Tracking an Oil Leak (Quick Question & Picts)
Hey Guys. I've had a small little leak that progressively got worse lately as I was moving and hauling my trailer a lot. It looked like it was coming from the passenger side of the motor somewhere. I say that because about 6 months ago I did the CCV mode and cleaned up the drivers side of the block pretty well.
Im getting ready for a 10 day road trip and wanted to possibly fix it before. I spent the better part of this evening with a soft small brush, simple green and the garden hose. Lets just say I was filthy after but my engine valley and all around is looking pretty darn good.
Went for a 10 mile drive up the freeway to get pressure in the system and to look for that dang leak. Nothing, drove home, nothing. Looks clean as a whistle and no leak. Watched it with a flashlight while running for 10 min. Nothing. The only place I can see is possible the HPOP line going to the block.
The one with the red arrow. That is correct right? It goes back to the HPOP.
Close up... If you look close you can see a little pool of oil on top of the white sealer "caulk" I guess you call it.
I have the Diesel Lite O Ring kit
, but there are no directions. Which o ring is it, and how in the heck to I change it? Links? Picts? etc?
Sorry if that sounds like a rookie question, but I I just want to make sure I am on the right track.
THANKS in Advance!
