Fluid leak

For a few months now I've noticed a wet spot when I leave truck parked for a few days. I finally got under truck and pretty sure it's leaking from the hose or maybe through two bolts on pictures, it looks clean in pictures because I wiped it clean. It has a cable coming out going to rear, maybe emergency break? What is the hose attached to and if I remove the two bolts, will fluid come out? I tried back tracking the hose but didn't have enough time. 05 titan 4x4. Thanks for the help.

Re: Fluid leak

That is just a Ebrake cable and mount. No fluid will come out when you remove the bolts. The Fluid looks like it coming from the transmission pinion seal for the drive shaft. When it spins it flings fluid all over the place.

Re: Fluid leak

Ok, I was thinking fluid was running down hose from someplace. Is this DIY job? Will it get worse if not fixed?

Thanks Titanrunner04

Re: Fluid leak

Its not a hard job at all. You have to remove the drive shaft and you will see the pinion seal where the drive shaft slides in. The seal is cheap and and easy to replace once the shaft is removed. While you have the shaft out inspect or take it to a drive line shop to have it looked also. Some shops will drill a tiny hole in the back of slip yoke to allow for drive shaft plunge, this will help the seal last longer also. I don't really know if there is any true value to this. Mainly just have them check the u-joints and carrier bearing if it is a crew cab. They should also balance it. You can also just look at it your self and make the judgement call, but if you have high miles the drive shaft will probably need what I described above.

Re: Fluid leak

Ok, sound good and yes it's a crew and high miles. I'll tackle it as soon as I can.

Thanks again.
