Thank you, Bluebee. I think I will be reusing the end cap on my M54 then since my new one doesn't come with one. If I didn't find one there, I'll just devise some way to plug it.

change it. 90% it's bad. I did it at 130k.

Oil leaked in these locations splatters around in vehicle movement, so trying to guess where leaked oil comes from is hard.
