My truck has an oil leak like under where the air intake is closer to the fire wall. I just put in all new gaskets from the head gasket and up. It will leak oil after the engine is off. It will not leak any when it is running. Do you have any idea where it could be leaking oil from?

Do you
have the same problem?

Good evening,

I suggest getting an oil dye and put it in the oil. Let the engine run and use a bright LED light and see if you can see the source. It will show the leak in yellow.
