Oil leak, but from where
My 03 WJ v8 has begun leaking from somewhere near the rear seal, but I haven't been able to see exactly where yet. I'm waiting for a warmer day to crawl under and see where the dye I added shows up.
When I noticed it, i saw some oil coming down the back of the oil pan, but not an appreciable amount between the two surfaces that look like they mate the engine to the transmission. Does this mean it's more likely an oil pan gasket?
I noticed it first, mostly, because the oil coming down the oil pan is dripping directly on one of the converters, making a stink.
Is there a chance this is something easy, like a pan gasket, or is it most likely the rear main seal? If so, how much is that going to set me back?
