Glow plug seal leak?

I've noticed some oil on my tranny filter so I inspected.. Looks to be coming from the driver side glow plug closest to the firewall..

Is this an easy fix? I have an aftermarket warranty for it ($100 ded) but didn't know if it's better for me to fix or just let them do it?

Should be easy enough, if the part costs more than 100 take it in...they just pop in and out...pretty straight forward deal...probably have to buy the whole harness for the one side...

I haven't attempted to see if its loose, is that possible? Maybe I just need to push on slightly to snap in place? Or you think that gasket/ seal is bad?

I think the whole thing is the seal, so the whole part that snaps over the glow plug also seals the valve cover. I'd imagine salt and junk would dry out that rubber after a while...yes definitely try to snap it back in, maybe put some dielectric grease around the exposed rubber portion to keep it from dry rotting?? It wouldn't hurt to put some on the inside either... Hopefully you get lucky and it just came loose on you...

I think ford has a special little tool for pulling off the glow plug boots, not 100% though...

Thanks for the info... I don't see much salt or anything like that as I'm in Dallas and it was a Texas truck, but who knows.. Man made stuff can fail at any time even if its new. I appreciate the info!
