2012 5.0 Little Oil Leak

Well today i was going to detail my engine bay and noticed a little oil coming from the vct sensor gasket or engine camshaft seal "whatever its called" i cant figure out why it happened. I ordered a new seal from ford for $5. Hope its a easy fix.

Another possibility is when you serviced with oil some could have spilled and collected there.

It's a 1 minute seal change either way.

When was the last time you detailed your engine bay? Looks like that wire loom and the plastic has been dirty for awhile. I recommend using simple green to pre soak. It will take all that built up dirty and grime off

Yeah its extremely hard for me to keep it clean. I do pipe-line Electrical work and the job-sites are nothing but fine dirt everywhere that always gets under the hood
