We were told the rear differential(drive shaft, the part on the inside, not easily accessible) in our jeep has a leak. Is this a common occurance for a jeep with 85,000 miles and is there a reason it took a repairman at Sears doing a oil change to point it out after it had been in the shop at the jeep dealership for a thermostat problem and never noticed. What should we expect to pay to have this fixed. Thank you for your time!

Yes, common occurance. The dealer never has the vehicle up in the air, thats how they missed it.

Seal is around 20 and the labor is 1.5 hours
