Help - Small Leak

Hello all,

I noticed that I have a small leak on my 05 F250. The leak appears to be above the oil pan where the tranny and engine meet. I'm not very mechanically inclined so I was hoping someone here might be able to give me some advice as to what it might be before I take it to the dealer. It's a very small leak as I don't see any fluids hit the ground unless it's sitting over a period of a couple days.

Also, are leaks covered by the 100K powertrain warranty?

Thanks for your time and help!

The 6.0 is 2 piece block, if thats where it looks like thats the leak than I would take it to a dealer and at least make a note of it.
It has a silicone rope seal between the 2 halfs, it may not be nothing major right now but could get worse.

Yes, that is where the leak appears to be coming from. Would that be covered under warranty? If not, is it an expensive fix?

It's most likely the short hose between the oil cooler and EGR cooler. Climb on top of the engine and reach under the turbo stand and see if you can feel some wetness around that hose. It leaks under the turbo and down the back of the block. Very common problem. About a 35 dollar hose and about two hours of labor by yourself.

I'll check that out tonight. By chance would that be covered by the powertrain warranty?
