More than likely it's either break fluid or axel lube. Axel lube will smell really strong and if it's leaking out it will build up on the breaks and make the rear tire skid under heavy breaking. It is also very thick. Break fluid is thin and has almost no smell.

I have a 2006 jeep wrangler x. I've recently noticed that there is brake fluid leaking out of the brake drum on the drivers side rear tire. Is there any common problems with that for the make and model?


It's not a Jeep or model specific problem. It would seem to be that you have a bad wheel cylinder that has started leaking. When that happens the brake fluid coats everything on the inside of the drum making that brake work poorly or not at all. Definitely something to get fixed sooner rather than later.

is the fluid coming from the tire or from the backing plate of the brakes if it is from the backing plate of the brakes then if you have drum brakes its safe to say your wheel cylinder is leaking

The parking brake light on the dash of my blazer


Check first the brake fluid level. This is found under the hood on the drivers side. Sometimes when the fluid gets low it will cause the light to blink. If the fluid is fine then have you Back brakes checked. If you have worn brakes this also can cause the light to blink or if you have drum brakes the wheel cylinder could be leaking fluid. You can look under the back of the vehicle on both sides of the insides of the rear tires and if you see alot of wet stuff on the inside of the rear wheels then you have a wheel cylinder that is leaking and could cause you to not have any rear brakes if it blows out. If you can do back brakes you can buy everything cheaper at any Advance or Autozone Store. I always buy new wheel cylinders instead of rebuilding them. Much cheaper. But do both rear wheels. Don't just do one. Hope this helps,

Smoking from my drivers rear tire and alot of grinding??? what could be my problem


Sounds like a brake problem and could have a wheel cylinder leaking onto the hot brakes or a axle seal leaking onto the brakes. Look on the inside of the tire and see if there is any wet fluid on the tire .

Brake fluid leaking alot and now noticed fluid from rear tires


if your car has rear drum then the wheel cylinders could be leaking and in need of replacement. If it has rear disc brakes then it could be leaking fluid where the brake hose goes into the caliper or the brake hose my be worn or have a hole in it. Or it could be a a brake line. You should have it checked because you don't want air getting into the braking system.

Loss of break fluid, wet driver side rear


Check to see if the brake line is leaking. If it’s not , it is probably the slave cylinder. Remove the wheel, take the brake drum off and you should see the cylinder. If it is a disk brake. You have the inside brake pad plunge seal leaking. Sorry I don’t remember if the brakes are disk or drum, and I don’t have my books close. Either way it is a relatively easy fix. Parts are readily available at the auto parts store.
