Either I misunderstood this or you may think that we were saying you might have to replace your driveshaft. When we said shaft we meant the shaft on the yoke, not your driveshaft. Sanding the yoke shaft might get rid of the scoring, and the grease can make a temporary seal. Either way, I'm betting a new yoke, as the shaft won't seal properly. I hope this clears things up.

Well that clears up a lot.. I thought it was a driveshaft. (rear driveshaft connects to the rear shaft yoke, right?)

Yup, just get a new yoke, it will all make sense when you see the part you need. You can do all of the above processes to buy yourself some time, but a new yoke will be needed.

Hey just coming with an update.
I've been keeping an eye on the leak and it's still going. I don't know if it's me or what but it might be leaking more now.
I guess I have to start thinking about getting a new rear output yoke to stop the leak (hopefully).

Is there something I could do to make sure that the leak is actually coming from the yoke instead of somewhere else?
I mean I'm sure it would be best to pull the thing out and look at it that way but I don't want to go buying parts that aren't going to fix the problem (college student, yay!)

This is the only spot a leak could be coming from with your pictures and description.

Ah ok.
This is just out of curiosity but could you maybe explain to me how or why fluid is in rear output yoke to begin with?
Like why does it go in there, what does it do?

My understanding is it helps to keep the seal from drying out and leaking, and it's a slip yoke, so the yoke moves in and out on a shaft, so the lube keeps the shaft from getting destroyed as well.

That's right, but that question was so weird I was starting to wonder if this is a troll thread.

Not trolling, genuinely want to know why my rear output yoke is leaking, why there's liquid in there in the first place, etc.
Sorry but like I said, I'm a total noob with cars. Just trying to learn, gotta start somewhere right?

Anyways, I guess the next step is to get a new rear output yoke and slap that baby on.
