Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'd most likely need to see the area that the fluid is leaking from to be able to determine the source. It sounds as if you could be describing an axle seal if it's on the side.

Are you able to upload a picture showing the seal you're referring to?

Can you post the VIN?
