Do I need to take off the tranny to fix that? :eek:
It has the V8 with almost 200k miles on it.
Also I think rear axle is leaking because it is too moist but, I can't see any drop or anything

it depends where your transmission fluid is leaking from. i just (kind of) fixed a leaking transmission cooler line that runs from the radiator to the trans.. so not exactly the trans..
can you see where it is dripping or where the puddle is under your car?
the bottom of the fill tube is a common spot that rusts too right where the tube connects to the trans. It tends to pull out and leave a gap as well.
