Transfer Case

Is this coming from my transfer case?


I saw it yesterday, it was starting not that much though I don't have any drips in my garage floor. Just want to know what exactly is???

Sorry to say but yes. Looks like my TC back in '08 when nissan fixed the seals under warranty. http://www.nissanmurano.org/forums/a...ak-pix-014.jpg The right axle seal is one of them - part # 38342 - 06R01 ---- Transfer case poll

Could also be a combination leak of TC and CVT. Check your TC and CVT fluid level immedietely! If everything is running fine you can probably just fix the seals but labor will cost just as much - ballpark 1500. Atleast you don't have to shell out for a new TC. This is when an extended warranty pays for itself. Good luck.

Oh dear! My extended warranty is over, is there a DIY for this. Although I have a good mechanic to deal with major jobs hope it will lessen my expenses.

Check your power steering fluid level, maybe it is from the power steering hose. It is a known problem also.

T'was im thinking also. Changed the power steering hose 2months ago, I hope it was from that leak, I cleaned up everything so far no leaking. I'll see in the next few weeks cross fingers. Thanks for the help.

Definitely ask Santa for it to be residue from the PS hose. You don't want the alternative.

I went back and check for some leaks, it was there again and now it's wet, I don't want to guess but I want we're it exactly coming from, it was a tight space and can't see through at all, I've check my CVT Fluid it was normal gauge.

The TC fluid is different from the CVT fluid. If your CVT fluid level is maintaining at the max then its very important to check the TC fluid level asap. TC fluid capacity is very little (.31L or 1/3 quart gear oil) a small leak can easily get to a dangerous level fast. PSF is red. Touch the new leak put it in white paper and see under the lite for color ID. I would follow the right axle all the way inward to your TC and see if you can spot the leak from that end. That is a common spot-- right axle seal leak. Atleast top of the fluid if you are not ready to fix the leak. Good luck.

It was not on the right axle, the leak is on the driver side, as you can see on my image

I'll take a snap again once I got home the color of the fluid is lighter now.

I had both leaks - left and right axle seals. To give you a pix of a leak coming from the driver side/ right axle seal look at jaaks pix here..... failed CVT. This is easily seen from the left wheel well with wheel turned to the right - the big round CVT housing connected to the axle is sprayed with oil. If your car looks like this pix then..... However, like my pix on my previous post, yours looks much like my TC leak which partly comes from the right axle seal. The TC sits at the center part of the engine bay.

Below is a pix when I replaced the driver side axle seal. < 2 years after the TC leak fix under warranty. That CVT housing, axle and mostly everything behind it was all covered with cvt oil and dirt like jaaks pix.

Nitely do you have step by step on replacing both seals, I think I could do that, unless there's a special tools to pull it out.

This was my post after I did the job 1 1/2 years ago. 2006 AWD left front CV axle help You should get a copy of the FSM. Just take your time in riding the seal back to the housing. Use a hammer. Good luck.

The right side goes to the TC which I think is your problem base on your pix. However, maybe there is more to it. When nissan fixed my TC leak they replaced 2 seals. I know one of them was the right axle seal the other is inside the TC. So I am not sure if just changing the axle seal will fix your issue. I did not do this TC repair myself since it was still under warranty. I know that they pulled it out. That maybe the reason for the other seal. If you don't pull out the TC then its possible you don't need the other seal. Good luck.
