Some I’ve had this slow oil leak. At first I though it was the oil cooler. Nope. The sensor pictured with the red clip is the coolant temp sensor. Oil leak appears to be coming from the area directly above; possibly the black piece above. Any insight would be appreciated.

Yeah, I think it’s the rear corner of the valve cover. Ordered the gaskets but gonna try torquing the accessible bolts down first.

Have almost the same problem. What helped you to solve this? And what oil viscosity do you use?

Cleaned the engine a couple times to rule out the rear main. Thought for sure it was the oil cooler and went as far as committing to change it. Pulled the intake manifolds off to find it bone dry. Kept showing up dripping from coolant temp sensor. Valve cover is the only thing directly above.
