You need a bolt for the black box.
It does like to leak at its oring.

Also being on the exhaust normally means the trans is leaking and the axle is sping oil around.


Clean everything up really good. Then throw some baby powder on then motor. Once it leaks it should make a clear trail to the source

Thanks for the reply. I checked the transmission today and cleaned off all the oil. Forsure its not coming from the transmission. Definitely a small leak from the Black Box but not enough to cover the exhaust. Should I try replacing the Oil Pan Gasket? Thats where most of the oil seems to accumulate.

You can replace the pan gasket. Just remember leaks dont go up.
Its still possible the axle is spinning the oil and throwing it once it keaks tho.

Black box leaks do go upward thanks to the aero turbulence under the car. It will even get to the starter area on the trans. Check PCV valve as well.
