Re: oil leak!!!!!

Check the big (2" diameter with a 1/2" square-drive recess) High Pressure Oil Rail End Plug on the end of the head. Also check the turbo pedestal for leakage around it. You can also check the engine valley for oil, although oil leaks there generally will drain down the back of the motor on the passenger side. Cheers!
