While I agree that it could be brake fluid, maybe coming down from the master cylinder or reservoir, engine oil can look pretty clear when there is only a small amount, for example a drop on your finger. My engine oil begins turning darker after only 5k miles to so, and it ends up dark amber after 10k miles.Engine oil, even when new, isn't clear. The only clear, oily liquid under the hood is brake fluid. I would seriously look at the master cylinder reservoir and check the level. Like now!
Transmission has no dipstick. It's "fill for life".
That oil drop is very clearly Amber in color.
Is that the normal procedure for this particular transmission? If so, it's reasonably simple. Presuming you can get under the car with it completely level, this should be doable. I know on some other transmissions it's a much more involved procedure.For the trans, one puts fluid in through the vent cap, run the car till the transmission is warm, then add more fluid until it comes out a fill level plug. Much cheaper to build and package.
May just be the oil presser sending unit leaking oil. It's an easy fix if it is.Checked engine dip stick today/ It was at half on the checker area now its quarter the way up/ So my guess is engine oil.
Not going to be pretty having the dealer fix it. And every time I have had someone work on a vehicle I have to fix things afterwards that the messed up or forgot.
Oh well, see what is going to happen next week.
Common engine oil leak locations
drain plug seal/washer
valve cover gasket
oil cooler line/clamps
oil pressure sender
oil pump seal
oil pan gasket
PCV return hose or separator
Of course a new car shouldn't have an oil leak. But it apparently does. So much for what should be and reality.I would hope on a brand new vehicle with barely 3k miles it wouldn't be any of these. Like I said its coming from the seam between the block and the bell housing. It doesn't look like its coming from any where above this.
I know exactly how you feel.Got it to the dealer and they can't figure out if it is trans or power steering. So they put dye in the trans and want to see it in a week.
I told them I wanted to see what they find and I wanted to look at it while on the rack. They came and got me when it was ready. Never did let me see what they found.
I sure hate having other people work on anything of mine. And they aren't doing much to build any trust with me.
