Leaking rear differential seals on 4WD models

if after a long trip you notice that the rear differential has oil leaking out of the drive shaft or the half shafts seals, don't panic. Clean up the entire differential with brake dry clean or electrical contact cleaner spray, be generous around the drive shaft lip as it can hold some oil. Then take a look on the back cover plate for a valve that should move a bit, if it doesn't, remove the valve with a 13mm wrench and give it a good spraying with the brake dry cleaner in both ends and exercising the valve until it clears the blockage gunk. The valve is not shown in the Ford Maint manual, but it is in the Mazda Tribute maint manuals and parts catalogs. The valve is a one way pressure relief , lets air out, prevents air and water from getting in. Check the oil after re-installing the valve. The oil should be ok and just level with the bottom of the inspection plug which just uses a 3/8" drive ratchet to remove. Drive a couple of hours and if nothing is leaking, you're good to go.

The leak seems to be coming from the shaft holding the pulley

Presuming you are talking about an oil leak from behind a pulley? All shafts as they exit the engine, have an oil seal fitted in the case and supply a tight seal to the shaft, if oil is leaking the seal is worn and needs replacing. depending on what the pulley is driving (cam belt), it could be a big job.

I have a 2003 Freightliner Century class that is losing oil daily without obvious leaks.

Most likely oil is going past the turbo and out the exhaust.

My ford focus is leaking oil think it might be gearbox oil,

Is the oil you see reasonably clean or is it black. The gearbox oil would be cleaner than the engine oil. Gearbox leaks would most likely come from one of the following:-
  1. Drive shafts
  2. Gear change lever inputs,
  3. Speedo cable
  4. Reverse light switch
  5. Drain plug
  6. Input shaft seal (inside the bell housing).
Pig a piece of paper under the car when you park it at night to give you an idea where the drip is located and inspect the area above that position

I have a oil leak, it comes from where my left

hi this sounds like the oil seal that is in the gearbox/transmission is worn, which is oddly called drive shaft transmission oil seal..there is no special name for it, unless you have the correct tools for the job this can be a bit of a long job, mostly disconnecting the ball joints from the hub there are special tools to do that, but once you have the drive shaft out, its a simple case of pulling the old one out and tapping in the new one, make sure you have a bucket or something to catch the oil in when the drive shaft comes out, it makes allot of mess..its probably about a 2 to 3 hour job for an armature to do with the right tools...the seal is probably about 10 to 15 bucks may be cheaper...hope this helps

Oil leak

The Drive Shaft?! If it is the Drive Shaft it is an Easy Fix. You will need to Remove the Drive Shaft and Replace the Seal that is at the Very Rear of the Tranny. Check the Tranny Fluid. Tranny fluid should be your Leak. The Fluid is Red Right?
