Skernan Hi all. First post as I just joined. I have an oil leak between the engine and the transmission and was guessing it was the rear main seal. It might be a few weeks before I can get to it ... If I keep it full of oil how risky is it to drive on a trip?v

p0sitivevibez If you need clutch help let me know. I did mine with a driveway, cinder blocks, air tools and an engine hoist I borrowed (you can rent them). It's tedious as hell but it'll save you the $1000+ they're gonna quote you on like they did me.

Did it do any damage to the clutch friction material?

Sully313 VC Gasket is dry.

Could be the windage tray I suppose. But it is saturated between the engine and trans. There is no oil around the rest of the windage tray that I can see.

I get the oil on exhaust smell as well.

jwill2489 You've checked the VC gasket? Could be leaking down the back of motor

I believe my windage tray gasket is leaking, but not my rear mine
I don't lose much, but I can smell it on exhaust when I idle for a bit.

Sully313 THere's oil all over the underside but it is most prominent between the engine and trans.

It leaked 2 quarts in 2 months.

jwill2489 Every svt I've been in makes clutch noise at idle. At 76k your prob fine. I'm at 100k and only hear the noise here and there.

Why are you replacing the rear main. Its not common for that to go out.
