Anyone experience an oil leak from the left side, rear cylinder while running? It's the old man's Nomad 06 1600 33k. I have to see it for myself, but in the meantime perhaps someone who knows something could chime in.

Where at on the cyl ? In the spark plug area it could be the timing chain rubbing the spark plug sleeve, if so it will need the cam chain tensioner extenders and a new sleeve, not a hard fix at all. At 33k you might want to check into the extenders anyway.

If itsa the top, there is a half moon rubber seal on the rocker cover that has a seepage issue if not installed right. The problem is to fix it means pulling the motor so generally people either learn to live with it, or cover the area with silicone which looks hideous.
