    Get a mirrior and take a look back there and see if you can pinpoint the leak.

    Just be careful reaching back there -- it's not too difficult to snap the sender off. Here's a pic of the sender I just swiped off the net:

    100% correct, mine was cracked and leaking, and was replaced when I had the cam sensor unit go out on me.

    Hey guys you where right, once I removed the intake found oil all over beack there, thats the good news now for the bad news, got everything back together, test drive about 3-4 miles each way to gas station no problem everything looked And sounded good. When I went to leave for work a few hours later started up and heard a loud knocking sound, sounds like a rod knock. What the F**K. Any ideas?

    Did you tighten all your intake bolts??? Did you forget to connect all your sensors and wires to the BACK of the intake?? Check there.....
