My daughter's 300D still puts a small oil puddle underneath when parked.
When I got the car the air cleaner mounts were broken and the air cleaner to manifold seal was bad. I replaced the mounts, cleaned everything up, and finally figured out how to put the seal in the bottom of the air cleaner correctly. I replaced the hose from the top of the valve cover to the cannister, that hose no longer leaks. The o-ring on the nipple at the bottom of the canister is in good shape. The engine is strong, has shown no signs of oil usage or blow by.
It still continues to puddle. HELP ! ! ! !
