OIL LEAK!

Looks like I have an oil leak from the corner of the oil pan. It appears to be coming down the backside of the engine where the engine and bell housing meet, right at the back of the starter. Heres some pics..



You guys think its the pan leaking?

sorry bud, your looking at 1000s of dollars to replace that 90$ pan unless you pull a piece of the frame and re weld it in. that is after you verify its your pan leaking.. im in the same boat, although if you havent already do this..

drop your starter when the trucks cold, decrease and lightly sand the pan and area where you think its coming from. then watch for drip. If it ends up being your pan, this is how i fixed mine for like 30$

order the starter kit from por 15
sand the entire pan
clean and prep with de greaser from por 15 kit
layer jb weld over the crack, allow 1-2 days to dry fully
spray the rest of the pan with rust inhibitor
seal with por 15 rust protection.

Jb weld is an old bandage on oil pans for years and years now without issues

I would make sure its not coming from the top of your engine first, ie turbo pedestal or hpop.
