    Transmission leak

    Hi guys. Just noticed a small pool of tranny oil right smack in the middle of the tranny by the drain bolt. Seems to be leaking from the crease where both sides meet. Any ideas what's causing this? Back gasket? Bad drain plug and crush washer? I've never changed the tranny oil and it's still full. I had my clutch changed out by the dealership about 3 months ago.

    If it's got 20xxx miles this isn't your problem. It's the dealer's problem. From the photos it does not seem to be the drain plug, but rather the seam for the gearbox casing. In any case, arrange for a free rental and have fun.
