these cars have a very common leakage area. Please fill me in with what engine size this is and i can help trouble shoot the issue.

oh and what bad carz said is probably a good place to start if this car is a 2.0l engine. i am more familiar with the 2.8L and 3.0L engine but i have acting knowledge of the smaller engines as well. If the ending unit is leaking you would be best to get a new one from what i hear it is a fairly easy task to replace it. How ever if you do it your self be very careful with the unit do not twist it to the side when backing it out or putting it back in as you may damage or break the unit.
