oil leak from underbody
1 Attachment(s)
Dear friends~~~

I have a problem with oil leaking underside of my car.
My indy shop manager told me that it must be related to the power steering fluid, however, he cannot also recognize which part he needs to order to replace it.
The picture will show you the two high pressure hose (red arrow) which are leaking now.
Does anyone have any idea what these lines are?

Thank you for any comment.

No idea, but it looks like BP was at work under your car.... :rofl:

Could be your oil filter housing seal leaking. If you search you will find DIY. It will soak your front diff....

Those lines with the red arrows run from the automatic transmission to the heat exchanger in the radiator.

its the oil filter housing seal...Mine is doing it now, I wil be replacing it this weekend. its only a $4 part from pelican. I advise you to get a new alternator belt also. Its worth the while to have it replaced while down there.
