Dealer ?

Is it common practice to drill a hole in the bellhousing at a dealership? When I got home I looked under my truck to check for leaks and I saw a 1/2" drilled hole. The truck went in for a leak that they said was the rear main seal. So they dropped the trans and replaced the wear sleeve, that they said was missing. It still has oil coming from somewhere....this is the truck from HELL!!

there was no wear sleeve on the rear main from the factory only on the replacement seals. The hole in the bellhousing was most likely someone was to lazy to line the converter studs to the fluwheel and drilled the hole so they could spin the converter to line up the studs with the flywheel.

That's just crazy....I will take it to my local dealer on Mon. I was dealing with the tech on the phone and he seemed to know what he was doing. Man....you just can't get good service anymore.

no

it's not that hard to access the front crank bolts to spin the engine to line up the convertor studs. you just have to know which wrench to use
