I think it is engine oil since it is brown, and not transmission fluid. Very minor leak right at the circular ring type area where the engine meets the transmission. I am assuming that this is not really a "wet" interface. So is the leak from the "rear engine seal" or the "crankshaft seal"? Do those seals mean one and the same thing? Or are there two different seals in that area?

- When starting, engine not coming up to idle revs. I have to give it little gas.
- Car overheated. I am replacing the coolant recovery tank. Is it prudent to replace the thermostat assembly at the same time?

- Looking for an estimate the cost of repairing the 5F3A code ( the transfer case actuator) where the triad of 4 x 4, brake and ABS are lit and have been for a month and now the service engine soon light is on!
