    Not necessarily if you have a axle leak the transmission fluid would be under the car and may not even drip on the garage floor

    If leak was at output shaft seal where axle goes into transmission- yes you should have seen leak on garage floor but If leak was coming from boot areas, whereas you had a tear in axle boot- you wouldn't see anything on floor you'd just see alot of grease back behind axle.

    Mine leaks and it's because of worn bearings inside. It's a slow leak though, no drips, just damp dirt on the tranny pan.
