Rockerbox or h/g, underneath exhaust.
At least those are the most likely.
Is it using a lot of oil?

Try checking the back of the head, it might be running down there and across to the manifold or down the bellhousing.....

Re: Still Leaking Oil On Cat, Still cant tell where its coming from!

its definately not brake fluid leaking out of the master cylinder onto the cat??

im not sure where the breather tube is for the auto (im assuming its auto?) but could it be coming out of that??

Brake fluid would make white smoke. Try giving the engine, etc a good degrease so you can trace the leak.

Re: Still Leaking Oil On Cat, Still cant tell where its coming from!

dont know how it can get frm the pressure sender to the exhaust...

It will be either of a few things

Rear of rocker cover
Rear of Head Gasket
Rear Main seal
Auto gearbox pump

the bottom 3 are expensive fixes.

Re: Still Leaking Oil On Cat, Still cant tell where its coming from!

Windage can make oil get there.. As you are driving...Pluss the oil drops down from wind to rearward parts. Leaves you thinking that its where its coming from..But it can be further forward from where it appears to be leaking....The "frustrating" part is rear seals can be wet or very slight leak [which is o/k] and something else can make it "seem" worse..apita..

Re: Still Leaking Oil On Cat, Still cant tell where its coming from!

if the cats under the tranny then u would be leaking tranny fluid from either wher the filler tube connects to the tranny due to a bad seal, or from a crack in the line.

where is the cat placed!
