Here are a couple of known issues on the vehicle.

Expert:  david craig replied 4 months ago.

although these are problem areas they may not be what the issue is on your vehicle. I would also have the front main seal checked for seepage. I have highlighted that area on the attachment. another possible area of concern is the oil filter housing gasket
