You do NOT need to pull out the motor. My Mechanic was able to slide the Oil pan out after the transmission was off. He did this the same time as he replaced my clutch and rear main seal. this is not a $1,100 repair as most Garages lead you to think..
Oil is leaking from what looks like the rear main but I had that replaced when I replaced the clutch and slave cylinder, leading me to believe its coming from the rear of the oil pan gasket near the tranny. It leaks while running but not when its shut off.
It was just seepage for the last year, no real drip but then I moved to a higher elevation and the daily commute up the hill seems to have exacerbated it into a drip. It's hitting the exhaust pipe, so the truck smells like burning oil. Spots all over the driveway.
