    island808 [OP] Me l've got brains.

    '10 6speed 4x4 access cab
    Went and changed my oil for the first time. Noticed wet inspection plate on bell housing.
    The oil pan gasket IS wet in places, it COULD be the oil pan blowing back.. but sure smells like a rear main. Just too wet right at the inspection hole. I see a few others on here... but at least they got to 30-90k before they had one.

    Get to see just how good service is down there. I usually do almost everything myself even if it's under warranty.. but not taking out the engine and transmission when its paid for already.

    Things always give me a sour taste for a vehicle. Hopefully this one will go away so I don't feel like selling it in 3 months.

    Anyway.. hopefully its just the oil pan..
