    My truck started leaking oil at a weird spot. It is by the right front axel. I haven't had it fixed yet.

    The smell of gear lube became noticeable and was taken to our local dealer where they replaced the right front axle seal. The same problem occurred again at 61000 miles and again the seal was replaced. It has now started smelling again at 62500 miles.
    The original dealer is out of business and I'm trying to locate a shop to again repair/replace the seal.

    Massive leak on the right front differential. Most of the undercarriage of the car was coated with gear oil after the leak.
