I'm getting really frustrated with this one...
Appeared the rear manifold was getting oily and was smoking after a short drive. Ordered valve cover and intake gaskets, replaced them. Back of the head was dry as a bone.
Cleaned everything with carb cleaner until it was squeeky clean underneath. front, sides etc. Dumped in a little bottle of the fluorescent dye into the crankcase and drove about 1 mile at low speed, pulled into the driveway. shut it off and grabbed the UV flashlight. Smelled oil burning already. Crawl under and the rt front corner of the oil pan was the wettest, but there was enough that it had already made a run to the back and was wet all the way to the oil drain plug. Is the area I circled a broken bolt?

V8's are known to leak from the upper/lower oil pans as well. You'd have to remove and reseal them (silicone gasket). A shop would charge about 8 hrs labor for this but it's pretty easy to do - provided you can support the engine after removing the subframe.

I am thinking of doing this work on my car 2007 xc90 v8. Will it be complicated to put the subframe back in if i remove it. VIDA is little confusing on instructions do you have any instructions which could be of help.

Thanks
