    Default Oil leak

    My 2013 RT has developed an oil leak on the right side of the engine.
    Went down there to check and it seems to be coming off of what it looks to me like the water pump.
    Can you tell by these pictures if I'm right?
    I'm taking it to the shop tomorrow but I'd like to be prepared so any advise will be greatly appreciated

    It does look like it. If it is the water pump oil seal. It will be coming out the leak indicator hole mark as 1 in the picture you attached. I would clean it. Then go for a drive and see where it is coming from for sure. If it is the water pump seal. You can't just replace the seal. The drive shaft and both seals need to be replaced as a set.

    Default Oil leaks.....

    Oil leaks are hard to pin point once it has run out and gotten wind blown around the engine. Back in the day we would clean the engine or area in question and spray it with Arid extra dry that dries into a white powder. Start the engine and wait for the trail ....
