Oil Leak/Sweating V6

At my last oil change I noticed alot of oil "sweating" out of the front of my engine. Mostly on the passenger side by the altenator and a little on the other side. It seems to be continuing and building up. There is never any oil on the ground or on body parts below the engine. I have never had to add oil in between changes. I run Moblie 1 syn oil. Started using syn after first oil change. The engine had about 15000km when I first noticed the problem and it now has 21000km. Is this happening to anyone else? Picture below.

Re: Oil Leak/Sweating V6

I just checked on mine and 0 leakage. Sounds like you have a serious problem right there!

Could be an issue with the oil filter which is on top of the engine. Perhaps it's missing the o-ring seal or perhaps it has 2 o-rings stuck together?

I would inspect the oil filter. If everything is ok there, then bring it to the dealer. An engine should not be leaking like that!!

Re: Oil Leak/Sweating V6

Have you checked your oil filer housing? Mine cracked recently. I could see oil pooled around the filter housing by peering through the hole in the engine cover.
