The only place oil can come from inside the bell-housing is the rear main seal. Replace it.

And yes, capitalize the first word in a sentence, it really makes stuff hard to read, especially in a a huge-*** paragraph.

I honestly had a horrible time reading that. It hurt.

Please try and use a period, or at least a comma so I can tell what words go together.

Might want to look into miata.net as well since they might be more understanding.
