Axle seal

There is a plug about halfway up in the transaxle, fill till lube runs out. You will need a new seal in the unit eventually, but if leakage is not real bad you can just add the oil recommended by the manufacturer. Hope this helps, plese post solved on So I get credit for a solved problem if it does. If not, check back and give me more info.

1994 buick roadmaster, oil leaking out of right rear axle, checked brake fluid is full, could it be differential oil leak @ end of axle??

If what you see leaking is very oily and does not evaporate, likely it is an axle seal. If there are no leaks in the brake system, that's the only thing back there that can leak. If the axle bearing is going away, it can damage the seal so make sure you look for small shiny metal flakes behind the seal when you replace it or you will be doing the job again very soon. Can't remember...that IS rear wheel drive right?
