Thanks for the suggestions on where to look for the leak. It looks like it's the oil pressure sensor - located near the back of the head on the driver's side. The oil is running over the intake manifold. It's a slow leak, fortunately. Is this usually due to failure of the oil pressure sensor itself or the washer/gasket that seals it to the head? Should I replace the sensor or just get a new seal?
