I have a 2004 jeep grand cheroke lorado and just had the right rear axel replaced and it is now leaking again... after only two months... is this a reacuring problem?


You should not have to keep doing this repair. I suggest that you return to the mechanic and have him redo the job correctly.

There is more than just the seal, the axle needs to be undamaged at the seal surface, and the bearing has to hold the axle true. Any movement will allow a leak right away.

Bad rear axle bearing and seal on a 2000 jeep grand


the bearing does not always have to be really bad for the seal to fail. Centrifugal force will throw axle grease outward where it gets on the rotor. That can make it feel like the rotor is out of round. If grease got on the brake pads I'd replace them and perhaps even the rotor. As far as the caliper being frozen, possible....check it out when you have it apart. You can have more than one shoe untied at the same time. Not always, but it can happen.
When replacing the seal make sure you put some grease on the lip before putting the axle back in. by doing that it won't fail from dry running before the diff lube reaches it.

I have a rear end leak at the hose from my rear axle to a relief valve near my gas cap. What should I do?


Is it actually coming out of the breather? (that a breather valve, not a relief valve) Anyway, if oil is getting way up there you may want check the oil level in the rear end. Is it way overfull, is there water in the oil? If it's leaking out of the hose where it attaches to the axel then hose must be split and the hose needs to be replaced. Good Luck!!

I beleive the seal where the crankshaft enters the front axel housing is leaking fluid, How much will it cost to replace the seal?


If you can do it yourself just the price of the seal ask at your local dealer. If you need someone to do it for you then only they can put a price on it. They won't charge you for an estimate.
