Under the truck today and noticed oil all around my filter AGAIN ... its like that everytime i change the filter... I clean it off and it comes back ... cant find that leak... That leak isnt as bad as the other side (passanger) Im not 100% but it looks like its leaking where the axle bolt to the tranny side... it smells like ATF is there a seal that goes in there that might be bad ? if so whats the seal called and or am I looking in the wrong spot ??? need a lil help ASAP im leaving to go camping this Friday AM and need to kinda fix it by tomarrow night. :help

Had a Oil Leak from the Oil Filter Housing. The TOP Allen socket plug was leaking. Removed it and put some pipe putty and good to go. Did all the plugs and bolts on the Housing. No more leaks

Also look at your Power Steering lines, they also leak at the hard line crimp.

I looked under the truck and it doesn't look like the tranny cooler lines are leaking. I don't see power steering lines anywhere near there. I'm at a loss. Any other ideas?

I would degrease everything good. And clean all the oil off every thing. Will help find the leaks. Look at the the lines from the Hydro Boost to the power steering pump, and to the Steering box to the Hydro boost. Those lines leak at were the hard line joins the rubber line , the crimps leak.

I checked all the crimp lines on the tranny cooler and none of those are leaking. I'm going to blast everything under there tomorrow with purple power. Then drive it a few mile and see if I can narrow it down. Thank you guys for helping me out. Ill keep posted updates
