Customer Question
***** ***** waggoner, small...

***** ***** waggoner, small oil leak. Dripped to a quarter size after sitting for 5 hours.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Changed the oil last night. New oi filter too. I noticed oil built up by the oil filter. I guess it is running down from somewhere, coming down oil filter side, hitting oil pan in the top right corner, and coming down the oil pan and slowly dripping off the bottom of the oil pan.

Dodge Ram, ok, I was looking at Jeep wagoneer, lol. Thanks.

Can you see on the rear of the intake manifold, there is the oil pressure sender. They can leak a small amount at first and as they progress the leak can become more severe.

Just see if it is wet with oil. Also if there any trace on the top part of the bell housing, (trans) that may indicate an intake leak, thanks.

Ok, it is late, and I have a busy day tomorrow. I will look at this late Saturday or Sunday. Is this a big big deal or am I ok for a day or two?
Dodge Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

At that rate the leak should not be a problem. If it gets much worse you will know it, the oil will get on the exhaust and smoke quite a bit. Thanks
