Oil Leak dead center

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 Boxster with 138,000 miles. I recently started dropping a 3" oil spot after the engine cools. The leak is dead center right at the tranny engine area. It appears to be seping from a small bolt hole(Pictured). Is this the RMS? Should I discontinue driving the car or no big deal for a while? I will be needing a clutch soon. Any other items need attending? DIY? I am confortable with most Boxster repairs. Water pump, AOS, Starter etc..

Sorry. I forgot the Pic. photo.jpg

This picture shows what is inside the connection between the transmission housing and the engine housing.

What is not shown, because it was removed, is the flywheel and clutch assembly which would attach to the center round disk with holes.

I am in no way a mechanic but if oil is coming from this flanged area it is possibly the RMS or IMS, which you have to remove the clutch to gain access too. For your sake I hope it is the RMS.

In this photo my IMS bearing has suffered a failure and that is why the bolt is not where it should be. That is now rectified.

If there is a part or section you want a photo of I probably have it, let me know.
