Re: oil leak questions

probably grease is what your seeing and it could be a cv boot damaged. drive it til it pops, then replace the axle!

Re: oil leak questions

only things i could think of is the wind blowing oil on there from
1 your rear main seal
2 leaking down from "cam cap"
3 leaking down from distributor O ring
4 a very bad shape VC gasket

if its not any of those get some of that ultraviolet dye that you put in your oil and trace the leak that way
