Best Answer

If the oil is leaking from the timing chain cover behind the Harmonic Balancer (main large double pulley the belts run on). After removing the belts you need to remove the Harmonic Balancer using a puller, not to damage it, and then replace the seal in the cover. Inspect the back side of the Harmonic Balancer. The seal only seals to the shoulder of the Harmonic Balancer not the back face. If the shoulder's surface is not smooth replace it or it will leak again. Apply some light grease on the seal and mating surface of the Harmonic Balancer and reinstall. Re-install the belts. If it is leaking around the edges of the cover the sealant may need replacing. Also check the condition of the sealant around the oil pan. Both would require removal/cleaning and re-sealing.
