Is it a standard tranny or auto? The CV joints usually make an awful racket before they go, the bearings and seals go out, and it will leak oil, But I don't think it would be gear oil in an automatic, I might be wrong, been a while since I messed with CV joints, don't have any cars with front drive anymore. The auto tranny fluid is red, and thin, gear oil is black and thick, like maple syrup. In case you didn't know, The CV joints are an easy fix for most shops, they used to do it for about $150, I have no idea what they charge now. Check it out. Hope this helps.
there is no such thing as transmission oil but if its atf fuild red in color replace carrier seal (but more likey its a torn cv boot and your seeing the grease ) in this case remove and imspect cv joint repack bearings and install new cv boot
You don't. You have Cv joints connected to the transmission because you have no rear end differential. The only thing you have to check is tire pressure especially the front because they must have even pressure & the transmission fluid. I assume it's automatic. Good luck!
All depends on where it's leaking from. If it's leaking from the transmission pan, then it's going to be a bad transmission pan gasket. If it's leaking from the transmission cooler line or connections from the transmission to the radiator, replace the line or the connections or just the O-rings in the connections. If it's leaking from the transmission housing where the engine and transmission mates, then it may be the from pump or Torque Converter. The leak could be coming from the CV joint inner shaft where it connects to the transmission. Good luck and keep am eye on your transmission oil level, low transmission fluid will cause transmission failure.
a pry bar works the best. First take the bolt out that holds the lower ball joint and the strut together then take the cv bolt out, (impact gun works best) then put the pry bar where the cv joint goes into the transmission,just keep on working with it till it pops out. Be careful sometimes it leaks transmission fluid out. to install push the cv joint in as much as you can then put the nut on and with a hammer or mall it the nut till it pops in and secures then take the nut off and slide it back through the hub and then connect the hub and lower ball joint together. then tighten bolt to specs and repeat for other side.
The out put shaft bearing may have gone bad and the transmission oil is leaking out and running down the CV joint on the out side. The other thing to is check the CV Joint, if it's the inside joint. It will not make any clicking noise, just the out side joint where the wheel hub is and when your making a turns is when it makes the clicking noise. The best thing to do is to jack the car up and make sure you use stands to secure it to make sure the car does not comedown on you. Inspect the CV joint, look for excessive play and oil leak from the transmission if any. Good luck and keep me posted, Oh and don't for get to check your transmission fluid level.
