Leaking oil coming from...
:confused: Ok so i found oil leaking coming from were the oil pan and transmission meet. My jeep is only a year old with 12,400 miles is this normal. I took it to the dealer and they said that it is a 2 day job, the good thing is that my jeep is new and i dont have to pay anything out of pocket. Here are some pics, can anyone tell me why this would happen to a year old jeep and what can cause this problem thank you.

My guess is that it is a rear main seal leak... Eventually they all leak like that, just takes about 10 times that long if you are lucky!!!:D Good that you caught it now, before you are out of warranty!

dude you may have saw my post a while back about a leak and i THOUGHT it was coming from the tranny but it was actually coming from right where yours is!!! i just thought it was from the tranny because the oil ran down to the bottom of the tranny and dripped from there and i thought it was actually leaking from the tranny but it had just ran down from there. dang mines an 06 and its already doin it. i thought it was because i went through water. maybe not! i guess i should just get it checked under warranty

Bigjeep, i think you should take it in. I took it in they told me it was the seal where the tranmission and oil pan meet, so yeah take it in. I have to take mine on november 6th its going to take like 2 days think the guy said.
