Hi all,

I just picked up a 2001 Spyder and have had a ball driving it the last two days. I have noticed gear oil on my driveway though. Got to looking and it appears to be coming from the plug shown below. What is that and can I just yank it out, add some sealant and move on?

That's just a cap, our cars don't use that for a speed sensor so Toyota plugged it. I pulled mine and siliconed it up when it was leaking. No problems at all.

Even with the O-ring intact it shouldn't be leaking enough fluid to notice on his driveway. Might want to check to see if your gear oil got overfilled.

I had this problem after I changed the tranny oil. I didn't have the plug seated properly. Once I got it in correctly, it sealed.
