Does it squirt out when the brakes are applied? ZF axle? Brake seals are leaking oil into the differental housing. Only repair is to reseal the brakes in the axle!

There is a pretty steady drip coming out of the port when the machine is running.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Usually it will leak profusely when the brakes are applied if the brake seals are bad. But if the axle housing is making oil, it will be leaking brake seals!

This leaks anytime the motor is running. This port is on top of the axle housing. It has a round dome on top of the port.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, that is the axle vent. Your brake seals are leaking hydraulic fluid into the axle housing.
