Good day and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you clean the engine bay and underneath with an engine degreaser. Once cleaned try to observe where it's coming. Can be a worn out gasket on the top of the engine that goes down the axle.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: Right-Front Intermediate Axle Shaft Bearing

I am assuming this is an all wheel drive. That being the case you probably have an axle CV joint going out. If you hear noise when making a sharp left or right turn and accelerating that would more than likely be the problem. And, yes this is a serviceable part. Easy to replace if you have the proper tools to accomplish the task. Good luck.

If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.

SOURCE: rear axle seal leak 2001 ford escape xlt

First check if the vent cap is plugged, to do that find the T shaped object on the housing spin the top of the tee if it does not move freely then pull it off and clean it. If it's leaking out of the front seal it's the drive line seal is leaking and will have to remove the drive line put Emergency brake on and block wheels and loosen 24MM nut to get to the seal you have to pop the seal off with a screw driver and you have to replace the crush bearing when you do this. However recommend you leave that to a professional or purchase a www.alldatadiy.com susbscription for your car so you know how to set up the bearings if it is needed, you will also have to have a tork wrench to tork the nut down. You will a new Nut for the pintal shaft that comes out of the front of the axle as well the nut is nut reusable once you remove it. Another note you have to have air impact to get the nut off or a torch t heat it just enoungh to get it off but warning fuel tank is right there so if your all thumbs don't mess with it. If it's not leaking from the front seal and is leaking from the back side of the differential then you must drain the oil and replace the gasket on the rear plate, this job is not to difficult but you mus be sue you put silicone on the cover and gasket and put silicone on the bolts as you put them in because if not you will get bolt leakage, these also require a tork wrench. the front seal nut and crush bearing will cost $45.00 the rear will cost $15.00 for the silicone and gasket. And warning if the differtal is leaking from the seal it is quite possible that the bearings will need to be replaced or set up again and this takes experince or it could cost you $750.00 to rebuild the differital. hope this helps.

SOURCE: CV joint noise

this sounds like a normal condition. sorry i cant give a real great technical explanation why, but it is. are you jacking up one side of the vehicle only? you will find that if both wheels are off the ground or if one is still on the ground, it will act completely different. just the way the final drive is set up.

How much should it cost me to have the left front axle seal replaced?


The premium replacement part for this is about $22.00. I would expect labor to be around 3 hours estimated in their magic book of hours. You can expect this to cost somewhere around 300.00 to 350.00. If you are handy at all and have tools you can do this for a few swear words and about 3 to 4 hours for about 100.00. I say 100.00 because there will be minor things that come up besides the part itself.

How extensive is replacing a cluthc on a 2005 ford Escape front wheel drive 2.3l 4cyl?


Any clutch job reqires you to remove the transmission,as I would assume you know.

Not a driveway job.

Any work involving a transaxle,drive axles,clutches,really needs an indoor lift.

Why in 2010 would you own a clutch?
