged the oil in my super mini z the other day. Somehow I forgot to replace the dipstick. Oil blew out the dipstick hole, and engine light came on. now, oil is leaking from engine. engine seems to run fine. Is the leak most likely the head gaskets? Thank you,

    I wouldn't think its the head gaskets.
    What model is your Super Mini? which engine? Kawasaki? Kohler or Honda?

    Ok, it could be coming from a few places, rally need to get it cleaned up and locate the leak, check all seals and gasket areas.
