Default Leak Near The Y-Pipe

So I was looking under my car this morning and found this leak by the y-pipe. I was hoping you all could help me figure out what it is. Its kind of a big area so i don't exactly know where its coming out of yet. But i was hoping you all could help me so i know what to to. It doesn't smell of anything so i'm not sure what it could be.

What I would recommend is to pick up a few cans of brake clean and completely clean all the oil....go for a drive and inspect the area. This will let you pinpoint exact source of the leak.

Default Re: Leak Near The Y-Pipe

I had a tranny leak as well and had it resealed. My rack and pinion also was leaking. I also recommend what Danski6MT said about getting brake cleaner to completely clean all the oil. I used engine cleaner when i did. But I wouldn't drive right away after you clean it because your car might start to smoke up because its burning the liquid off.

Good luck man hope its nothing crazy and don't let a mechanic try and rip you off.

Mine was warranty work and if I remember correctly it was like 400.00 to get it done.

Might be the rear oil seal, but if you have auto and the fluid is red, axle seal.
