Recent service? May have had a bubble down low.

Now the level is high after running it..........pull the lower plug and check for water. Oil floats.

Check out the prop shaft, just a thought.

Got a friend that is also losing oil in his drive. While on the lift one day I noticed oil seaping out of the right side of the drive where it mates to the bell housing. Figured it was the O-ring for the resevoir. Pulled the drive and replaced the o-ring. Still losing oil, any ideas?

The prop shaft can loose oil and it is never seen unless on the trailer of a while. If in the water it may never show.

Pinion shaft seal has crept out of the carrier and burned up on the u-joint knuckle. Time for new seal with the upgraded carrier. The oil is sitting in the bellows.
