6.7L Oil Leak

Well I hate to post this because I love my new truck but this morning I noticed oil spots on my driveway. Sure enough I crawl under and this is what I see. I hope it's something small. Off to the dealer tomorrow to get it looked at.

Hopefully it's something simple.

Not changing subjects but, is that the oil cooler in that second pic???

If so, that's awesome!! No more ripping half the engine apart to get to the oil cooler.

Go Ford!

Let us know what the dealer says bro.

Let us know what it was...

Did you change your oil and not put the dipstick back (or someone else change your oil and not put it back properly?). I hear it is "tough" to seat and if you don't it blows oil all over the place.

The drain plug looks like it isn't tightened all the way.

Look closer. It isn't the drain plug. The oil is coming from higher up.

Looks like it could be the rear main

PS - Sorry to hear, I am sure it will be fixed soon

Looks like it's slinging oil out of the rear main seal.
