It 3sgte or 5sfe?

I'm gonna guess 3sgte
Possibilites in that area:
Cam O-rings, Oil pump gasket, oil pump itself, Valve cover gasket.
Did you use a sealant around the cam brackets behind the Cam gears?

I pulled off the top cover last night and it didnt look like it was leaking from anywhere up top. i shoved a little mirror and light in there and it looked dry for the most part. im gonna tear apart the rest today after work:sosad:

i took off the bottom cover tonight and two of the interior bolts of the water pump ( the peice with the gear) came out completely cause i must have stripped the threads when putting them in. i think i found my leak.
