Noticed a bit of exhaust
in my engine
room, upon investigation found its source to be on the port side of the engine
, right in the middle but originating towards the bottom of the engine. I have very limited access to the engine but there does not appear to be any manifolds or headers to be leaking on that side of the motor
. Is it possible that the oil
pan itself needs a new gasket
and is leaking out exhaust
? I dont see any oil
in the bilge
but it would be hard to detect if it were just a small amount. oil level seems normal so I dont think its leaking. oil pressure stays high consistently.
I had a guy change the oil right before this leak appeared. is it possible it was done incorrectly? a loose fitting somewhere ?
