mine had oil on the bellhousing and it turned out to be the oil from when the oil filter was changed. did not have any on the front though.

Oil Leak

Marc

I Had The Front Seal Changed At 5000 Miles I Hope It's Not Leaking Already. What About The Cam Sensor Or The High Pressure Fuel Lines

the oil on the bellhousing could be from the cam sensor....but the only thing that causes oil to be on that spot just below the crank pulley is the front crank seal.......its a common leak on these.......the cam sensor is left front of the motor, kinda tough to see......but the oil can go back from there and make the bellhousing.......Marc

Oil leak

Ok shoot

After reading all these leaks there, I crawled under my PSD. Hum, never found oil on the cement but I do have oil on the housing center front of transmission. I wiped it off. I could not see where oil ran down but on the front end mid of bell housig was about a 4" area with oil on it.

WHat do you guys think? I just passed 3,000 miles.

clean it up REALLY good......spray all around the turbo......and all by the bellhousing with a pressure washer and a bunch of de greaser......i see yours is an 06.....and there were a bunch of them that i have chased this ghost before. when they put the turbo on, there was a bunch of assembly oil that dumped out of where the oil comes out of the turbo, so there is no leak, it was just something the factory was too lazy to figure out.....i would clean it up really good.....then if it comes back, try cleaning it agian......because you do not want someone tearing into that motor if there is nothing wrong with it......make SURE there is a problem so you dont create more by trying to fix something that wasnt broke..........Marc

Oil Leak

THank

I did as you say. I agree.. I do not like having it messed with unless it must be. I did go back again after the post. The very front of the bell housing where it comes together. It may have run down both sides of the seem. I seem to see some traces but not sure.

That front cover is a dust cover right? I would guess it came thru it. I seem to see some traces on both sides but they start only 1-2 inches on that seem. LOL but not any higher. It is like it ran down that seem on both sides and accumulated on the center of the bellhousing and stopped.

I do think you are right at this point in time. I have seen these post for the past month. So i regularly checked my driveway for oil and to this point I do not have a single drop.

a lot of times you will find some oil on the lowest corner of each head...and a little on the starter too with this "residual....meaning the factory was too lazy to clean it" oil........clean the bottom back corners of the heads and the starter too....or it will show back up agian....the stuff that is already in the bellhousing just takes time to come out.....Marc
