93 with 318.

I discovered today during my routine 3000 mile lof that I am leaking oil.... From what I had time to look at it kinda looks like a rear main but I "think" I saw it coming from higher up than that. Its leaking down both sides and Im kinda worried. I love this truck and I wanna keep her runnin strong. Any common leaks??

Check the valve covers. Valve cover bolts are known to work loose. Try retightening first. If the leak doesn't stop, get silicone replacment gaskets and tighten to spec.
Just my $.02

Thanks for the info. I am going to look into it more when I get to work tomarrow. I was extremely hungery at the time and being diabetic and the fact that it wasnt pouring out I wasnt too concerned at the time. Thanks again.
