Oil leaks on a 5.7L hemi
Just discovered that I have an oil leak. The oil pan is wet with oil and if the jeep sits long enough I see spots on the ground. I haven't dove into investigating it yet. I'm just curious if anyone with the hemi has had an oil leak and where the leak was. I know if its the oil pan or timing cover it will cost a fortune to get it fixed.

My Reality Check Bounced
Some here found that tightened up the oil pan bolts a bit can stop oil pan gasket leaks.. but you may want to verify what kind of fluid it is before going too far.

Happened on my 2017 - I can't remember exactly what the fix was but I took it to the dealer and they said "yeah, we get quite a few of these with the hemi - it's a simple XX" and then they fixed it - took no time and was almost no money.

Iíve had a leak from what I believe is the oil pan gasket. Iíve tried once tightening the bolts, but it recently has become worse. Yesterday I tried again and this time removed the aluminum stiffener that prevents access to the rear bolts. Time will tell if it works, underside of car is a mess, but really itís not dropping the level over oil change intervals.
