    I can not find the leak on this engine! Its coming from the rite side of the engine somewhere it looks like its coming from the head area but when i pulled the heat shields off it was clean, I had the oil pan gasket & shaft seal replaced 1yr ago and its been fine but now its leaking again but now from a mystery location. I did recheck the block where the two halves meet just to make sure and even started the engine up to check for leaks and nothing! I've also checked the valve covers and no luck has anyone had or know where this thing is leaking from??? The next step i guess will be to take the engine off to pin point the leak. Thanks for any help!

    On mystery leaks I use this product with a blacklite. Clean the area of the leak and add the required amount to the oil run and then inspect with the light. I get the dye from Bennett Auto Parts not sure if Napa carries.
