Axle Seal Question

My axle seal is leaking a little bit on my passenger side where it hooks into the tranny. I only noticed it because it looked a little damp/wet around it when I was under the car and a little fluid was sprayed above it. Sense I have the automatic sealed transmission, I can't check the fluid level. The car never leaves any fluid on the ground, no matter the incline and the transmission works as smooth as glass. Do you guys think its worth the $100 to have the seal fixed?

well I there is a way to check the fluid level on all transmissions but they dont let the customer know new cars. Like the cavalier theres a plug on the top of the transmission. what they do is fill up the car removing all the fluid and then re adding the spec amount to it. What i would do is completely clean the area where the fluid is located at. I mean completely spotless go back in about a month and compare what it looks like. if you have about the same spot coverage on your car/seal then you know thats what your loosing per month. Just remember that $100 is expensive to the point of how much you will need to keep checking the car.

Sealer transmissions suck. I THINK some have a sight glass that you can see the fluid level through, but I'm not sure. A friend of mine was changing his oil in a rush one day in his 08 Tundra and accidentally drained the tranny fluid....we had to get a frickin PUMP to pump the fluid into the transmission because the fill plug was on TOP the transmission in a place where you couldn't just pour the frickin fluid in...

Anyway...what I'm trying to say is that $100 isn't that bad to just get your problem fixed versus going through more than $100 worth of headache if it ever comes down to you having to fill it, etc.
