    My 1995 Taco 4x4 is seaping gear oil up through short breather hose,and I also had a driver side axle seal leaking but changed that and the short 1 inch breather hose and it still leaks.Not as bad since I changed short hose.And I`m sure its not leaking from acuator because I also re sealed it and even tested it.
    I know its coming back up because when I cut the short breather hose,I left it off during the night and sure enough the next morning it was seaping up through where the hose attaches.
    The oil level in the diff is correct if not a hair below where it is supposed to be so its not overfilled.
    ITS DRIVING ME NUTS !!!

    Sounds like the breather check valve isnt working propperly. I think its just a Ball Check valve. Replace it and see if that fixes the issue.
