Looks like I have an oil leak coming from the oil pan near the AC Compressor. I see some stuff above the on there but I don't think it's coming from the cradle.

Is this a common leak?

The drain line back into the block is a potential spot

Alright. I'll pull my injector cover and get after it with the inspection camera

This is quite the leak. I'm going to pull the intake and see what I see. Inspection camera inconclusive, but leans heavily toward it being the PCV

Here is one I was able to snap just now. There are drips on the AC compressor and all over the accessory bracket. Probably has to be the PCV system.

Looks highly suspect as PVC

Which elbow hose would an 05 most likely take? I'm guessing its the expensive one because thats my luck LOL. Did the URO parts get any better in this case?

Based on location of the oil residue I'm guessing it where the box plugs into the block, which is hidden behind the box.

I'm going to pull the intake and see what it actually looks like under there instead of just ordering parts. Gonna try to do this one the cheap.

Yeah - its quite odd that it seems to be a high quantity of brand new oil. Is that common for a PCV leak?

When it goes it will blow oil out. Probably one of the lines is cracked or the coupler between the block and box are leaking, but either way your idea of pulling the manifold to track it down sounds best.

Well

I got the scope under there. I can't see anything coming from the breather box. I can't see the bottom though. I"m letting it run a bit to see whats going on down there. It might be the oil pan or cradle leaking...

The system passes the glove test just fine.
