I noticed some oil seepage coming from behind the crank pulley, got the car in the air, and found a greenish grease seeping along with the oil (thinking maybe whatever was used to lubricate the front main seal when it was first installed?). It's not causing a noticeable loss of oil at all, so maybe it's not bad. Yet. I searched, and no one has had the same symptoms, so is this a front main? Or something else possibly related to the oil pan since it's so close?
Also, to keep everything in one thread, I'm having 2 odd noises from the transmission, however, it is still functioning fine. (I have an ACT Extreme clutch with an FM lightweight flywheel.) Sometimes it makes a squeaking sound that is noticeable whenever the clutch pedal is not being pushed in, in gear and moving, or out of gear and sitting still. As soon as any pressure is placed on the pedal, as light as small foot pressure, it stops. I don't drive with my foot resting on the pedal or with my hand on the stick. One of the techs at work suggested it might be that the ball in the fork may have become dry and needs to be lubricated appropriately. He's not our transmission tech, so he couldn't explain it any more clearly than that. It left me confused, all I know is that it's near the slave, which, by the way, is working properly. Is there something to adjust, or is there something else I need to be looking for?
Also, there is a tick that shows up every now and again, and I was able to get it on video. The noise is coming from where I am pointing the camera, but as with all car noises, it could be elsewhere. It's basically somewhere inside the front of the housing.
Thanks in advance!
