This part is leaking oil on my 2004 v8. The picture is looking at the back side of the driver's side cylinder head. I looked through the parts diagrams and can't find the gasket. Anyone know what it is called, what is does, or what the part number for the gasket would be?



Thanks in advance.

I figured it out. That is the cam position sensor and what is leaking is the camshaft seal underneath it. Time to change it out.

It was the camshaft seal. Kind of a pain to remove the seal itself. I used a normal seal puller but I cut the handle in half to make it short enough to be able to get leverage on it in such a tight spot. Once I figured that out it only took me about 20 seconds to remove it. Now my oil leak is gone. I wish I would have done it a year ago when it started.

Thanks for the post to the link. I was just living with the noisy start. I'm definitely going to be buying those two valves to get rid of that.
