Default Rear Differntial Leak?

Anyone had a similar experience?

Noticed I had fluid seepage from my rear diff. Mabey the pinion seal is going? Bought the truck about 3 weeks ago so its hard to tell. I have not noticed any leaking or dripping fluid under my truck on the driveway and I always part in the same spot. I know that the vehical sat for about a month before I bought it and am wondering if mabey the seals can contract allowing seepage in these spots?

Default Re: Rear Differntial & tranny slight leak?

Mine is leaking too. From what I've been told all you have to do is change the gasket. Drain the differential, remove the cap and make sure the old gasket is all removed as well. Insert the new gasket and re-attach the cap. Then you re-fill according to specs.
