We power washed the engine and then drove it for a little while and it looks like its coming from the back cylinder area. Does this sound like it could be correct? Or does anyone have any other suggestions to offer up? Thanks...

    Is it something that i can do, or do I need to bring it to a shop and have done. Mind you my auto mechanics backround is that of "not a whole hell of alot". However I am a fast learner so if i see it done i'm pretty sure i can do it. What do ya think? Also thank you for your help.
