Pulled my air box off yesterday and found oil pooling under the shift arm on top of the trans. Did not see any obvious places where it is coming from. Any hints on where I might look to see the source?

Thanks.

Crap.

Thanks much. Hope this is covered under the warranty I just extended.
Depends on the dealer. The two that I took it told me it was "normal" . Resealed it myself, no leak...imagine that...

How did you seal? Just pull the tower, clean, and RTV it?
Ya, pretty straight forward: 4 bolts, pull the tower off (be careful, you will have to twist halfway up), scrape off the old sealant, clean the sealing surfaces, reseal with gasket maker (I used what the the manual says: Motorcraft TA-16), and reinstall.
