    Oil getting all over my t maxx

    Recently I have been getting oil all over my t maxx and I don't know where it is coming from. It is a thick black lookin oil and dust sticks to it. I cant tell where its coming from. I have the 3.3 maxx, not sure which model, but its the one that the body has the hood scoop looking deal. Is there even anything that has oil in it on this thing?

    It may be coming from my differertial. Do they have oil in them? Not from exhaust though, its a lot thicker than the blow by when you run a little rich. Seems to be coming from front center blowing back on tranny and a arms. Real heavy on my drive shafts.

    Yes. Older T-Maxxs have grease, the newer ones have silicone oil. What model do you have? Photos of the truck would help.
