Answer 1
If its coming from with in the bell housing you may be correct. You may need to wash down the engine to pinpoint the leak. A garage may look for a leak using dye in the oil, or using a smoke machine oil generate smoke through the dipstick tube and plugging of any engine vents to see where the smoke leaks out. -
