    The final drive oil. Look for sheen or irridescence. That's bad. One of the main causes of drive motor failure is ignoring the quality and quantify of the final drive oil. If it's low, just adding oil may not be enough. That can indicate failure of the O-ring/gasket between the motor halves. Pull the case drain filters and look for bits of metal. None is good, but a few chips are normal.
