1995 fluid blowing out

My 1995 F 350 dulley Has started blowing the fluid out I was pulling a heavy load through the mountains and it has 197000 miles on it the fluid does not have aburnt smell and it is not slipping untill the fluid is low. Would this be a front pump seal and would I need special tools to repair it my self I am a good mechanic but have no experence with auto trans. any advice would be great.

Thank You,

Greg,

Could be that. Also if your TQ converter is going, it COULD start pushing fluid back into the trans when loaded.

Thank you for the reply but would this also cause the fluid to come out at the bell housing and is there a way to test the tq also before it started blowing the fluid the shifts have become abrupt.

Ok e4od's do that when they get hot. the fluid expands to a point and pushes past the front seal. Its not unheard of, nore is it rare but its not good. the trans shouldnt get that hot. you have other issues to address

i know not what you wanted to hear but its the first sign my trans gave me before it died

Trucks and parts............
