SOURCE: pinion seal leaking
check your rear diff vent if pluged clean it out and clean up the pinion seal.sometimes if the leak is caused by pluged vent and has not been leaking long once vent is clean sometimes the leak will stop.there is not a specific torque amount because it is rotational torque(how hard to turn pinion).there is a crush sleve on the pinion and if torqued too tight or too loose brg preload will be wrong and brg damage could result.mark and remove drive shaft.remove rear wheels,brakes,axles.so when turning pinion you dont have any drag from brakes or axles.mark the position of the yoke on the pinion.remove yoke,replace seal,reinstall yoke be sure to replace pinion nut.tighten nut until it takes the exact same amount of force to turn pinion as before taking original pinion nut off.hope this helps.

SOURCE: transmission oil leaking at main
standard TQF transmission oil if an auto ,EP90 if a manual gearbox ,do not attempt to change seals yourself as this is extremely complicated ,try putting in a tin of transmission leak stopper if an auto as the front seal on the gearbox/torque converter is the main culprit ,but it could also be the torque converter itself where the vanes are welded in although this is a rare occurance ,now only place that sell the seals is the honda dealer and they dont sell them only a complete exchange gearbox so if you do remove the gearbox to change this seal then go to a auto factor where they will measure the old seal and find you a new one the same size ,i cannot get auto gearbox spàres hardly at all here in spain for any make of car .
