This afternoon as i was mixing some cement for the house renovations my family. I have been working on it all this past weekend. My father came up to me and told me I'm leaking oil from the jeep. I thought it was no biggie till I actually noticed it. The leak is coming from my transmission/t-case area. The skid plate is covered in oil. i took some pictures tomorrow after i get home from school i'll drop the skid and see what i can clean up and hopefully find out why it is leaking. since i got the tj in 2002 with 42,xxx miles I've had trouble going to reverse. I would have to shift in to 3rd & 4th before going in to Reverse. Sometimes it would just go right in to gear without effort. Can anyone give me a prognosis of my leak?

here are the pictures

Looks like a Tranny rebuild, the shifting problem and leak are probably not related, my BA-10 :no: (which is getting ready to be removed forever) :wave: leaks out of both input and output shaft seals, oil leak is JUST like yours...shifting problem may be the syncronizer. :2:

I looked again it looks like its between the tranny and t-case where they meet. There is no external damage that is visual. When I drop the skid tonight I wount know. I'm going to degrease it and scrub so when it drips again I can find a trail. Sound good?

If it is the rear seal it will start to 'seep' right away (without driving) on the seam between the T-case/Tranny, as my Tranny/T-case has a 'pocket' where the 2 meet and it collected gear oil, so when I separated the 2 the other day a GOOD amount of gear oil spilled out. Double check your Tranny vent line, mine slides over the nipple on the tranny near the back of the case, make sure that has not pulled off somehow.
