The term is transmission output shaft seal,and if the fluid leak is comming from there all that needs to be done is pull the driveshaft and replace the seal,2 things to be aware of during installation.First coat the metal sleve with a high temp.silicone sealant,a very thin coat.Second some replacement seals hve pressure weep hole in te rubber boot part,just be sure it is clocked in at he 12oclock possion in other words install with the hole strait up.

Sounds like an oil seal needs to be replaced and the other part is called a yoke.

Leak coming from transfer case. It leaks right were the rear drive live goes into the transfer case. Replaced the seal once. Was leak free for about a week, and now it is worse than before. Possible...


the trans case is not under a pressure, the fluid is a free flow oiler that gets slung around by chain and gears. are you sure it was the right seal ? DIdnt damage it on install !!? did you over fill the case ? Check rear spline on case and make sure it is not sloppy movement back and forth, up and down. if it is then seal is getting pushed all over and oil seaps past. but you would have a vibration while driving that you would notice. is ther a groove on rear slip yoke that is riding on seal groove. after reading your question again, are you talking about the drive shaft going into the transfercase or the main trans/ transfercase mating area? What is a rear drive live? rear driveline!! as in driveshaft?

While checking my transfer case seal, I noticed some play in the transfer case when I push up on the drive shaft. Should the transfer case be ridgid or is a little play up and down ok?


Hi, there is a small amount of up, and down play, as the driveshaft has to work back, and forth, on the splined slip joint in this particular area. There is a bushing in the rear of the transfer case as well. Between these two things, the play is normal. May seem a bit too much, but normal. Good luck...Coop

Transmission fluid leaking back, 1988 Ford Bronco


your output seal on the tranny or input seal on your transfer case is bad. you have to pull your transfer case to tell. this is a pretty straight forward job. block wheels. put transfer case in neutral. drop front and rear drive lines.diconnect transfer case shift linkage. there is a short commponent connecting the trans to the transfer case. the bolt on either end face each other. remove the bolts to the transmission. the transfer case is heavier than it looks, i suggest getting help. pull back on the transfer case until it will drop down. it will pull out a bit because of the trans output shaft. replace what will probibly turn out to be the tranny output shaft seal and reassemble in reverse order.

Automatic transmission leaks on my 2000 Rodeo 4wheel drive Any help? Please


If you have never serviced the transmission, it just may be time to have the transmission fluid and filter to be replaced if the transmission fluid is leaking from the transmission pan. If it's leaking from the rear of the transmission where the drive shaft goes in to, then it's the rear seal from the transfer case and the seal needs to be replaced and the transfer case topped off with fluid. If the fluid is leaking from the front of the transmission where the engine connects to the transmission than it's a good chance that it's the torque converter or front pump main seal. The other place that it could be leaking from is the transmission oil lines from the transmission to the cool at the radiator. Please let me know if it's leaks worst when the engine is running or only when your parked for a few hours. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Our 2001 Dodge Caravan seems to be leaking oil around drive shaft


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.
