need to fix that ASAP.. the diff-to-trans seal has failed, and ATF contaminating diff fluid.. You'll need to drop the trans and split it open and redo the seal.. fun job.. usually its the other way around, diff fluid leaking into trans, and ATF level reading way full, while diff is bone dry. a diff killer for sure.

our vanagons are always giving us nice christmas presents, arent they? :<) chris
