Where's my oil leak?
I hate to post a stupid thread like this, but was hoping you guys could help me with identifying the source of my oil leak. I've got a slow leak, maybe a drip a day, but it's certainly enough to be annoying and spot up my driveway.
It looks like it's coming from the bell housing of the transmission which made me think it's the rear main seal. However, I smell oil burning when stopped in traffic, making me think it's dripping on the exhaust (no smoke from exhaust or anything). I've recently done valve cover gaskets (that were leaking at the time), and the oil cooler gasket. It doesn't look like those are leaking now, but I should probably take another good look to make sure.
Is there anything else that I should be looking for? I really hate to pull the transmission and clutch to do the rear main if that's not the issue. It definitely looks like it's coming from the back of the motor and I'm not sure what else it could be. Appreciate any feedback you guys may have. I'd love for it to be an an easy little sensor gasket or something, but I can't ever seem to get off that easy.
