I've got a 2000 Legecy GT sedan. Recently I noticed a oil smell similar to 90wt gear oil. I took it in and the mechanic said that the auto tranny was low and that some must have put auto tranny fluid in the differental... so he changed the fluid in both and things seemed fine for a couple of months then the smell returned. Now the auto tranny fluid is a little low but the differental is now a little high. Is it possible that a leak at the front of the auto tranny could force the tranny fluid into the differental and basically over fill it?

if the seal between the diff and tranny is leaking, that's quite possible

THAWA is correct the tube that is leaking is #11 on the site below
It means your going to have to pull the trany and pull the Torque Converter Case off and repace the tube and some seals

Bringing back this old thread because I might have this same issue in an '05 Baja. Does the $500 + parts pricing still apply?

Is this something that there's any chance at all of doing at home w/o a cherry picker & w/o pulling the engine? I still have hand tools, an air gun, a floor jack, jack stands, and stuff, but nothing more than that any more. What is the thought here? I have done some reasonably extensive work before (rebuilt the turbodiesel engine in my Mitsu pickup a few years ago), but I have less space and fewer tools now. Do I have to open the tranny itself, or is it simpler than that? With 80,000 miles, does it make sense to do anything else at the same time?
