    Has to be leaking from the seal around your drive shaft then.

    Do you mean it's not leaking from your "drive shaft", filler plug, or gasket?

The only place you did not mention is the pinion seal (at the yoke where the driveshaft connects) Any leak from a differential should be fairly obvious...clean everything off well and drive it, You should see seepage somewhere. Any grease on the wheels or new fluid where you cleaned will tell you where to look. If it is at the pinion seal, If you haven't done this before, don't...you can disturb the adjustment inside the gear case and damage the gears.

My 96 jeep grand cherokee laredo over flow tank won't hold any water. The radiator was staying pretty full until now. It's leaking water can't find where it be?


Pull the dip stick for the oil , its probably over full ! The reason is that you have a bad head gasket ! So water / coolant are mixed with the oil !

Fluid leakage


Leak at the front is likely from the c/v joint, Either the strap is loose or the boot is split. Replacement is nearly the same exact job as replacing the axle itself and generally the price of a rebuilt or scrapyard axle is worth the $.
Leak at the rear sounds like a pinion seal. Though it is easy to do that job, if you don't do it correctly you will change the pinion gear depth and that can cause the differential to fail. I recommend you get a haynes or chilton manual to do this work or have a competent shop do it for you.
If the rear leak isn't terrible, often you can add lucas additive to the diff lube and just keep an eye on it so it doesn't run low. (check level at the plug in the rear cover).
Any problems or other questions, just ask!!

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 am changing the whole rear end on my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Replacing it with the same type I'm removing. It looks pretty simple. Is there anything I need to watch for or do?


Make sure the driveshaft is wired up.All brake lines are capped to stop air getting in.Replace the diff oil and make sure it has the friction modifier in it or that you add it to the oil.(200ml).Check for axle seal leaks.Its also a very good time to replace the universal joint at the rear.If you don't,at least relube the uni.DON,T let the needle bearing caps come apart. if the car is on a hoist,allow at least 3 hours to do the job and time it so if you do need to get some parts,the parts shops are open(bearings,seals etc.)Hope this helps

OIl leak in 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo


valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.

rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn

if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.
