V8 Engine Too Busy To See Oil Leak Area

Post by Oka »

I used my endoscope to see where the oil is leaking from this so busy V8 engine. Yes, I saw a little bit oil leak, but would like to see more. With this engine, would I need to take off something to be able to see more?

Underneath the car, the oil seem to be coming from the passenger side of the engine.
Please, what would be the better method to see more possible oil leak area in this V8?
