Ok guys I am going to TRY to describe this the best I can, maybe someone can help.

I am noticing in the morning a drop of oil in the front in the middle of the front end. It is about 6-12 inches from the very front lip, and again its pretty much dead center to the car.

I have used a white paper towel every night for a week around the heads/valve covers, and there is NEVER any oil leaking. Also recently I added a BT catch can, and there is NEVER oil around that, on it, or on the hoses. I did notice when I cleaned the air intake, that there is some oil inside the intake tube where the filter meets the intake tube.

Its really annoying me, and I am afraid that if I take it to the dealer they will be like hey you have painted valve covers, intake, phenolic spacers and I am not fixing anything.

What can I look at, where should I start, or do I just take it to the dealer, and they will find something?

But how would it get passed the headers, the cats, then move a good 10" forward to the center of the front of the car?

Oh, and one more thing... The marks were there on the garage floor way before the covers were painted and actually before the catch can too, I just noticed the marks they are very small.

A member on a another forum made a good suggestion to check where the dip stick enters the pan. I had a hell of a time when I was putting the valve covers back on to get the studs to line up with the item that is connected to the dip stick. I am going to start with tha

The underbelly stuff is left on...

The drip is very far forward which is weird, and the color is almost a lil goldish... I think when I had the tranny leak a while ago in my other car it was more red.

I need to get the thing up, and find it, but the prob is its such a small amount. I doubt I will be able to tell?

I am praying when I take the under stuff off I see the filter loose or the dip stick leaking a lil.

Tonight the car smelled hot again like burnt oil, but the last 2 mornings there was no oil on the floor at all.
