Car has been in the body shop for 4 months now haven't drove it since and I never saw an oil leak or anything on my drive way when I had the car. After putting on Che's dual canister I really didn't like how it fit so I took it in today to the muffler shop for some slight corrections and new TIPS. While the car was lifted I looked under and saw a tiny drop of oil just hanging there near the head and no leakage around the oil pan seals or bolt.

Is this something for me to worry about?

Thanks Guys!

Can't get a picture but you are right....the tiny leak is at that point left of the tensioner

i replaced my o-ring and put some gasket sealer on the tensioner and its still a minor leak too. i dunno where exactly its coming from but it looks like its coming from somewhere around the timing chain tensioner.

run it a little bit and keep an eye on the oil level. You may have had some gaskets shrink up due to disuse, getting some regular heat on 'em might swell 'em back up a bit.
