my oil leak has been upsetting me any good ways to pino point it and would it be worth it to pull the engine just to fix the leak and drop it back in?

is it coming from the back or the front? Go by the nearest GM dealer and ask for some engine oil leak tracer dye. Put it in the engine, clean off all the suspected areas and go drive it. You can use a black light or a UV light and find the leak that way.

You can get the leak dye at most auto parts stores. Use a Minimag with the blue filter

(red/blue filters come in the accessory kit)
to spot where the leak is coming from. The source of the leak will show up as fluorescent yellow.

No sense in pulling the engine if you don't know what's leaking.
