993 engine oil level


Vehicle Information: Year: 1997; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 27000;

I have owned my car for about 1 year and have checked the engine oil regularly. I do not have any oil leakage, the garage floor is dry. However I checked the level with the engine running and hot and noticed that it was a quart low by using the dip stick. I also went through the routine of warming the engine up and letting it idle for at least two minutes before trying to read the gauge on the dash. This reading was the same as the dip stick. I shut the engine off and added a quart of oil only to find the next day about a quart of oil all over my garage floor. After about a quart came out it stopped and is fine, however, the oil level still reads low on the dip stick. Can you tell me where to start looking for this leak, or did I just over fill it? Never had this problem with any of my other Porsches.
