Q: Q: Cv axles

asked by on

I changed out both axles, and my question is, a little bit of oil leaked as pulled the axles out, should I be concerned ? What type of oil is it ??

My car has 109 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. This oil is actually transmission fluid and it is normal to be leaked out while changing them. Just be sure to check the transmission fluid after changing these to ensure not too much has leaked out and that you have the proper amount of fluid in the transmission.
