Is she peepy?

Those o rings have been replaced. I did double check a few nights ago and reached back to see if i felt oil. They both felt dry i think.What about the rear cam cap o-rings? (Don’t recall if thay’ve been mentioned in this thread.)
No we ended up not swapping oil pans because both drain plugs had aftermarket thread tap plugs on them.You swapped oil pans right? Did you use a new oil pan gasket? Chrysler gasket? What about sealer/RTV? FSM describes where the sealant needs to go.
Looks like you have multiple leaks.
...Or, as I've done in the past; and one of the few "quick fixes" I like; get a speedy plug. They work very well; I always asked the owner of the vehicle, but once installed, no more issues, and money saved!
Glad to hear it sealed.Update...
The oil leak at the sway bar/structural collar area and drain plug seemed to have stopped.
It was the drain plug the whole time. I was brave and gave 2 more quarter turns on the drain plug and it actually snugged up and sealed...
One possibility: The 3.2/3.5 is known for making a growling noise between 1000 and 2000 rpm if the a.c. compressor belt is slightly loose. What most people consider tight enough is not quite good enough on that belt. Of course you don’t want it over-tight, but you should get no more than 1/4 to 3/8” deflection of that belt with moderate thumb pressure mid-span....It has a weird "low pitched growl" at like 1k rpm. I feel like its valve train noise possibly but not sure...
