I think mine is oozing there too. I'm replacing the gasket between the housing and the block when I do my CCV next weekend. I'm going to change that oil hose that's in that area too! I'm changing the CCV and ALL of the rubber hoses that are under the intake manifold because I am taking the manifold off to get to the CCV. I have a slow leak in there somewhere but I WILL get it taken care of when I change all of this stuff.
