Gday mate,geoff here, there are 3 things that can leak there, 1st is coolant as there should be a freeze plug at the back of each cylinder bank in there.
2nd engine oil as there is a seal on the crankshaft and a plug at the back of the Cam tunnel, mostly if its engine oil it will be the crank seal.
3rd is gear/transmission oil, front seal on the gearbox if that is the case, also make sure that the oil isn't coming from the top and leaking down to look like its the bell housing leaking, as the valley cover and rocker covers extend back to just above the bell housing, hope this helps, geoff.

V6 coolant leak


If it is in fact between the bellhousing and block, and not leaking down onto the outer surface of the bellhousing, its the freeze plug on the back of the block.
The engine or trans would need to be pulled to get to it.

Bellhousing leak


did you just have the fluid replaced in the transfer case?? if the answer is no, the you may have a leak from the series of seals that are internal. you will have to have the transfer case removed and have the CVT seal replaced and other seals inside of the transfer case. lengthy repair and costly also. the transfer case has to be removed to replace the CVT side seal and while you are in there replace seals inside of the transfer case also. that what its sounds like to me. transfer case seal leak or the inside CVT seal leak. however if its leaking right from the bellhousing, it also could be the torque converter seal. this is when proper diagnosis comes to play. if its d converter seal, than the trans has to come out. have this one checked by someone that knows what they are doing. could be transfer case seal leak and it could be converter leak.

Coolant leak bellhousing 27


More than likely the housing has a crack or a bad gasket. The best way to find out is to disassemble it or take it in to the shop.

BAD TRANSMISSUION LEAK


Check the axle shaft seals where the two drive axles enter the transaxle. If leaking there the axle will have to be removed to replace the seal.
Look at the bottom pan of transaxle. If leaking from pan gasket, the pan will have to be removed and transmission drained to replace pan gasket.
There is a transaxle main shaft seal on the front of transaxle, hidden by the bellhousing that mounts to rear of engine.. If the shaft seal is leaking, fluid will be dripping from bottom of bellhousing, and when inspection cover is removed, fluid will be evident inside the bellhousing.
Check also the transmission fluid cooling lines, where the two lines exit the transaxle case, and go to front of car to an external cooler mounted in front of radiator, or going into a separate reservoir in the radiator.

1996 chevrolet impala ss oil leak rear of engine


Is it engine oil or transmission fluid? Is it driven often or does it sit in the garage? If engine oil, then possibly the rear seal is leaking into the bellhousing as you drive and then draining on the floor after you stop. If ****** fluid, then possibly front seal on ****** is leaking. If car sits for long periods of time the input shaft seal can allow fluid to leak past the shaft. This usually will fix itself when driven. Can't promise it will fix itself permanently. Will not be an easy fix if either seal needs replacing (or cheap).

I have Mercedes c240 2002 ... my transmission fluid was leaking... when the mechanic check the pan and the lines and seal there where no leaks ... he cleaned everything off and I drove it 10 miles and came...


the most common place for those transmissions to leak is the actual electronic connector comming out of the front bellow the bellhousing, the connector is available although i must warn you that the connector bolts in to the "conductor plate" the transmissions internal (made of plastic) computer which can break during this repair as the center bolt can strip and the only way to get it out is to break it, breaking the computer
good luck
