oil leak question?

Ok, have recently started towing a 6x12 enclosed trailor and had some things done in preperation, 1 trans service: drop pan, new trans filter and trans oil. 2 fix rear pinion seal leak. The shop that did this work told me I had an oil leak at the cylinder head on the passenger side. Now, I've heard some of the techs on here say that "if it's not hitting the ground than don't worry."
Well, no oil has stained my driveway but this does concern me. I have been told that I'm almost a quart low at my oil changes. 3000 to 4000 miles. I just assumed I was burning some oil. Should I be concerned? I have 58,000.00 miles on it now and it runs fine.

You have 58,000 miles on it. It is a 2006, Take it to the dealer it is under warranty. You may need new head bolts as yours may have been stretched. They also will have to replace the head gaskets as well.

when you pull your trailer do you baby it or do you get on it maybe going up hills or anything like that........ and you most likely dont need to worry the much its prolly just a loose clamp on a hose possibly the result of expanding and contracting from more boost then its regularly sees this could come from pulling a trailer up hill and getting your boost up there....... and then theres always your typical bad o-ring or seal which isnt much..... im no mechanic though just talkin through past experiences...... you shouldnt worry though
