Does it appear to be coming from the front of the motor? I have the same problem and was told that the plug that drains the oil rail could be loose. I removed the bracket that holds the alt. and power steering pump, tightened the plug but it still leaks. Have you gotten any info since you posted this?

Mine is leaking there too. It's a seal in the oil cooler. There is a diagram in the tech files with brief instructions. Does anyone know the level of difficulty in removing the cooler and replacing the seals?
