    oil leak

    I have a small oil leak that seems to coming from the back of the engine. It seems to be more on the passenger side. What do you guys think? Rear seal or possibly the oil sensor? I have also noticed my oil pressure is a little higher than normal sometimes.

    I have the same. The bolt heads on the back of the pan get wet, but not enough to actually drip on the floor yet. It is so hard to see back there... but I presume the rear main may be weeping just a bit on ours. I had hoped that the oil pressure sender had a small leak, but it seems dry up top. If all goes well, the transmission will be coming out in a while for an upgrade and I'll let you know what I find.

    mines doing the same, only from the front of the motor, not sure if the higher oil pressure is a cause or a symptom....

    I don't seem to have any issue with oil pressure. Forgot to mention that.
