Is there any particular smell to the differential fluid?

The old GM stuff smelled like sulfur like they all did at one time. The grape scented GM has been out for a couple of years. The aftermarket does not smell too bad either.

I just got mine back from James. The pinion seal on me new (two months old) '06 diff was leaking. Mine would smell like burning oil after a drive because the fluid was getting slung on the Corsa. Then I found the little puddles in the garage....

James and Lindsay (ewill3rd, I think) fixed it with their usual expertise!!! Thanks again, guys.

I also have this problem, but don't know a trustworthy dealer to take it to.
