homiegx I have similar problem mine has oil leaking on the bell housing started after I had a new clutch out in. Took it back and they said it was my main seal that was leaking I will attempt to see if the bolts you mentioned are loose.

Jiffydarren Had a similar problem. Thought my rear main was bad and leaking. Upon further inspection I saw leakage on the top of the bellhousing at the back of the engine. Then, I thought it was the valve cover gasket. Anyway, I go to loosen up the bolts to the valve cover to find out they are finger loose. Torqued the valve cover back down (carefully because those bolts snap easy) and the leak stopped.

Start there.

Jerry Bransford Clean that bell housing off with brake cleaner and shop towel & see what happens after you stop the drip at the oil pan drain plug. That old oil on the bell housing looks like it could have just flown off the oil pan drain plug which is obviously dripping. Did you not notice your oil pan's drain plug is dripping?

Noticed what may be leakage on bell housing.

While changing oil we noticed this. What do you guys think? Freaking out a bit.
