i will give alittle more detail, looks to be comming from on the head somewhere, freeze plug? harness? valve cover? seems to be running down from up in that area and dripping down the bellhousing onto the front drive shaft where the boot is. I do ALOT of highway driving and the truck only has 62k on it, had one injector replaced on it. (broke a gasket? seal? at dealership?) also it seems to smell on long trips say over 2+ hours on the highway, seping alittle maybe hitting an up pipe? its not bad at all but im just a perfectionist. think i should worry about it or just takel it when i do studs and everything... im assuming in the next 10k
