    So when i was changing my spark plugs today i noticed this leak. Its not bad but i figured i would see what others thought. Should i try and get the dealership to fix it? I worry they will just screw something else up trying to fix this. Thanks for the input

    Is there oil on the ground? That kinda looks like oil from the dipstick tube. Mine has that. These trucks usually leak oil from the timing cover on the driver's side if they are going to leak at all.

    Mine had same thing,timing cover leak though not valve cover, I honestly cant remember if it was TSB or extended warranty, but it was no charge to me.If it is the timing cover IT IS A BIG JOB, Im a 20 year M/C tech and I wouldnt touch mine.It was at the dealer for several days.

    If it matters mine looked exzactly like yours.
