the '02 started dripping onto the xover 3 years years ago. it was a disintegrating case/frame vent tube. the '00 I just got into my life is doing the same. It's SO obviously a rotten vent tube, again, onto the xover. The '02 also leaked from the timing sensor. None of the leaks made it to the floor.

Ive had several. Timing cover gasket, front crank seal, timing sensor (a few times), crank vent tube, rear drive seal (fingers crossed the big outside one will hold) and the one I haven’t got yet is the rear transmission not a gasket housing.

 

None marked territory...

 

I don’t count the valve covers either.

None, other than the day the crankcase ventilation line split in two while rolling down the freeway.  Then it was like a crop duster mated with the Exxon Valdez.

This does not include potential fork and shock leaks or leaking from the steering damper . . .

 

Oh, and that pesky O-ring on the head bolt under the rocker shaft that keeps staining my head fins. :bbblll:

Gosh, I guess I should clarify that my Sport hasn't had all of those leaks. That was sort of a compendium.

 

Admittedly, my Sport may be over-represented in the leak threads . . . :blush:
