Various 7.3 fluid leaks
So I pulled my truck inside the shop for the past 2 nights, and noticed both mornings some oil on the floor. I got under the truck, and right under the transmission (I have a manual transmission) there was some leaking oil. First off, I thought the transmission fluid was red, but this just looked like brownish motor oil. It was right around the drain plug, and I wiped it off and attempted to tighten it, but it was tight. There are a few bolts behind the drain plug and these were a little wet from the oil as well, but they also seemed tight. Any other ideas where this might be coming from? I'm going to pull my truck back in tonight and check the transmission fluid level.
