05 Oil Leak ?

I just bought an 05 F-350 DRW King ranch I love the truck but it has 500 miles on it and it's leeking at the rear main seal. I am getting dime to quarter sized drops coming out of the bell housing. I can't believe it. I have been reading the posts on this sight an I thought the rear main problem had beed fixed. Ths sticker on the door has a build date of 04/05.I just traded an 03 duramax 3/4 ton. It ran great no problems but I like Ford. I may have made a 52,300.00 dollar mistake.

Are those dime/quarter size drops dripping on ground or just hangin on bottom of BH? As mentioned, mine also early on, only had the hangin drip. Never saw it hit the ground. Still did it @ 14K mi. Could it have been ass. lube, apparently not.

Recently in under warr. first time. Dye/light test indicated RMS was leaking. New one installed. Long story/short, had some minor issues on my "to do" list before 3/36 expired. Point is, if not a real dripper, you might wanna wait awhile longer before going in. You might get recall for other repairs? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif Did you make mistake, only time will tell?

Good luck...OT
