I don't know what it is. Looks like some kind of a seal. If you can make it out in the picture please let me know, and if it can be replaced or fixed without any major engine work. Thanks.

That doesn't look very severe from the pic, however the chain tensioner gaskets and valve cover gaskets are common leakers. Parts are cheap, labor will probably be 2-3 hours. It's a straightforward job, although positioning one of the c.t. gaskets is kinda tricky.

I just had this done under warranty and the dealer gets 12 hours of labor to do the rear seals. Practically the whole engine has to be lowered.
I know any indy that knows a shortcut and its 5-6 hours.. with 10 years experieince.

I believe the item in picture is the cam position sensor.

They just did mine too under warranty so I don't know how many hours they banged AoA for. However I had the car back in 1 day so I highly doubt it was 12 hours.
But then again...when I did get it back my turbos mysteriously died, so who knows. Knuckleheads.
