Default Re: Oil Leak? Not oil pan, not valve cover, not front oil seal.

Thanks for all the replies. It is definitely not ATF and not leaking around the EGR. Oil consumption is about 1/2 qt every 1000 miles so no real complaints there. I already did a cleaning of the area in question and the leak is in the area above the oil pan and below the valve cover gasket on the backside of the engine closer to the timing chain area so I tend to agree with Bill_Murray and johnny95sl2 that it is the head gasket. So again like Bill_Murray unless it gets a lot worse I guess I will live with it. Those annoying oil drops on the driveway don't look too cool though.
