    this is normal, You should have drained all the fluids from the motor and tranny before trying to remove it.

    this is a very disturbing question from someone thats in the middle of a GSR swap... hope you have a good shop nearby...

    check your seals, and make sure you use the right fluid to fill it back up, but everything should be fine...

    DO NOT DRIVE IT without replacing that fluid...

    I got a big syringe to replace the fluid. they sell them at automotive stores, just suck the fluid out of the oil container and stick the hose into the fill plug on the tranny. fill the tranny until the oil level in the tranny is level with the plug.

    I cant remember what type of oil you need but Partsource ran it through there computer for me and told me exactly what I needed. I can check when I get home if you like. I still have the bottle.

    you are talking about transmission fluid coming out of the axel socket right, And not coming out of the axel it's self right?

    These seals are rubber and if you nicked them or snag them they could leak. I always replace these seals when I change a transmission. They probobly cost $5-6 each and it's worth it not to have a leak when you are all done. They are pressed in where the axles go into the trans. You can pry the old ones out and gently use a rubber mallet or something to put the new ones in. Be careful not to nick the transmission when you pry the seals out. It is best to use a seal pulling tool. They are cheep from auto parts store. Good luck.

    Just tell them you need transmission seals for where the axles go in.
