    @jspearin Hi, the leak is so small that the two times I've attempted to have a Porsche mechanic try to find the source they were unable. I provided the pictures from below the motor because that is the area where the leak slowly drips down from and as you can see there is no noticeable built up of oil. I guess that is a long winded way of saying that I don't really know, but it isn't serious. The last guy I spoke with thought it could be the seal where the crank shaft goes into the motor and thought it would be a relatively easy fix with an aftermarket seal that does not require the motor to be taken apart , but that was just an educated guess.

    The description notes a minor oil leak. Any additional details on where the leak appears to be coming from?
