Axle seal is leaking, but upon inspection, double check that it is ONLY the seal and not because of a bad wheel bearing or a ridge worn in the axle itself from the seal and/or bearing

SOURCE: rear wheel seal leaking

Remember SAFETY FIRST. Jack up the right rear wheel, support the axle with a jack stand, remove the wheel, the brake drum, the banjo cover or differential cover. Allow the gear oil to drain out into you drain pan, carefully and slowly spin the ring gear (watch out not to pinch your fingers) look for a small bolt that is restraining the king pin, remove the bolt and then carefully slide the pin out !(don't spin the axles or ring gear while the pin is out) if you do the bushings and spider gers will move out of their places. After the pin is out then go over to the exposed axle and push it in until it stops. Go back over to the pumpkin and look inside, for a "U" shaped washer it will be on the end of the axle. Remove it from the axle. Now you can remove the axle and replace the wheel seal. Either rent a seal installing tool or carefully use a block of wood and evenly install the seal. If you kink or damage the new seal remove it and try it again. When you put everything back together put a little thread lock on the bolt for the king pin. dont over tighten it, could snap it. Let me know if I can help any more.

SOURCE: Right rear axle leaking gear oil

If it is the seal on the bearing, its not easy it is very time consuming, but this can also be the veiw if you have a brake cyl leak which can be caused by the brakes being exessevely worn in the rear end. I would take it to a shop and have them check it out,

SOURCE: Rear engine oil leak....

Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

SOURCE: RIGHT REAR LEAKING GEAR OIL ON WHEEL

Make sure that it is actually gear oil and not brake fluid from a leaking wheel cylinder first. If it is gear oil then you will have to have the rear axle removed and the seal replaced if that is where it is leaking from.

Why would I have oil in where my flywheel is and


Give more information. What car, what year model? If there is oil where the flywheel is, chances are you have a leaking rear main bearing oil seal or leaking gear box primary shaft oil seal. Coil packs? They should be there to make the car go.

I have grease coming out of my rear wheel housing what could be the problem. 2007 chevy silverado 2500


It shouldn't have grease are you sure it's not gear oil? And if it is leaking gear oil that means the seal at the axle hub is bad and needs to be replaced. Sounds bad but not to hard to replace, The seal is only a couple of dollars if you do it yourself! Make sure that it is not your brake caliper or wheel cylinder leaking.

There is a loud howling noise coming from the rear end of my 2006 Chevy equinox. At first I though it was the tread on my new tires but it's definitely getting louder and isolated to only the rear end....


If it's a All Wheel Drive then it could be a gear oil leak that has caused a bearing in the drive train to fail. Just adding gear oil won't fix the problem, but may limit the damage until it's repaired.
If it's a Front Wheel Drive, then you may have a Wheel Hub Bearing Assembly failing. This usually has a ABS [ Anti-Lock Brake ] light associated with it.
Either is dangerous and should be checked ASAP.

Rear axle seal leaking how difficult would this be to fix


Not that difficult, raise and support the rear of the truck and remove the wheels. Might as well replace both sides so you know you have new seals, remove the differential cover and drain the fluid. Once differential is opened and cleaned , remove the axle "C" clip that hold the axle in place and slide the axle out. Once the axle is out remove the wheel seal and clean around the area. This would be a good time to replace the wheel bearing too since you have access to them and there not that expensive. Install the new bearing and seal, note make sure you oiled the bearing and seal before installing it back and take care when installing the axle back in and "C: clip. Use RTV silicon gasket maker to seal the differential cover and wheels back on and lower. If your lazy like i am, you can drain the differential fluid and replace it with a 50/50 mix with gear oil and Lucas engine oil additives. That may stop the leak and get you a few more miles. You gear oil is 75W-90 and the capacity is 2.6 liters and 3.6 liters if you have the 11.50 Ring gear. Good luck and hope this helps.
