well i replaced my oil pan gasket the other day and all seemed good untill yesterday.
i had to follow one of my friends with his M3 well in the prosses of trying to keep up with him i noted that i had sprung a leak. at first it was a drip every 10-15 secs and i checked all fluids which where fine then drove it home ( i just drove normal @75 mph cruise set). well today at the exhaust shop i noticed that the front of the pan gasket had a tear. so i drove it over to my shop and cleaned the front of the engine, trimed the torn gasket and sealed the pan with an epoxy. then let it sit for 3 hours and i noticed that the pan was no longer leaking but there was still oil leaking. i drove it home and noticed that there was oil from under the power steering resivior and all over the front part of the passanger engine bay. it is a healthy leak

what is on the passanger side of the engine bay that would put oil all over like that?
any other ideas?

CPS, exhaust cam seal, oil cooler hoses... that I know of. There may be other stuff there too, those are just the ones I've dealt with so far.

the oil cooler hose is what i thought of first. the cams seals was a hunch till i saw the oil up that high.


the other strange thing is that ever since i bought the car the exhaust mani is always wet around the 1 and 2nd cylender. that i was thinking was cps just leaking a little.
