Transmission Bell Housing Leak?

Hello everyone,

Today in the morning I noticed some decent amount oil on the ground, so I decided lift the car and noticed the transmission bell housing is leaking oil. Now, naturally I’m really concerned as I’m thinking it could be the gasket and I believe isn’t an easy and is a costly thing to fix. I have a 2015 GT with manual transmission with 44k miles. Has anyone else had this problem before? Please see pictures attached and any advice would be appreciated.

Your oil leak could have several sources: rear seal of intake manifold (starting from the top and running down the bell housing), valve cover gasket (rear edge), rear crankshaft seal, rear pan gasket/seal or front transmission seal. It seems early to have any of these leaks (unless there's been some engine/trans work done). The pan, crank or trans seal leaks could also contaminate your clutch disk. Time to clean the rear engine area, run the car and see if there are any leaks at the rear of the intake or valve covers. Also a cleaning along the pan to verify that the pan gasket isn't the leak source (and blowing back to the bell housing). Good hunting.
