An engine oil leak may develop from the oil pump drive O-ring. This can often be confused with an intake manifold gasket leak. Careful inspection is required to determine the exact cause of the leak. Replacement of the failed 0-ring will commonly correct this concern.

    Thought at first it was the intake end gasket but actually it was the oil pump drive o-ring. Was able to pull up the drive shaft enough to clean and get some ultra copper gasket maker on the bottom of the shoulder of the shaft.
