    Any good degreaser will work. Then use dye and a blacklight to determine the source of the leak. If it leaks when the engine is stopped, you can also put a piece of cardboard under the engine overnight.

    We seem to be on the same page. I ordered a small uv kit on e-bay. Thanks for your reply
