There are three places above that pan that the leaks could be coming from. 1- Tail shaft of the transmission.Would be a red color. 2-3- Input and Output shafts on the transfer case. More the color of motor oil. There may be more oil in that skid pan just not at the correct angel to let it run off.

My jeep 1988 start leaking all fluid do I need to replced leak from bettwing engine and trans

Yes. This is a main seal from the crankshaft, engine oil, A freeze plug from the back of the coolant passages, or a Torque converter seal which leaks transmission fluid. None are simple or good. It will need to be fixed. Just make sure any other work is done that needs to be when they do this repair. If it is engine oil, it can wait until it gets to be a nuisance. Purchase a pan from Walmart and keep it under your vehicle. Carry a thick cardboard or metal pan when you go shopping if it is that bad. a few in puddle over night will not cause damage as long as you keep the oil up. Excessive leaking dripping from the exhaust and undercarriage may cause fire. Keep an eye on things if you cannot afford the engine oil repair now. Trans oil and coolant will need immediate attention.

well it could be several things like pan plug seal cracked, oil pan leaking, rear main seal bad, front engine seal bad, head bolts not properly torqued, head could be cracked, but I would start with the oil pan drain plug seal and work from there.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, leaking coolant from what looks like the front of the oil pan, is that possiable?

not unless you have coolant in your oil(it would look like chocolate milk on your dip stick) its probably leaking out somewhere up above and dripping down to that spot where your finding it. wipe everything down, start the engine and watch it as it runs to see if you can identify its point of guess would be the radiator hose or the thermostat housing. hope this helps

Oil is leaking from car, but there doesnt seem to be oil on the motor.

HI. This may be a oil pan gasket issue. The gasket is facing downward towards the ground, so the leaking oil in this area would not necessarily touch the enigne block. It would actually run down the sides of the bottom section of the oil pan and the rim areas. Also; make sure that it is indeed engien oil. It may be transmission fluid or power sterring fluid, as well. Raise the vehicle or slide under the frame to take a closer look at the oil and transmissin pans to locate the actual leak point.

In most cases of this nature, it will be either the transmission pan gasket or oil pan gasket that will be the culprit.

Large oil leak from front of engine

Usually leaks at the front or back of the engine are from the oil pan. Sometimes you can slow the leak, or possibly stop it, by tightening the small bolts around the perimeter of the oil pan. These are probably 7/16 or 1/2 inch bolts. You didn't go into much detail about what kind of leak you have, so I am assuming it is a very thin puddle of engine oil. If it is automatic transmission oil your car will stop moving eventually.

Oil leak from behind the fuel sytem

Assuming that the drain bolt is tight, is there damage to the oil pan? If so, that could be the source of the leak. A gallon a week is the fuel contents of the oil system so it needs to be fixed ASAP. I would put some cardboard under it and watch for the drips to start forming and follow them back up. I would also check for a loose oil filter or a pinhole in the oil filter case.
