Engine oil from a rear main seal can destroy the clutch the same as the transmission fluid, but that would have been a less likely leak and one that wasn't covered by this TSB.

The more common leak would be the one from a transmission seal leaking onto the clutches and seeping out of the case between the engine and gearbox.
