Hello every one,
It's been a while since I have been on here. About to move to Seattle and brought the car for inspection and the previous leaking axle seal was fixed as the reman axle was not round and it leaks as soon as the new seals were replaced. Any way, with the axle seal fixed, now I still have differential leaks. It's very little but the mechanic seem to think it's from the seals within the differential box. For the VE models, the differential and tranny are two seperate boxes. I searched every where and no DIY guide or videos to do this. Does that mean this repair is rare or it just does not happen?
Another problem he says was the power steering pump is leaking a little also. Nothing major. The fluid level has not change since I last checked and I check very often. I wonder if the chain tensioner tiny leak is making its way down to the pump.
Never the less, the mechanic seems to think the repairs are not essential for the car to safely drive from SoCal to Seattle.
Now I like a nice no leak car like my 90 Accord. I would like to know if it's easy that I could replace the differential box seals myself? The power steering pump, is it rebuildable? Or for Toyotas, you just replace the pump? Any guide on replacing the pump? The car has AC so tighter to get down there. I am used to my Accord with every thing on top and the pump is rebuildable. Also, it seems the Honda pumps seem to last longer than the Toyota pumps as I have spend more money replacing the Toyota pumps than any Hondas. I work more on Hondas.
I know Fisher always come to the rescue.
Thanks for any input and help.
