I have a 1997 f-350 CC dually with 287.000 miles on her with an occasional drip .Because of the high price of fuel I have parked the gentle giant and started driving a company truck ,so I drive it to Lowes or HD every other weekend ,maybe 10 mile ,well I noticed that now the oil leaks and so does the trans fluid, could the seals be drying up from lack of use? can I put in an additive to swell the seals?:dunno:

Have you checked the fluid levels to see if the leak is substantial or still small and you just notice it more since it sits?
