ATF Leak Toyota Corolla 1999 DX Sign In

I have a serious ATF leak from the Left hand Side onto the ground. (100ml per day). Both drive shaft oil seals are dry as bone. Filler pipe into casting is secure. Cannot find where the oil is coming from. I've steam cleaned and had a good look but find find nothing Any Suggestions???

How can you lose that much fluid and not see any of it?

You have to look for the highest point you see fluid. If it's just spreading too much then clean it again and inspect it quicker.

Yes, thanks for suggestion. I've just cleaned it all off, topped it back up, and tried to see anything while the engine was running. No luck yet. I'll go back and check in 10 minutes, 30 minutes etc. I'm starting to wonder if its the cork seal around the bottom plate and the oil is just vibrating up higher levels.

I'm betting it's the axle seal and you just aren't seeing it.
