    For the past few days I've been slowly dripping transmission fluid so that when I park and go to work, there'll be a puddle (about 3 - 4 in. diameter) directly underneath the slip-yoke on the front driveshaft about 8 hrs. later. It looks like the fluid is dripping from the U-joint and sliding down the drive shaft and dripping to the ground from there. I was wondering if anybody else has had this problem or if anyone knows what could be wrong - I'm pretty clueless about the mechanics of things so if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. (I have a NP208 on my '86 if it matters)

    Hey there
    It sounds like the front shaft seal is going south.


    my truck's not dirty, it's earth tone paint
