no, its a common issue i have read on here many times. also we just had a guy on here that had a plug on the back of the belt tensioner with a hole in it so have a look at that too. yes its possible that the front cover is leaking. better to find the leak first if you can. you would need to take these things off to get to the front cover anyways.
