leaking oil pan gasket?

after taking a drive tonight and the truck doing its retarted vibrating that no one knows where its coming from I crawled under to take a look for my self and found oil all along the side of the driverd side of the oil pan. Im not quite sure if its the gasket it or not but it goes from the front of the driver side of the engine block to the back corner of the pass side and up the metal shield of the transmission. Im am going to clean everything really good this weekend when I change my oil to make sure thats the problem. But has anyone changed this gasket before it looks pretty straight foward and the only really PITA will be the removing the starter if need be which im pretty sure has to be done




Here is a pic i cant get the camera in the right angle but it goes up about a 1/2 above the gasket onto the block.

Once my oil filter did not seat correctly and I had oil all over the side like you have and on the starter. It blew all under the truck . You may want to check the filter than do change with new filter. I always used pure 1 filter but after that I bam kind of leary of that brand.

It's probably just the oil filter. I had the same problem last oil change. Changing the oil pan gasket is a PITA on these. You have to pull the tranny back and lift the engine up to replace it. It's one of those long jobs where you just go ahead and replace the rear main seal at the same time. But there's a 90% shot it's just the oil filter.

Pure one has one of the best filters and gaskets on the market.. maybe you got the
1/1000000 bad one or had some old gasket stuck on there?

I havent really heard about pan gasket problems ever on these engines..
I'm thinking its probably something else..

whenever i change the oil, the filter will drip oil everwhere on the side of the pan and starter. Hopefully you gasket isn't leaking cuz it is a pita, and i never heard of the 3.0 having that problem either

i am hoping for it to only be a oil filter seal. but my truck seems to get all the problems that nobody else has. And i do clean everything off after i change the oil thats why im not sure where its coming from.
