Friend has major trans leak!

A friend of mine, who is actually a member on here (briscoe) called me this morning, and said he found a 10" puddle of trans fluid on the floor of his shop. He has been running the 210 for 99% of his tuned miles. I helped with the install.

He said he noticed that after he got back from towing about 7,000 pounds yesterday, there was the puddle this morning. I noticed a little leak back by where the trans meets the transfer case the last time we did an oil change. It smelled like trans fluid, but it was a small amount. I am thinking he had a small seal leak, that finally just let go. His truck is a 2009 F350 6.4. Any ideas? He has it in right now to the dealer, with the DPF still off, because apparently they are very mod friendly.

No, it definitely wasn't overfull. In fact, it was just checked about a week ago. He said he has also been experiencing extra hard shifts, and gear slamming. I am posting this for him, because he hardly ever gets on the org. So I said I would for him.

Because he is now trying to get another set of wheels, and is dealing with not having a truck all of a sudden. I told him I would make a thread for him, since he is a little preoccupied at the moment.

His transmission is coming out, because they say it definitely has a defective gasket. They think it is between the trans and transfer case, and possibly a bad pump gasket as well.

Just thought I would update you guys. They replaced a gasket in his trans, put it back in, and it leaked worse than before. So he took it back to the dealer, and they pulled out the trans again.

This time, the tech found that where the two halves of the Torque converter are welded together, had a split in one part of the weld! Scott said that they pressure tested the converter, and he could see the leak at the weld seam! Just thought I would update you guys on this crazy issue! By the way, his truck is an 09 F350 6.4.
