 Somewhat related, my V8 has been to a 4th dealership (not to mention
 thousands of $'s later) for that darn oil leak that seems to plague all V8's

 (at least the ones I've talked to about it).  Once again, it wasn't
 I've had virtually every seal, gasket, rack and pump changed (including the 
 TSB about the tranny oil line) and IT STILL LEAKS!!!!  Of course, this is 
 right on the exhaust so that while I sit at lights, embarassing clouds of 
 smoke billow from underneath the car.  It sure spoils an otherwise wonderful

 Any ideas from the list on what to do?

Not yet!  I just look forward to somewhat windy days.  Maybe a special drip
tray needs to be made to keep the fluid from dripping onto the exhaust.  I
believe it hits right at the crossover X pipe that joins the headers to the
catalytic converters.  Hope to get underneath this weekend.
