Hello,
I am trying to isolate/locate an oil leak that is leaving puddles of oil every time I stop. It is on the driver side of the motor around the 5th-6th cylinders. I can see the oil going down the outside wall of the engine, but I can nor see underneath where exactly it is from as the fuel pump and the filter are in the way. Any ideas as to what could be causing this leak? Thanks.

Chances are your pushrod cover is leaking bud. it is a rubber gasket that goes around the pushrod cover plate. bad news is to replace it the injection pump has to be pulled.
