Fill gearbox with oil
The reason for the oiling of the clutch disc of a car with a manual transmission may be a leak in the oil seal of the input shaft of the gearbox or the rear oil seal of the crankshaft of the engine.
Engine and transmission oils have different smells.
Having a certain skill, you can determine by smell which oil seal is defective: the input shaft oil seal or the crankshaft rear oil seal.
There is another way to determine the type of oil.
Drop the oil into the water poured into the vessel in a thin layer (possibly in a puddle).
The gear oil will spread over the entire surface of the water in the form of an iridescent film, and the engine oil will remain in the form of a drop similar to a lentil grain.
To replace the input shaft oil seal, the gearbox must be disassembled.
This procedure requires certain skills, so if you need to replace the input shaft seal, contact a specialized service.
