Had a pretty significant front axle leak develop. Anyone have this before? Is it likely the differential cover gasket if there is one, pinion seal or output shaft seals? Can't see anything with the underbody shields in place. The halfshafts are dry, so it seems like a pinion seal or cover/housing leak.

I do not recall anyone posting on this issue before. Don't use the car until it has been checked out.

Yeah, it seems pretty plausible that the seals are leaking a bit. See if you can't take the covers off to see which one exactly.

Dealer diagnosed failed turbo oil seal, charge pipe and EGR valve. USD4800 to repair. Will continue this thread in the diesel engine forum.
