2016 Gas 9000 miles engine oil leak. The leak is right where the engine and transmission are bolted together. Has anyone ever had this problem? Engine main seal leak ?

Also, on SLOW acceleration the transmission feels like its chattering and not quite engaging the clutch all the way so the car shakes and shudders forward in higher gears. This NEVER happens on hard acceleration. Engine is running fine.

I m thinking if the main seal is leaking, oil has gotten on the clutch and is causing a problem.

No other leaks anywhere. Oil filter not leaking.

Thoughts?

Sounds like oil is getting on your clutch pack , that would cause that shudder . I would suspect , yes a seal is compromised , sounds like a close inspection is on order , possible between the trans and engine . Ouch .
