RL4FO2A/RE4FO2A: Mysterious Axle-Seal Leak

A 1993 Nissan Maxima was brought to a transmission shop. The customer complained about a persistent transmission leak that was leaving a spot on his garage floor and said the transmission had been rebuilt about a year earlier. He added that the vehicle was returned to the original shop within the first month to have the passenger-side axle seal replaced. Since the axle-seal replacement did not eliminate the leak, the vehicle was taken to a general-repair shop, which replaced the axle seal and installed another axle under warranty. The customer said that each time the vehicle was worked on, the leak seemed to stop for about a month, then reappear.
