Is this an Olds' motor? Likely the intake manifold gaskets. I had a leak in the rear right side. Common issue with Olds engines.

The dipstick tube pulls out but you have to see if you can turn it a bit first, spray carb cleaner, twist and work in and out to remove it. Will ruin your day if you break it
