    So the other day I took a freind out for a ride in my DD aka D15B coupe. We started to smell an oil smell, I said its normal once in awhile to smell that, but it got wicked strong so we pulled over... I saw oil dripping, me having just done an oil change that day checkd over the drain plug and filter right there on the spot... Come to find out its the Trany. I drove it the whole 5-6 miles home not a problem at all... It seems to ether be leaking from inside the flywheel housing or around the left CV shaft... at High RPM's it spits it out like a garden house, any ideas anyone?

    Thanks

    Careful, if it's coming out by the flywheel it could be rear main. Don't want to mis diagnose one of those, though they commonly are.

    sounds like a rear main to me as well, if the oil looks used and dark its gonna be from the engine. if the oil looks clear and clean it will be from the tranny.
