what part is this ??

While cleaning mud underneath my WJ, found a Oil Stain on one of the part, this is next to the Oil Pan. Want to make sure I didn't damage anything during wheeling. May be the seal is bad.



Please help.

I'm not sure what part of the WJ you are referring to..

That doesn't look like an oil leak though, I have the stains on my oil pan, both diffs, tranny pan, and right at the rear main like in the picture. Unless you spot actual oil I highly doubt your seal is leaking, or perhaps it's leaking at an extremely slow rate and is nothing to worry about.

That looks like the bottom of your bell housing (transmission). Your rear main seal (engine) may be leaking abit. This isn't caused by offroading but by wear. I have a constant drip and a nice stain in my driveway to match. Unless your loosing alot of oil or trans fluid I wouldn't worry about it.

This part actually sits between the Transmission Pan and Oil Pan.

Its is not drippin any oil, but little worried after I saw the stain.
