OK heres the deal with my old stock motor I had like 2 oils leaks and a coolant leak. Well after my motor swap I figured that I had gotten rid of my oil leaks and all of my coolant leaks but no!

I have a small oil leak that comes from the bottom of the motor I would say maybe it would be the oil pan or the oil pump but if it was the oil pump then oil would be every where? So I am trying to think that maybe it is the oil pan slowly dripping out because of the 3sgte slanted motor set up? Anyone have the same little leaking problem? or know of any little leaking problems with 3sgte's like oil pans or maybe even a headgasket or something? Thanks

A good way to know exactly where the engine leak is coming from is to have the engine steam cleaned. You can add a tracer dye to the oil and it will appear with a blacklight. Or you can just have it cleaned and keep an eye on it as to where it is coming from.
