Hey, is this a Joke?
Not to plug any 'chian' repair shops, but most shops will look at it for free, to see if the fluid that is leaking is "brake fluid" or "rear-end" oil ! 
` . . .come-on, guy, get to a shop ! Your takin' you life in your hands. . . Dah !

The leaking could be from your brake line, can you tell what color the fluid is and the texture? is is slippery or feels more like water? If it is brake fluid leaking that means you have a broke or busted line or a caliper/brake cylinder leaking which needs to be fixed quickly.

I have alot of grinding out of the rearend


Sounds like bearing or bearing are gone out. Jack up vehicle, check fluid level. Grab one wheel and spin it, listening for noise from wheel bearing area and the rear end. If no noise, spin other wheel listening for noise from that wheels bearing.

If it's a heavy grinding you are hearing, it's rear end.

I should have said what kind of leak I have brake fluid leaking from the rear passinger tire


you mean from "near" your rear passenger tire. Tires don't have brake fluid in them...!
Take a look at the inner part where the wheel mounts to the axle. There is a brake line there, so look to see if it looks like the brake fluid is coming from it, (and that you verify the brake fluid resevoir under the hood is low) or that it might be from the brake drum area. If it's from the brake drum, you probably have a "wheel cylinder" leaking, and need to remove the wheel and drum to verify this.

How do I grease the rear axle of my 01 chevy blazer (2wd) until I can get the leaking seal replaced?


Replace the seal forthwith. leaking grease will wreck your brakes and that is dangerous.

Typically rear ends take 90 weight oil, it goes in through a plug near the center of the rear end, fill to bottom of the hole, with rear end level. You can get a suction gun to **** some fluid and pump into the rear end.

I have a knocking sound when I am driving my 99 GMC jimmy on the rear drivr side. But there is also a strong smelling liquid leaking into the tire well while driving, what may be the problem and can I fix...


The only liquids it could be are brake fluid and gear oil from your rear end. If there is knocking too, i would guess it to be a wheel bearing and seal are gone. The only way to find out is to pull the wheel and inspect it. As far as fixing it yourself, i don't know what you can do, but if the seal is gone, you have to take the cover off your rear end, and pull the axle.

Strange wobble noise


your bearings. thats what it sounds like to me. if it almost sounds like you have a big rock just jumbling around in your tire thats most likely your bearings. its pricey but its worth it to get it fixed. if thats not it check into your transfer case and your shocks

Put in brake fluid but cannot tell if there is a leak or not


After you put the fluid in the brakes start your blazer keep it in park or in nutral with the parking brake on and then push as hard as you can on the brake peddle using the steering wheel as leverage.This should pop any brake line that is leaking a little bit but not enough to pop any good lines.If the peddle slowly goes to the floor check undernieth the vehicle for any signs of leaking.If no signs of leaking look under the hood where the brake master cylinder is and check for any leaking around the mounting surface.If no leaks there check inside the vehicle where the brake peddle goes threw to the master cylinder for leaks on the inside,this does happen from time to time.
