The only fluid that can be leaking from the rear axle on a front wheel drive would be brake fluid. You probably have a leaking wheel cylinder. It may only be a matter of time before you do start to lose your stopping capability. However, if it is a wheel cylinder they are only held in by two bolts and a hose. You will probably twist the hose off trying to remove it from the cylinder. You will have to buy new straight piece of brake line with ends and bend it into a shape that fits and is not interfered with by moving suspension parts. But is possible to fix cheaply if you do the work. Bleeding the system instructions are on the master cylinder. Start at the back and work your way up. My 93 is still on the road. I am guessing that rust will be what finishes it off . You will need generic brake line, dot brake fluid, wheel cylinder, and new brake shoes(do both sides).

Rear axel leaking ford 1997 f 250

If it's leaking then it needs a gasket put on or RTV GASKET MAKER put on the cover or it's just simply cracked some how if it's the cover then take a drop pan drain the remaining fluid and clean both surfaces very good possibly spotless then apply the RTV high torque grey sealant gasket maker very thick around the edge and center where the bolts are and re apply the cover but make sure it lines up and is very clean inside also if it's a slip posi rear end you will need a bottle of friction conditioner and 3 1/2 bottles of motor craft differentail fluid as recommended by ford and remove the filler plug after the RTV is dry and refill the rear axel and if it remains to leak either you sealed the cover wrong or bad plug otherwise the axel is cracked and needs to be replaced

Hi i have a 1994 dodge caravan it is leaking oil can this be fix im worry that we would have to save money for a van for my kids thanks

The Chrysler minivan products all had leaking problems. I have had 5 or 6 different Dodge or Plymouth minivans from 88 to 99. How bad is it. The most common thing is Valve cover leaks. Front and rear seals in the engine leak as well as the oil pan gasket. If its leaking a little bit at a time open the hood and look at the front and rear of the engine. Do you see grease and oil that has gone down the sides of the engine? Do you see a lot of grease on the engine with some clean streaks going through it. You may be able to see where its leaking from. If you know someone that knows what their doing have them change the leaky gasket/s. If not you can probably have it repaired for less than buying another van unless other things are seriously wrong with the van.
Hope this helps... Dale

How do i add fluid to the differential

Remove the threaded cap, I recall you can use a 1/2 ratchet w/o a socket on it). It is located in the center of the axel towards the top facing the rear of the van.

Fill with the proper fluid (check your manual, be careful if you have limited slip) until you can touch the fluid with your finger. The easiest way to do this is get the fluid with a pump build into the bottle.

Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 4x4 Durango a red fluid is leaking from the top of the rear axel bell housing, the ABS light is on, I know the ABS operates off of hydrolic oil, a line runs across the top of the axel, would...

a red fluid is most likly trans fluid. the abs has nothing to do with that, the abs light could just be a faulty sensor, besides, brake fluid is clear or brakish. now, check to see where the leak is coming from. what i dont understand is brakelines run over the rear diff on most vehicles. see if the leak is coming from somewhere else.

my reconmendation is to take engine brite, which can be bought at any autoparts store, spray area of suspected leak, then rinse with a hose or powerwasher. wait for it to dry and see if the leak becomes more clear, how thick would you estimate the lines to be? 1/4 inch?? 1/8 inch. clean it and find out where the leak is coming from

usually not to expensive and yes it is difficult if you just bought the car and never worked on it , i always go to a mechanics the first time. just check the fluid often dont run it low, until you get it fixed. its just a matter of removing the bolts that hold the plate on and then changing/flushing the trans fluid, filter. if you never done it i wouldnt attempt it alone .
