Oil Leak, Head gasket can this leak on the drivers side Back of engine ?
Replaced the Intake Manifold recently ant the oil really started to drip it leaked a little before now it really leaking on the drivers side!
Pulled things off to replace the intake manifold gasket and saw the Distributor gasket was crushed on one side replaced new one torqued it to spec and still leaking oil.
I think its from the rear china wall but it was leaking before? oil pan, rear main seal,
Time to add some Dye and see if that helps locate the leak??

Dye was helpful for us. Found it was rear of intake manifold along gasket. Easton was going to replace manifold anyway and we did it with the “right stuff” sealant and that fixed everything.
