The obvious fluids under the hood, oil, coolant, ps, brake fluid. Check you're diff for any leaks as well

Not immediately, but eventually yes. If there is not enough fluid in there to lubricate the gears, axles, and differential, then you will have serious repairs on your hands. Where did you take the car. Did you verify that it was leaking? Alot of lube shops will try and BS you in order to get more work.

They told me my transmission seal was leaking and the rear end was soaked. At first he said it may be from the tranny but he said the rear end differential and tranny was low. I think he said they were both on there last quart or something and he said they hold like two or three idk. I had them put more in and they told me I should get it looked at because the transmission and rear end would have to be replace if left like that

1 quart in the diff???? Lol i think you would have heard some grinding if that was true. Like i said, where did you take it? Sounds like they were exaggerating a bit. Not to say that they aren't really leaking tho. I would go a shop that you trust and get a second opinion. If it's just the diff cover that's leaking, that's a cheap fix. Could be your pinion seal tho. And as far as the trans, where they talking about your rear main seal? That repair will be a bit pricey.

Hard to say. Most likely just wear and tear. How many miles on the car?

Does your car still have irs? If so expect $500-600 to reseal the diff cover...

The diff has to be removed from the irs assembly. Halfshafts pulled, etc. Quite the time consuming process.
