I have a persistent, and according to my mechanic, difficult to isolate oil leak coming from my engine. He thinks that it might be coming from the dipstick tube, which apparently has some sort of O-ring at the bottom. He is running the UV dye in the car today to hopefully identify the leak. He does not believe that it is coming from either the head, the valve cover, or the oil pan gasket. Do these engines have a propensity to leak, and if so, is there a common source? Also, is there any truth to the rumour that German cars do tend to leak oil more than a Japanese car? Thanks.
