Q: Leaking on

asked by on

Leaking out of axle jolting noises when driving

My car has 122000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. There are a few possibilities such as you may have a bad axle bearing or the bearing itself is seizing. This in turn will damage the axle and the seal. You will need to have the axle bearing and axle with the seal repaired. If you find you are needing further assistance with this, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or place of business to diagnose the leaking and make needed repairs.
