    So me and my dad are switching the old egr-intake to a new 1-ton intake, and we see theres a pool of oil underneath the intake, what could be causing it. My dads thought is the seal on the timing cover ass. where the injection pump connects to the timing chain. Another other thoughts on what could be causing it, Also the whole front of the engine is covered in the oil, gonna power wash it to see if it's a valve cover.

    Also was putting a new timing chain on and you should see the harmonic balancer, the rubber was pretty beat up dipping in and cracking out in a couple spots, pretty damn happy about catching that, and the timing chain had about 3/4 of play in it too, guessing it had about 80k+ miles on.

    I am guessing it's the oil sender or the gasket is gone under the vacuum pump ??? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Between the IP and the timing cover is just a paper gasket, you should have got a new one with the intake set...I did.

    Could be valve covers too, which are a pain in the butt unless you're already swapping in a new injector pump.
