Question about 1999 Toyota 4Runner
Thanks for your advice, you could not be more right. I took it to the shop this evening. The LR axle seal that they replaced less than 6 months ago is now leaking. I may still have the problem with the e-brake that you spoke of as it does seem to be hard to release on a hill. I even put the transmission into neutral prior to applying the e-brake but it still seems to release hard (the brake drums themselves, not the lever)
I had trouble with the same LR axle seal. Changed two of these and then discovered that the problem was a plugged axle vent cap that was plugged due to rust. The leak occurred at the LR axle seal as it was the weak point in the system. Easy to replace vent cap, and cheap ($12 CAN).
