Oil Leak @ Bellhousing? Here's Why....

This is an often overlooked source of engine oil leaks that everyone assumes is coming from the oil pan or rear main seal. Most of the time it is from split CAC tube hoses that only appear to have oil moisture to them upon further inspections. Take a look I show you what to look for how it pools up and where it all comes from and how to change them out properly so the angles are correct and there is no blow offs.

Re: Oil Leak @ Bellhousing? Here's Why....

I'm definitely going to check this out! Mine has had a small oil leak since I've had it and I always assumed it was an oil pan gasket. But I'm def going to check this out. Especially since it only leaks after running it. When it sits in the garage all week, it doesn't leak. Never worried too much about it since my oil level never dropped (and I really didn't wanna go thru the job of replacing that gasket, a PITA from what I hear). Now I have a new place to check. Great post!

My OEM tube at the turbo became "mesh" like. Couldn't feel the cracks, but sure could see it once removed.
