Can't see where oil is coming from

1 Answer

43,815

It would be coming from the engine somewhere up on top, like the front of the intake most likely or valve cover, pcv system or breather. Unless it is getting blown up from a leaky power steering hose. Just look where there is the most grease, oil, dirt.
