Thanks again for your input. It sounds like theres a hissing sound down under the intake stuff near the firewall, I'm assuming thats the PCV/CCV location. I'll do a tear down and check it out over the weekend. Also I was thinking it could have an RMS leak, although would that leak out onto the bell housing?
It's not a drop, the bottom of the trans where the drain plugs located is covered with oil. I will find out if this is trans fluid or engine oil.
The whole compartment under the engine area is dry.
Also a note that the maf, which I've checked was working correctly, was reading .38 lb/min
Is that low and could be a clue to an unmonitored vacuum leak?
