    Looking for help in solving my oil leak problem. Seems to be coming from the intake manifold or egr valve, any suggestions? I'm thinking egr, cause I don't see how oil could leak from the intake manifold.

    what motor?

    egr valve? oil? not related...

    clean the area up really good, then run it for a while and look for drips or leaks.

    i dont understand why there would be oil going to the EGR valve.

    sure it's not leaking from the valve cover gasket then? maybe it didnt seat well? what size leak are you talkin, drip, run, just a dirty spot that forms under the leak..?
