well not a lot i kept a lil more than i was suppose too...like when i filled it there was fluid comming out of the hole and i just put the bolt back on...so there was little comming out of the axel. when u put the axel in it just goes in easily? but u hear it click in rite? or do u sorta have to hammer it in or something?

you don't hammer in an axle..

you sure its tranny fluid?

It's most likely your axle that popped out.

when an axel snaps it doesnt mean it came out of the tranny or out the hub. it could look normal until you look at the shaft and you see it broken in half.

unless its in the boot and it broke the cv joint, then u wont see it till the boot comes off lol

jack it up, put it in gear, and move one wheel and see if the other moves, then do the same thing on the other side

also, what kinda swap?? just motor? or motor and tranny?

on my accord the axel was snapped in half in the middle and i wasnt able to tell until i actually went and looked at it properly.
