Over the past month or so I`ve noticed an oil leak coming from between the head and the block on the left hand side of the motor. I`m not losing much oil (hasn`t dropped on the dipstick yet), it`s just enough to make a mess. My XE has done this for the last 7 years as has a lot of other X-series sixes. Should I be worried or just live with it?

not sure if its the same problem but my 3.9 is leaking at the rocker cover gasket and thus the oil is dripping onto the block making it look like its from the HG and also the timing cover.

sure its not your rocker cover?

Been keeping an eye on it, it`s not the rocker cover. Definite head leak approx below number 4 and 5 inlet. I`ll try and get the digicam down there to take a picutre tomorrow.
