I have a 95 xj6 and on the front of the enging there's a triangle plate held on by 3 bolt and it leaking oil when I removed the plate it looks like there was bolt there but the head broke off should I be concerned? And what is causing it to leak is there a seal there or somthing


thanks in advance

First thing tomorrow I'll take a better pic but on a different forum someone told me that it was the intermediate shaft and that there's a seal for it but know one know the procedure to change it and I've been doing a lot of research with no success. Do you know anything about this?

P.S. Its starting to squeak from that area so I don't really drive it as much

Is that a 6cyl 3.6?

You can get an auto stethescope (harbor freight $5) or make your own or use some tube/wand to listen for the position/area of squeak. Probably not related to leak? You could pull cover off and look to see if seal is there or cover just needs some silicone sealer to stop leaking.
