Need some advise on this one
Wife's 2003 Envoy 4x4, 17 000 km, started dropping oil on the garage floor
some days ago.
As soon as I noticed it I dived under to discover that it is leaking from
the left front axle seal, as it comes out of front differential.. I checked
the other (right side), no leak there, but I noticed that both left and
right axles have little play in there, as they come out of the differential.
Is this normal? I told wife to take it to the dealer.
Wife took the vehicle to the dealer for (warranty), but few days later, at
that time it stopped leaking, so they did not do anything, said it is just
sweating and it is normal. This was most reputable GM dealer in town.
Yesterday I checked the level in the front diff, it was bit low, so I topped
it up, adding maybe 1/4 of a liter.
Will check if seal is leaking tonight.
I do not know what to make out of this, I wish I had a time to take it to he
How much play should be there in front axles, the part of it which sits in
Any thoughts on this?
