Question about 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan
Our 2001 Dodge Caravan seems to be leaking oil where the left front drive shaft goes in to the box (transfer case I think). The oil looks reddish like transmission fluid. Does this sound right? Is this typically caused by a bad seal? Thanks
Yes it's a bad seal and most likely the side bearing to the trans axle is bad too. Once the bearing has play, it vibrates and causes the oil to leak though the seal. Note: if one side went bad the other side is soon to follow since they have the same amount of miles on them. Might as well change both side. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep an eye on the transmission fluid level, don't want to burn out the transmission.
