Well, after all that, it should not leak a drop. if the yoke is new, then either the seal is bad/damaged or the bushing has too much play, allowing the yoke to "wobble" and the seal is unable to contain the oil. another thing to verify is that the vent is open and not plugged.

Gear oil leaking from rear of drive shaft


You need to replace the seal for the pinion. ou need to remove the drive shaft off the pinion yoke thene you will find a big nut in the center of the yoke that has to be removed but before you remove the nut check to see if there is any kind of play on the yoke if there is play the pinion bearing will have to be replaced if that is the case your better off having a mechanic do the job. If there is no play remove the nut pull the yoke off replace the seal and reinstall in reverse order.

Verso gearbox leaking oil


There is a seal in the gearbox and this has been damaged so oil is leaking past it out of the gearbox. You will have to carefully replace this seal, to do this you need to take the gearbox out of the car, put it on a bench and carefully remove the old seal and press in a new one.

Oil leaking between gearbox and driveshaft


sounds like transmission rear seal. Any good shop can replace fairly inexpensively. Unless you have tools, just undo driveshaft at rear-end, yoke slides out of transmission. With a seal puller, pops out, tap in new one with mallard and reinstall driveshaft.

There is an oil seal on the gearbox/transaxle input shaft. If this has failed it will leak oil on to the clutch.It might be able to be replaced by just removing the gearbox again to access the seal. Most likely though is, the gearbox will need to be opened up to replace it.

Leaking oil at spline shaft slip yoke at rear of transmission


there is a long bush type bearing in this tunnel just at the end were the seal fits in it can were out and let the prop shaft flap about, this in turn rips the seal to bits,,,also the yoke has a polished part on the end that go's over the spline into the end of the gear box tunnel the seal can were a groov into this part, and no amount of new seals will stop it leaking them as the new seal runs in this worn out groov, again ripping it to bits,,,test the long bush type bearing by holding the prop shaft yoke and pushing it up and to the side, if it moves about replace the bush in the end of the tunnel as well,, its a push in fit! with a big hammer!!
if the yoke has a groov in it you need a new prop as all prop shafts are balanced so you can just fit a new yoke it could throw the car up in the air when your driving it down the free way,,,,by shaking it apart
i hope this is of help to you

It sounds like something is slipping when you stop and start the truck. I jacked it up and saw transmission fluid leaking from the rear at the yoke


Sounds like your driveshaft u joints are worn out and need replacement and a bad extension housing seal.

Front seal on rear end is leaking how hard is


Not hard to do. You need to remove the drive shaft, to get to the nut that holds the rear yoke from the differential. Once the rear yoke has been removed, you can replace the O ring seal from the differential by using a screw driver to pry out the old seal. Try not to damage it to much so you can use it to help tap in the new seal. Once the seal is out place the new seal in place by hand and then place the old old seal on it and tap in the new seal with a small hammer. Take care to ensure that the new seal goes in straight and place some grease on the seal before you place the yoke back in to place. Tighten up the yoke nut and you may want to replace the U joint at this time too since it's off the truck. Once everything it back together, check the differential oil level and top off. Good luck and hope this helps, you can get the parts at Auto Zone and they can also give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. The hardest part that i can see you having is the removal of the yoke nut, the job takes about an hour to do so if your going to have a garage to the job the most would be 1.5 hours but should take them about 30 min to do.
