I have noticed an oil leak from somewhere above the oil filter. From looking around at various forums, it seems like a common problem would be for the oil filter adapter gasket to go bad in 4.6 L engine. But not many people have complained about this in a v6 3.8l engine. Has this happened to anyone on a v6 ? Also, I cannot find the replacement gasket online for a v6, whereas it's easily available for a 4.6..
No it is not a common problem on most 3.8s. Although your oil pump oring might be worn out. Could you post two pictures of your oil leak from the bottom looking up and from your engine bay looking down? That way I can isolate the issue better.
