Red face Fixing engine oil leaking.

Now I trying to fixing my stangs engine oil leaking.

Then I found a part which made with rubber is cracked.

So, next step is simple as just replace it.

But the problem here is I have no idea what it is orcalled?

It placed on metal block under the car and the block place on behind the oil pan when you appraoch to it from the bumper.

If there is some one who have any idea about this please let me know.

I attached pics of it.

If that is on the bellhousing, it is just a dust plug. I assume by the last picture that it is on the back side of the engine, between the engine and the transmission? If so, you have something else leaking that is coming out of that area. The most likely would be the rear main seal, a seal that goes at the back of the crank in front of the flywheel. If it is engine oil that is leaking, that's most likely it. If you have tranny fluid, it's coming from the front of the transmission. Do you have a manual or auto tranny?

+1 The pictures indicate to me some sort of dust plug for the transmission. I know I had a similar piece on my torque convertor (auto tranny). It could also be a seal for a manual tranny, as Leon suggested. Let us know what kind of transmission you have.

Thumbs up Thank you for those comments

Yes, it is dust plug.

I should check this thread before I went to autoshop by bicycle today.

I drove almost 10 miles in order to figure out what it is. Lol.

The mechanic said that it is dust cover, since I have auto transmission, it seems to be a trasmission fluid leaking too. What a sad...

Anyhow, I appreciate you folks' advising.

If the oil is red its transmission fluid, if it is brown or black its motor oil.
