 John Deere 330 oil leak

Hey,

I just purchased a 330 with 1100 hours. She runs like a dream but on my initial inspection I noticed the oil was a on the high level on the dipstick. I just cut for about 30 min and all was well let it cool down and checked back in an hour to a some oil leaking. Before I loose my mind and think I bought a lemon could it be simple. I noticed a valve on the top of the case near the filler with a drain tube almost where I noticed the leak. Im hoping that is the problem. Thanks Jake.

First like your user name.

Don't know your model but was the tractor service when you bought it, or have you changed the fluids? If not really recommend you do so as you have no idea when it was. Would do full service.

As to oil leaking assume you mean engine oil. Do you mean it is over full on the dipstick? If so would drain it to the full level. Try to be certain you are not seeing any sign or coolant or diesel fuel in the engine oil.

Even if there is a oil leak does not mean you have a lemon. Could be a very simple fix. First thing may be clean the tractor very good so you can see where it is coming from.

A small oil-leak isn't necessarily a big deal. Check for it by looking for a drip on the ground and a lower level on the dipstick after use -- but the level is always lower when cold than when hot.

Oil leak seems to be gone. I drained about 3/4 of a quart from the engine oil, cut for about a half hour and no leak. Glad it was as simple as that. Thanks for the advice.
