Question about 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer Ext
I have a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer LS ext and my left rear axle seal is leaking slightly. I mean slightly. How soon should I fix this puppy ie do I need to do it now or can I wait a month or two?
An axle seal leak especially if its a minor leak can be monitored for about a month or so, as long as the gear oil isn't affecting the brake system. If any grease/oil gets on the brake pads the oils can contaminate them and cause the vehicle not to stop properly. A major precaution to insure you can hold off on the repair is to have someone be sure the fluid isn't over full in the rear end housing, over filling will cause the seals to leak, if it is over filled have it drained down slightly with a syphon pump.
Have the axle bearings checked for wear on both sides as well.

As long as it doesn't get on the brakes you're ok
