M103 front oil leak

Mine's also been leaking from the front for quite a while. Replaced 142 and 143 a couple of times (my tech did it) and it still leaks, although less now. The second time they did it, the leaking slowed quite a bit. What I have since found out is that it is also leaking from the head gasket slightly. Most of the leaking was from the camshaft cover (from 142 and 143), but some is from the head gasket at the passenger side front corner of the block. Fun, fun, fun.

A member here has a good quote under their username - "If it's German, it leaks". Seems to be true.
