Whats the best way to find an oil leak..?

I know its not coming from the drain plug washer already, doesnt really look like its coming from the pan either..

do u have a guess of where its coming from? if so spray entire motor down with engine cleaner then let dry, start it up and look for it.

oil leaks are not that hard to find on k series.

most likely somewhere around timing chain cover or something..

its coming from the right side of the motor, timing chain meets block and pan....

Usually oil leaks are pretty visible. I know at work i use an oil leak dye when i have a real problem leak or its leaking alot and its hard to see where its coming from because oil is all over the place. You could probably get the dye at your local auto parts store. Pour the dye in, let it run for some time then inspect with a black light.

This method works wonders if you have a dirty motor.
