Has anyone heard of any oil leaks in the 5.7? I have removed all belly pans and can't seem to find where it is coming from. I checked the obvious, filter and drain plug. It appears to be near the front on the engine. The size of the drip is equivalent to a pea size. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

Had the exact same issue. Couple drops each night and about half quart low after I checked. I have extended warranty so I brought it in. It was the oil pan gasket in the right front corner. Would only leak while running. Tech told me it took them a while to find it. They removed cover pans, cleaned everything and let the car run up on the rack before they found it. He said they have had this issue on trucks alot. Anyway, they installed new gasket, all is good.

I hit a very bad pot hole at night,and for some reason it tore the rubber
ring on the oil cap(where you put oil in the engine),and oil leaked out of
the oil cap when running and run down the engine to the ground.I got a
new oil cap and it cured my oil leak.
