Oil leak

Hey guys,I have had an oil leak for years on my F-350 ,it only amounts to maybe three or four drop in a week,well since I don't drive it much it has gotten the size of a baseball in a month and it drips from the flywheel inspection cover weep hole, When I drive it and get it good and hot it won't leak for days, any ideas?

I have spent some time watching this guy's videos and am impressed with the transfer of knowledge he was willing to provide.

Check out this particular link for your leak problem. I'll be doing the same thing on my new-to-me 1995 F250 PSD. Sounds like I have the same indication you are seeing: that drip from the flywheel inspection cover.

Some of his help videos are good because he documents them well.
Only problem is he's sniffed way too much diesel fumes and some of his stuff is whack. Especially his 'performance.'
Just a caution. Just don't believe everything he says.

Thanks. I have a pretty good B.S. meter. However, I have no problem with his basic how-to information.

Can you give me some examples of "some of his stuff is whack." ??
