    I have had my Diesel since 2006 and just recently it developed a oil leal that looks like it could be coming from the upper area of the engine block. I have read there is aluminum between the engine block and the oil pan. The oil pan seems to be leaking also but that is minor. Any feed back would be appreciated,

    You will need to pressure wash it until it is clean and raise it up so you can see the where you think it is leaking from. You will have to run it until it leaks to pinpoint where it is coming from. Normally when you drive it the fan and air flow can push the leaking fluid away from the leak making it difficult to determine where it is coming from. Are there any oil pressure sending units near where you think it is leaking? PM me if I can answer any of your questions.

    Seymore82; There is an addative you can add to your oil and check with a black lite.We use it all the time. It comes in yellow and green and you can't miss it
