I drove his truck to make sure his tranny was good. shifted perfect with no leaks. I put it in mine and a day later it has the worst leak I have ever seen. Figured out the guy with me added WAY to much fluid to the already full transmission, 8 quarts to be exact. I drove it about 100 miles that way with no problems until i noticed the leak. Drained the fluid and put the right amount but still leaks. Leak is coming from the piece that covers the flywheel/TC. Any ideas what happened? Thanks for the help
if it is coming from the dust shield it is the torque converter or the pump seal. how it happened i couldn't tell you. but if your tc is working properly and your pump seal is ok the that area stays dry. everything on the other side of that pump is wet, the seal keeps it out. maybe high oil pressure blew out that seal, it cost about $8.00 but requires dropping trans.
