    Oil leak 2.8 V6

    I have a significant amount of oil coming out of the top left side of the engine, somewhere in behind the distributor. It runs down the back of the block near where the speed sender is on the transmission.Took the distributor out thinking seal there, but that is not the problem. Anyone know what is back there that could be the culprit? steve

    I had an oil leak from distributor o-rings on two of my 2.8s. Sounds exactly like what you have.

    I have had the same issue. It is from the distributor o-ring. When you took the distributor out, the ring might look good. If it is flat at all, it will leak under the pressure. This is one of the few simple and cheap fixes out there.
