Oil leak..

I am trying to find out where oil could be coming from on the back of the engine. I smelled oil yesterday and I just looked and found oil is 2 qts low and there is a lot of oil laying on the top of the front part of the transmission. I also have oil spray on the firewall. Is there something above where the transmission attaches to the engine that could be leaking oil???

usually there is caused by the valve cover gaskets, there easy to replace, just getting everything outta the way to get the valve covers off is the hardest part! make sure u get the updated ones that are blue, they are supposed to last longer and dont need to be retightened due to gasket crush

felpro, got them from advance auto, there just normal replacements, there like a 2nd generation updated version, not sure what the differences are, but they dont crush as much and supposed to not dry out as quick so they last longer too

x2 on the VCG. I just did the left side and am getting ready to do the right. I just used an OEM from the stealership. I never heard of the blue ones and can't speak to them. Like he said, most of the work is removing everything to get to the cover.

don't forget to apply time to this. our jeep has been leaking for years, but not enough to raise an eyebrow over. spots on the ground, let alone the tranny cover.
