Where is all this oil coming from on my block?
So interesting turn of events today. Finished the HEX install of my REV400 on the front end, moved to the engine to start tear down and noticed I have oil dripping from places I can't fathom how it got there.
As you can see in the pics below it's everywhere. The bottom of my block is filthy and covered in oil due to a failed oil pan gasket, which was fixed last year. However, I have no idea why there is so much oil under and around the fuel rail (middle picture). There is literally a puddle of it in low spots. More oil spread around around the dip stick area on the block.
Looking up from the bottom of the engine at the starter above the oil filter (first picture) I can see a rubber hose dripping oil and oil dripping from one of the manifold nuts securing the TVS to the Blackwatch manifold.
any ideas where it's coming from?
