Question about 2003 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

I have a 2003 4x4 Durango a red fluid is leaking from the top of the rear axel bell housing, the ABS light is on, I know the ABS operates off of hydrolic oil, a line runs across the top of the axel, would this be the rear ABS line that is leaking?

    Transmission Fluid is RED

    Brake Fluid is Light Brown.

    Your rear Differential seal is leaking.
    ABS light is a seperate issue.
    Most likely a cracked reluctor ring, or faulty sensor.

A red fluid is most likly trans fluid. the abs has nothing to do with that, the abs light could just be a faulty sensor, besides, brake fluid is clear or brakish. now, check to see where the leak is coming from. what i dont understand is brakelines run over the rear diff on most vehicles. see if the leak is coming from somewhere else.

my reconmendation is to take engine brite, which can be bought at any autoparts store, spray area of suspected leak, then rinse with a hose or powerwasher. wait for it to dry and see if the leak becomes more clear, how thick would you estimate the lines to be? 1/4 inch?? 1/8 inch. clean it and find out where the leak is coming from

good chance you have a leak in your break line. easy way to check is have someone press break while you look under the car. best position is just behind wheel look for fluid to spray out you will see a break line from the axel area to your wheel gl

Asb and parking brake dash lights are on


that light is not for the parking brake it is telling you that your truck has a brake problem. With the ABS light on that system is disabled so you are braking with a vehicle that doesn't have it.
1. check fluid low? y check pads and rotors low fluid indicates worn parts, or leaks.
2. have abs codes checked wheel sensors could have failed and rarely the ABS module. Wheel sensors are located near the wheels or in the rear differential

Uncle put new brake pads on vehicle (he worked on front and back brakes) and now the speedometer doesn't work, the abs light is on, check engine light, and the break light is on. what could have happened ....


Check for disconnected ABS sensors. The front sensors in the front are located next to the axle shafts. The rear sensor is located on the rear differential housing itself on top, in the middle. The ABS is monitored by the computer for performance. The ABS kicks on when the vehicle comes from a certain speed to a dead stop, keeping the wheels from locking up. That could be the reason for the speedometer not working. Or it could be a bad speed sensor. Both can also trigger the check engine light because it is monitored by the computer. The brake light usually comes on due to low fluid level. It can trigger the light, but not be low enough to impact brake performance. I hope this helps.

How do I check the fluid in the bell housing on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


The fluid that is inside of your torque converter, which is located in the bell housing is your transmission fluid.. If your tranny fluid level is good, then the fluid inside of your torque converter is good...Now if you are leaking fluid from that area, it could be either your front seal that is inside the bell housing, or your rear main oil seal......
