Leaking oil from between the engine and gearbox

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

The distributor is located right atop the trans and engine, it can leak oil and appear to be a main seal leak.

Otherwise, you have a bad crank seal if its oil, and bad trans seal if its trans fluid. In these cases the trans or engine has to be broken apart from one another.

You better hope for a leaky distributor, or even a leaky intake gasket by the distributor.

I have a 2003 Dodge Ram Hemi. An amber light in the upper left dash and a flashing red light in the lower right is displays periodically. When this happens the engine runs very rough and wants to cut out etc...Is this an emissions problem? The truck is still under warranty. Less than 70,000 miles and less than 7 years. I also have an oil leak coming from just inside the left front aprox. 12 to 18 inches over. The fluid is red in color. Is this the 4wd gearbox oil or power stirring?


Use the warranty, if you get someone to poke around it could void the warranty.\015\012 Red fluid is normally transmission fluid, sometimes power steering. Is the fluid oily or watery, some brands of antifreeze are red.\015\012 A flashin ... 2003 Dodge Ram Maxi

I have an oil leak in my 1987 Nissan D12 pickup Z24 engine. The oil leak is coming out from around the base of the PCV tube, where it is inserted into the engine block.

Need engine schematic for oil flow I have an oil leak above the oil filter around the oil pressure sending unit (I think). The filter doesn't have much oil in it, so I think something is plugged. I assume I wouldn't have the leak if the pump was bad. It only leaks when the engine is running and it leaks pretty bad (not driveable).
