    It could be the beginnings of a rear main bearing seal leak. A word from experience - it is a pain in the beehind to change. Which side is it on? I could be the oil cooler liners or at best case, a valve cover gasket.

    I have some leak to in the back the best way to start is to clean the motor and look at least everyday to pin point where the leak come from, it could be also the gasket for the vacuum pump, 45 cents, but a pain to remove /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
