    did we figure out a place to send homie some $$$? im broke af but i got you. you smoke or vape?
    also, you are going to need a master overhaul kit for that tranny... IMO not worth your time and money. if i were you, i would part out that vehicle and then scrap it.
    Hope to help <3, Cheers!

    Yeah im still guessing cv joint
    Part probably under 100
    Approximately 1.5 hrs to put it in
    If you stare at the sky a bunch

    The leak if it was pre existing could just be a pan gasket

    But then there's the tranny, not the good kind

    Or the axle might have whopper jawed (technical term) the seal where the other end goes into the tranny. You just have to make sure the trans case isn't cracked. How far away from home is it?

    Was it leaking trans fluid before the axle shaft thing?

    Yeah, i also wonder if its just the transaxle leaking from the cv joint area.
    Hard to say from here. Lol

    Meta, get up under the tranny, stick your finger in the hole and see if there's any fluid. If there is, what color is it?

    That's not bad. Just a bad axle. That's what's popping and probably where the leak is at. If you were close enough it would be a simple fix. Axles are less than a 100 bucks a piece and a couple hours to put in.

    You take a breaker bar and socket on the axle nut and put the breaker bar on the ground and start the car. Put it in gear and break it loose. Then take the wheel off. Unbolt the upper a arm and let it drop. Pop the axle out of the hub on the wheel side. Put a bar where the axle goes into the trans and give it a quick jerk and pop It out. Check the axle seals and replace if needed. Take new axle and do everything in reverse.

    I had to one time. Some ass hole loosened my lug nuts and the wheel fell off on my wife on the highway. Next to a guard rail.

    My wife would watch for cars and I would lay down real quick and do a little work and jump back up when cars came.:shock:

    I got just close enough before tranny giggled and pulled away...poop. S/he needs your services bad, and an anal bleaching to boot.

    But the fluid leaking from the car is red. Red.

    I laughed so loud when I typed that. I wasn;t talking about your car. It was in honor of Beardo.

    I put a set of security lugs on my cars after that. I'm so anal about working on stuff. I will check lug nuts at least three times after I'm done. I'm just wondering why someone would loosen my lugs.

    What? Haha I barely understood half of that

    Lol I have No idea where to start. Like i said, if we think its worth getting looked at, I’ll have it looked at, but I don’t trust my life to my own repairs. I’d have to pay someone to look at it, or find someone to help out who knows what they’re doing, I’m not a mechanic by any means. I believe I’m smart enough to do it, but i don’t trust myself that much with the chance I hurt or kill myself or someone else in the case of a failure

    I can respect that.
    Even jacking up a car is seriously dangerous. If not comfy than don't

    Well I’ll try jacking the car up and try to get the tire off, it’s parked on a highway at the base of my neighborhood. It’s along the canyon floor and I live up a narrow street that snakes up the side of the canyon, which makes towing in and out of the neighborhood incredibly hard. And unfortunately, Being parked along highway 27 in Topanga canyon is not exactly a safe place to work on cars.
