Not sure if your valve cover seal is like the one on the 2.0 but I have a leak at the rear of the cover where the little half moon seal piece is.
Good luck

That can be a real can of worms. Start a new thread on that topic. Fordem is pretty good on diagnostics so you can figure it out.

The fuel pump has a breather hole on it. It may be worth checking if leaking oil is coming from
there.

Scrub that. The pipe to the left is the breather and it's not coming from there. It could be the fuel pump gasket though.

Default Camshaft seal

Might be your aft cam seal. Mine was leaking on the same spot.

Default Shaking

Your motor has a leak which means air is also leaking air is being lost through the leak. This screws up your vacuum as well, you can lose a small amount of vacuum and experience a significant amount of loss in power which can cause turbulence.

aft cam seal... does that require the top end be pulled?
