    can you give us a general area?

    a particular side of the engine maybe?

    We really can't help you based on the info you've already provided

    this may sound really fuckin dumb, but did you check the oil pan plug?
    I'm in no way insulting your intelligence, i'm actually guilty of it myself... lol

        clean everything real good and use uv dye in the oil then look at it w/ a blacklight and it should jump rite out and bite you

            Oil sensor... passenger side of the block bottom / back side...

            umm... could be the timing chain cover where it bolts to the oil pan

            ...


            thats all I can think of at the moment

            have you recently taken your engine apart?

                put cardboard under your car overnight, and if you have any spots, follow them up to get a better idea of the leak area.

                        yeah you have to clean it the area so you can tell where its leaking. if it seems to be up on the intake and leaked down, its your valve cover.
