Hello.

As mentioned above- behind the cam cover- between the engine and the fire wall- there is an O ring aroud one of the sensors- it breaks and leaks under pressure.

the annoying thing is that oil drips down- so u think that the problem is in the block area- when in fact the leak is from the upper part of the engine.

so -

wait for the sporty to cool down and thes simply insert your hand and touch the rear of the engine- behind the cams - when the O ring goes it usually leaks a ton of oil-so u will be able to feel and see the oil.

p"s - check your oil level - if u drive like that for a week you can loose a lot of oil - leading to damage to the cams.
