Fluid leak around starter

2002 GMC Sierra 1500 w/6cyl has a fluid leak around and from the starter. Started to intermittently clunk when turning over today. Sounds like drive gear teeth may be missing. I am going to drop the started to inspect but have concern for the oil, any ideas?

It may be a rear crank seal, or oil from the torque converter (automatic) or the input seal on the transmission. Check your fluid levels in your engine and trans. A visual inspection will help also. you could remove the inspection panel on the bottom of the trans bell housing. As for the clunk I would be leaning towards more of a starter issue for that.

Clunk when coming to a stop


That clunking noise you get it whilst you are braking or just as you are coming. If it is whilst on breaking,check your rear brakes. if is whilst coming check for any suspension shocks,bushes.

Have you checked the Solenoid? That would be why the starter would keep engaging, but not start. You might also want to check the Voltage Regulator, and the sensors. Here is a page of images that might help you with identification.

There are only two problems with electrical circuits. Too much amperage or too little amperage.We have to determine what you have.
An excellent test is to put your test meter red lead on the positive battery post and the black lead on the negative battery post. Crank the engine and record the voltage. Then place the red meter lead on the starter's battery terminal and the black lead on the negative battery post. Again crank the engine and record the voltage. The two voltages should be with in one half volt of each other. If the voltage difference is greater that one half volt, there is a resistance in the circuit, somewhere. I would expect the voltage to drop a volt or two, max
If the voltage dosent drop, there is high resistance resulting in low amperage. If the voltage drops too low then there is low resistance resulting in high amperage.
High resistance=dirty terminals
Low resistance = shorted wire, slow turning cranking motor maybe caused by bad starter, bad battery or hard to turn engine. ( engine bad, alternator or power steering pump bad, a/c pump bad, etc)
Can use head light for test. Turn on lights and note the brightness. Crank engine. If while cranking, the lights stay bright= high resistance.
If lights go dim = low resistance.

Do you have proper Trans Fluid level. When you never change the fluid every couple years you end up with these issues. Dirty valve body in trans,bad solenoid pack or internal damage.

If you have that much play back there, first check rear universal . If play is present in pinion with shaft removed, you will not be happy with what you find inside the cover.1/2 turn of lash in any gearset is far beyond the scope of any adjustment. Rebuilding is an exact science and must be done with special tools and lots of experience.
With any luck the u joint is bad...
