E4OD front seal pouring - new trans
history on the truck: when it was 2wd it had a problem with leaking front seals all the time. Traded the truck to a guy in FL who had to put a new trans in it...fast foreward to 2 years later and I have the truck back. Drove it home from FL no problems, no leaks. Guy never had a problem again with leaky trans... I converted the truck to 4wd a few days ago with a fresh rebuilt E4OD trans... last night we got some fluid in it and I drove it around the block real quick...went to go pick it up today to bring it home, recheck trans fluid and had to add about 4 quarts. notice it starts leaking from under the trans. just a steady drip. So I got drive it around the block real quick and when I get back its leaking even more... are these trans' bad about killing front seals? or is this truck just cursed? What do I need to do to keep it from doing this? Is there something we're not doing right?
its a 1996 extended cab, short bed F-250 powerstroke originally 2wd, not 4wd less front driveshaft.
