    Oil leak from transmission area

    Hey all, this past week I was out wheeling with my Jeep. Went through a mud pit and got stuck...mistake #1 was to play in the mud, #2 was to push in my clutch and try to back up and go forward again . I really thought i had it but didnít. Anyways, after that my clutch was almost non existent for a little bit. Figured it just got wet and after a little bit it finally came back to normal. Tonight I was under the Jeep checking for any damage from the rocks that might have happened. Well to my surprise there was only minimal scrapes. But thatís when I seen oil. It was coming from the little ďwindowĒ at the front of the transmission. I wiped everything down and will check it tomorrow after I drive it, donít have time tonight. Could this be from when I was stuck?? Iím not thinking itís a rear main seal already. Itís a 19í with only 3600 miles on it. Yes 3,600. Didnít buy it to look at hahaha. I checked the engine oil and the dipstick is showing good. Any input or advice? Iím hoping tomorrow after my ride to work itís dry under there and it was just from my mishap.

    I was going to take some but didnít think about it until I had it all cleaned off and was back in the house. Itís not a leak thatís leaving a puddle. But it had the bottom of the transmission wet. Coming from the inspection window between he transmission and engine....

Isnít nowhere near as bad as it was. I only have one little drop from the little rubber boot thing there. But nothing is wet underneath today.. any ideas?

    You really should consider just getting this to the dealer. Even if the forum figures out the issue, you're prolonging the inevitable in my opinion. You have a brand new Jeep that has not been abused that is leaking fluids. Dealer issue if you ask me.

    I have no problem taking it there. I was just wondering what was the cause.. does this happen normally if you were in my situation? What are they going to fix?

    A transmission leaking fluid on a new vehicle with 3600 miles is definitely NOT normal. I wheel my 18 pretty hard and I have NO leaking anywhere. If I did, I would be calling dealer that very day!
    Who cares what we (forum) think.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
