Hmm, Thanks for the input ? Gen 2, 2011 model. I did not remove the gasket from the engine, it seemed to be secured at the half moon areas and I did not want to damage it by forcefully trying to remove it. I did clean the gasket as best I could without it being fully removed. Hard to tell but maybe some weeping from the half moon area.
In any event I want to try the uv oil dye, never used it before so curious to see how it works, figure the $8 for dye is cheap before tearing things down and will be good to confirm only one point of leaking. I will post back after installing the dye, hopefully I can take a few pictures showing the illuminated dye from the black light.
This forum is fantastic, really helps weekend mechanics like me! Thank you!
