800 Miles with a Crack

I just noticed a leak coming from my transmission two nights ago. The first night I had it home I was looking underneath the truck and noticed some oil on the the leading edge of the rear axle. I did not think much of it and just assumed something was spilled, over serviced or off the transport truck.

Well two weeks to the day I had it into the shop for a leaky transmission and after the tech(s) cleaned it up, they added some die and asked me to drive it 20-30 miles. I gave them 40+ and came back to find out there is a crack in my transmission housing.

I am confident this issue will be resolved by the service department, I have know these same guys for years and they have worked on everything I own. I am just on the other hand not too terribly happy this is happening to such an expensive truck. They only solution I will accept is an entirely new transmission. Not that I don't trust the techs, but I do not think that will only 800 miles I should have to worry about them rebuilding a transmission that shouldn't have to be rebuilt.

I guess if you have a new truck sitting on your driveway check it for transmission leaks.

I would have to say it happened in transit. That tranny is a very good unit.

most likely a bad casting, they will get you a new trans.

I think it was just a QC miss. There was a 2" horizontal crack near the 10 o'clock position. They shop was very surprised to see this, at first they were thinking it was just a weep hole. This was not the case.

They did get the truck a new transmission... it was a bit of a fight, but thankfully now it is all behind us and the transmission has been perfect.

Sadly, it's not in my driveway, it's in the shop, again. It spends a lot of time there.
