I have an 82 280zx (non turbo) and notice a oil spots under rear end. It appears the rear end has a leak....
suspect a seal? Has anyone else had this and where do I find a new one?
thanks

First thing to do is check the level of gear oil and make sure it's not low. You don't want to burn up the rear end while diagnosing this.

Next, clean up the rear end and see where the leak is. You need to know that before you can fix anything.

Possible leak spots:
-cover gasket
-drain plug
-side seals
-front seal

These parts should be readily available from a number Z and non-Z auto parts retailers.
