Does Altitude cause Trans Leak?
I towed our RV with our 2001 F450 today, from 4000 ft to 8500ft - lots of downshifting and time in second gear - when we got to the RV park, trans fluid was leaking all over the place, but stopped and the temperature was about 165 according to the gauge.
Would the altitude cause the fluid to expand and run over?
Fluid level now is not showing too low.
