    I have 3800 miles on my car and I have an oil leak on the right front that we thought was coming from the valve cover. I also thought it was some blow by coming out of the oil dipstick tube but have basically ruled both of those out. There is some oil on the lower side of the manifold/header but its not coming from the top and now its running back to the starter. The underside of the valve cover is dry as a bone. It may be coming from the timing cover. Has anyone out there run in to this yet?
    Also, I took it to my local dealer and they couldnt work on it because they didnt have a tech that was trained to work on the Hellcats so they wouldnt get paid by FCA. Im looking for a dealer in Richmond that has a good tech that can get this straight before it gets worse. image.jpg image.jpg

    That sucks............I didn't realize that a dealership had to have an SRT trained tech to work on these cars.

    That's news to me. I wish you the best of luck!

    That's weird and unfortunate that you have a oil leak, but yes, there needs to be a srt tech to work on your car..Even oil changes
