Oil on Inside Rear Dually

After driving my Monaco 03 Knight for about an hour over moderate terrain I noticed my passenger side rear duallys smelled of hot breaks, then I looked underneath and noticed an oil slick sprayed over the inside wall of the inner tire. Do I have a break leak? or what do you think this is? Thanks

Well, since your brakes work on AIR pressure, they aren't likely to spray oil around.

More likely you have a problem with either oil overfilled and leaking out the slobber tube or a rear axle seal leak. There are lots of other possibilities, but those are the most likely to be a problem in that area.

Most likely a wheel seal. While you have the wheels and hub off replace the bearings and races. Also you should replace the other side also.

I agree with DMTTRANSPORT, it's most likely an axle seal. Not difficult to repair. Very unlikely anything to do with engine unless you do your driving in reverse. Very difficult for engine, 4-8' behind rear axle to dribble oil from the slobber tube. If you have hydraulic over air brakes it could be brake fluid, but you'd probably have a brake light on dashboard warning low fluid.

Thanks for your help. You said, "replace the bearings and races". I understand what bearings are but what do you mean by "races"?

Races are the smooth ring the bearings roll on. They come with the bearings and are always replaced when bearings are. Races being scored or discolored is indication bearings need replacing.

Thanks BFlinn181 I hate to also add that you will most likely have to put new brake shoes on cause they will be soaked with gear oil. Good luck

This is not a DIY project, nor a project you want to delay. I would want to get this resolved ASAP. Hopefully you have a place that works on big trucks reasonably nearby?
