I got a 05 model and noticed a slight slip from 3 to 4, no fluid register on dip stick. There's fluid on the pan, on the line coming into the trans on the pass side, and a little higher up to. Driver side is clean. Don't know if its leaking down or spraying up. Anything on the passenger side to look closly at when I crawl under it tomorrow. Anything that typically leaks on this trans? Fluid is clean and red. Any help is appreciated
My trans puked once out of the vent, figure I lost about a quart. Wasn't overheating, just pulling a long grade towing heavy. Has never done it again. Just get some GUNK and spray it/let it soak, and pressure wash it. Drive it for a few days and go re-check. If you're feeling really creative, get some UV dye and a leak detection kit.

So I got some fluid and degreaser. Cleaned the transfer and topped it off. Let it run and get warm but no leak. Brake stood it in drive and reverse. No leak. Drive it up the road and back. LEAK. Its coming from the top of the trans and running down the passenger side. What could be up there leaking fluid as I drive. And I was driving normal. Not hot rodding. Thanks for the help
on mine, i noticed what looked like a bolt in the top of the tranny case, i can only see it from in the engine compartment, typically with turbo removed or from a good angle on passenger side, unless you want to pull the wheel well liners, someone should know better for what it is
