What is right behind the oil pan?
I'm no mechanic so I hope this post is in the right thread...bump if not. I noticed a very small couple of drops of oil on the drive yesterday. I looked underneath and saw there was some kind of cover missing two bolts that was hanging right behind the oil pan. I could see gears inside the cover. It seems to be hanging there rather stably right at the back of the oil pan.
Everything still drives fine (fingers crossed). And the oil spot on the driveway is only about 2inches in diameter.
SO what is that dust cover thing? Is it something I can simply fix by finding bolts to fit in there? Does it lend itself to something more serious?
BTW, my truck is a 1996 F250 4x4 CC SB PSD w/ 216K on it.
