MODELS REAR DIFFERENTIAL

2005 Pontiac Other

Suspension problem
2005 Other Pontiac Models 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 30000 miles

I HAVE A 2005 PONTIAC VIBE AWD AND RECENTLY HAD MY OIL CHANGED AND WAS TOLD THEY FOUND A SLIGHT LEAK IN MY " REAR DIFFERENTIAL OR GEARBOX". THEY SAID THEY DIDNT KNOW WHAT CAUSED IT BUT SOMETIMES IF IT IS OVERFILLED THE PRESSURE CAN POP THE SEAL AND CAUSE A LEAK. THEY TOLD ME TO GET IT FIXED AS SOON AS I COULD BECAUSE IT COULD CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS FOR ME. I HAVE TWO QUESTONS, WHAT IS THIS " GEARBOX" AND SHOULD IT BE COVERED UNDER MY WARRANTY? I FEEL EVEN IF IT IS NOT COVERED UNDER MY WARANTY IT SHOULD BE SINCE THE FACTORY OR DEALERSHIP WOULD OBVIOUSLY HAVE BEEN THE ONE TO " OVERFILL" IT. THANK YOU.
