After sitting in the garage the rear end drops low. After driving the vehicle again the rear end raises back up again.

Sounds like you have air ride and your system has developed a leak. I suggest getting it fixed soon. You will burn up your compressor and that can get expensive.

Rear rocker box leak on 2004 sportster XL 1200 C

It's possible one of the gaskets got pinched, or one of the cover pieces is warped. Either way, it's gonna have to come apart again to fix it.

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).

There is an oil leak that is coming from an area above the drivers side motor mount bracket . any ideas ? thank you

The rocker cover gaskets, they shrink up over time and leak, usually the rear drivers side on a V6 or V8 is the first spot. You can try tightening them up and stopping the leak, it is the cheapest route to take, but you will probably have to replace the cover gaskets, they do not come off easily. You have to remove the intake, most of the time. Then pull the covers, replace the spark plug seals, then the rocker cover gaskets, put it all back.Use no sealer to put them back on. No more leak. Hope this helps.

Use a film of gasket sealant on both sides of the new gasket when you replace it. When installing the cover, make sure there isn't any wiring or anything that could get caught under it.
