ok i think i traced down my oil leak, i was goofin around today and saw a puddle on the top of the block, under the intake on the passenger side.

i can get a picture if you guys need a referance point, but what could be leaking, it seems as if its seeping out, and running downt he engine and then onto the exhaust, causing that dam groase smell.

Probably leaking between the head and the cam case.

oil blowby could be making its way past the oil fill tube mounting gasket, as that is what it appeared to look like on a soob i had serviced today

i eventually got frustrated and got a mysterious case of the f*** its. you'll never find it all. I just let her burn. Too much of a pain in my rump roast to fix.
if it helps you at all, imagine that it's fog instead of smoke.
