Question oil filler neck leaking? What the h*ll?

Hey guys, I changed my oil last night and noticed a strange sound while adding my new oil from a 5 quart jug using a funnel. I wasnt overflowing the funnel and just kept adding.....I looked under the car after adding the 5 quarts and holy crap 1 quart of new oil was under the car! (yes the plug was in)....it appears to be from the vacinity of the oil fill neck at the back of the engine. I couldnt see anything from the top or the bottom. What the hell? I think I may have a something going on with the neck....cracked? It doesnt appear loose.....Help!

Thanks
Brock

Two o-rings. One top one bottom. Yours should have a small and a large. Large on the bottom.

You will be surprised how hard and brittle those o-rings will be....

You will also be surprised to see how much work is involved in replacing those two O-rings.

Four fasteners and a couple of vacuum lines.

Intake removal?

Do you need to take the intake off to replace the rings? Can I just simply pour the oil a little at a time to get it in the pan without losing it in the neck?

Thanks guys

Brock

Until you stick it in a hot engine with lots of oil. Use the red/orange colored ones.
