finally decided to figure out my oil leak. Bought an oil pan gasket, oil filter adapter gasket. The front plastic splash gaurd is always wet and dripping on the passenger side and the oil pan bolt heads are always filled with oil. There was always an oil drip on the oil filter. Dropped oil, removed front plastic splash gaurd, and couldn't see the ground wire/oil dipstick area and the ground wire loom was wet. Started thinking maybe the dipstick tube into the block was the problem. Sprayed carb cleaner liberaly to the area, massaged with my hand in a latex glove, sprayed some more. FInally got the whole area clean. Then I wiped down the whole oil pan and bolt heads. Put on filter and filled with oil, took for drive around the block.
Back in the garage, put a piece of cardboard under motor and went in the house. Came back out 10 min later and was a drip on the drivers side oil pan area. Dipstick tube area is dry. Going to put it up on ramps again to take a closer look.
I don't know where a rear main seal leak is supposed to show up, don't want to put an oil pan gasket on if it won't make a difference.
notice the ground wire area, that was one glob of gunk before. Couldn't even see the sensor
