oil leak

i still have an oil leak. i have changed oil pan,valve cover and intake gaskets twice. I changed the rear main also. Hard to tell where it comes from. Does the dye from the leak detection kits for oil hurt the oil? Will it have to be changed after? I have never used one, do they work?

Re: oil leak

Yes the dye works, no you don't need to change the oil after adding it
