Has anyone had problems with oil leaking between engine and transmission 2002 highlander with 3.0 engine---had it up on the hoist last night at work and noticed a small leak in that area----any problems with engine crankshaft rear seals?
I do have a "seepage" leak in that area. It has a very small amount of oil that seeps through at the bottom of the engine where the transmission and Engine mate together. I get about 2 drops per month from it. I have had the leak for about 2 years and while being very concerned at first. Over time the leak has not gotten and worse. I continue to use Mobile synthetic and have not gone back to Dino oil but folks say the oil seepage will stop if I switch back to regular Dino oil.
