Driveshaft leak at U Joint?

Driveshaft leak at U Joint?

Postby zzeigler82 [OP] » Jul 26 2012, 3:41am

Hey,
Crawled under my 2002 silverado 1500 today and it looked like there might be transmission fluid leaking from around the U joint. No fluid on the ground but is sprayed on the bottom of my truck in a perfect line. Seems to be leaking out while the drive shaft is spinning. What is the problem? Any help would be great thanks!

Sounds like the output shaft seal of the transmission is in need of replacement. It's a fairly easy fix.
