    did you pre grease the seals before you put in the cv shafts. And also are you sure you didnt damage them when you put the cv shaft in. Also does it apear to be coming from inside the bellhousing betwen the motor and trany if so you need a new input bering and seal

    i just had the exact same thing happen to me a month ago

    the b16 i bought had a mid shaft on it that i didn’t use, i used a different one.

    the inner opening on the tranny seal was to big. so i went back to the old transmission(where the mid-shaft i was using cam from) and snagged the seal ring. sure enough the inner diamiter was smaller, correct size to my mid-shaft

    cliff notes : ill bet its the drivers side seal on tranny, inner opening to big.

    let me know what it was so i can feel smart or stupid

    Make sure your axles are snapped ALL the way in.
