The seals may be worn and allowing the gear lube to escape. You should be able to get new seals for this tiller and if not...most people I know run it the way it is and keep checking the level and adding fluid.

Why does it continue to leak?

Elisa where ? are you working at, EXACTLY?
sounds like it's wheel /axle bearing, is it?
or the pinion bearing????? there are many bearings in any axle.

id bet $100 you didnt just pop in a new rear crankshaft bearing
as other poster guessed.

my guess is the rear axle seal leaked, GL5 lube
and soaked the brakes and all? or the front pinion?
the job requires, all Gear lube, be cleaning off all parts there.
after the job ends, or it will leak RESIDUAL GL5 (imagine a kitchen sponge?)
which axle , the 198RBI or the 226RBA??

this seal., must i guess?
so if this seal leaks, its because the bearing is bad, and beat the seal to deathh.
#1 cause.
when it leaks goes all over.
the rear has discs but has TopHAT, emrg. brake shoes
and those will be wrecked, (soaked in GL5 lube and leak after
and the shoes are wrecked too.) so did you clean all that and replace all that. (i can guess what you did or touched,)

How to remove a rear end axle and change a rear wheel seal?

Remove the rear diff cover (use a pan under there's full of gear lube).Rotate the diff till you can see the pin that holds the spider gears in place. At one end of the pin, you will find either a roll pin or small bolt that retains it. Either drive the pin out or un bolt it (depends on what you have), then remove the pin. (careful when rotating carrier after it's out or, the spider gears will fall out. After it's out, DO NOT rotate the carrier or the same thing can happen. Dont turn the driveshaft or axle). Push the axle in and the "c" retainer on the axle will fall out. If not, help it a bit so it does. You can then remove the axle and access the seal.
After the seal is out, check to make sure there isn't any metal debris behind it. That indicates that not only the seal is bad but the bearing as well. Keep the new seal square with the axle tube so it goes in straight. Put some lube on the seal so it doesn't self destruct before lube reaches it. Remainder of the job is the reverse of removal. Don't forget to re-fill the diff before using it.

I have a 1994 Ford Taurus and the right rear wheel seems to lock up every now and then. It acts like it is skidding and the wheel is not turning. I ve been having problem with the wheel for some time,...

Check the lining and inside of the drum for brake fluid leaking from the wheel cylinder or gear lube leaking from the axle seal. Either one could cause the condition you describe.

Rear end rumbles 94 towncar i have replaced main seal and wheel seal still making same sound

Hello, You may have damaged a bearing if you discovered the seals were leaking it may have dropped the axle lube too low to protect the bearings. When you were removing the wheel seal, you must have exposed the rear Emergency brakes on the 1 side you replaced the wheel seal on. You should have observed the condition of the part. The other wheel may have the Emergency brake dragging and making the noise you continue to hear.

A lot of times the lining from the E brakes will separate and fall into the drum/rotor. Then it will jam or grind until it is dust. While you worked on the differential was the driveshaft inspected for bad u-joints? Check the drive shaft joints while you are under the car.

You still may have a bad bearing on the opposite wheel you worked on. You may need to put the car on a lift and have a helper put it in gear. Be careful for long hair, loose clothes, etc and you can just take it easy on the speed you run it at.

On my 2003 tahao 4.8L 4x4...the pumpkin on the rearend is leaking fluid from the seal and do not know if its synthetic oil or plaiin gear oil. but i have no owners manuel to find type or weight of oil

If you have a positraction unit (both rear wheels turn in the same direction when turned off the ground) You should use synthetic. Otherwise you can use standard 75/90 or 75/140 lube. If it's leaking you may try adding lucas sealer to slow the leak (read instructions for percentage of additive and product application)

How much in ny to replace front end differential, horrible whaling hum from front end. did local shop cause this when seals were done last year, i heard they have to torque it properly or this damage will...

only if seals leaked out the gear lube.
you need to check the fluid level first,
and make sure your not hearing a front wheel bearing going bad,does it make the noise only in four wheel drive?
before you start worrying about price of front differential you need to locate for sure what is causing it.

Ford Explorer leaking rear differential fluid

Time to drain and replace the fluid. The gear lube does not last long in these rear differentials. Use Valvoline 85-140 weight semi-synthetic. It will slow or even stop the leak and prevent future wear. Only replace the seals if the leak gets bad. Hint: the fill plug is 3/8" socket wrench, the drain is 3/4" socket wrench. Attach a short length of vinyl tubing to bottle to fill the differential.
