Oil Leak Question and New Scanguage
The good news. Got my scanguage hooked up today and went for about a 45 minute jaunt. EOT consistent around 197* and the ECT was around 191*. I was relieved on that one. Bone stock with 114k on it.
Now the issue with the oil leak. It is at the bell housing as many are. But it is inside the bell housing somewhere. I have crawled all over the motor and the top is dry everywhere I look. The valley looks dry as far as I can tell. I have cleaned the crap out of the bottom of the bell housing and oil pan. The drip is about 1-2 drops after driven. It come out of the joint where the transmission mounts to the motor. None on the sides of the bell housing where it might be running down. It literally seeps through this seem/joint. I know the rear mains are not common and about the bedplates. If the bedplate is leaking, would it be leaking into the bell housing? Could something on the back of the motor be leaking down through and into the bell housing. I know what ever it is, is not running around the outside and ending up at the bottom of the bell housing. Thanks.
