2017, 55k miles, purchased new in 2018. Still under warranty. Noticed in June when I changed my oil it seemed there might be a leak, but I attributed it to me maybe spilling while filling. Crawled under for oil change yesterday and the underside was coated in oil. None dripping onto pavement yet though. Anyone got any ideas what my issue is? I’ll be taking it to a dealer in any event, but wondered if anyone here might be able to clue me in on what to expect before I go.

Guess it’s time to return tcm and ecm to stock… If I ignored the issue do these leaks tend to get a lot worse in a hurry? Hate to give up the truck to the dealer during deer season…

Mine started as a seep and then one day there were 4-5 inch puddles and progressively got worse. I suppose you could keep an eye on the dipstick and keep a gallon of oil with you just in case.

Requesting mechanic put dye in the oil to help establish/verify where leak is coming from helps your cause while it's under warranty.
