Fluid Puking from Rear of Trans
So I was scheduled to go look at a truck this weekend. Been searching for another PSD for a while, and thought I'd nailed down just what I was looking for. After the 4 hour drive, found not what I was looking for, but was able to get the price down enough that I now have a new project truck. Now if you all could help me with the first, and most important issue of the project.
Basic Truck info: 2000 F250 Crew 7.3 4x4. 190k miles. Other than this fluid issue it also vibrates really bad from about 45 mph and higher, stopping when the accelerator is let go. Shifts just fine
There is a crazy leak from the top, could be where the tailshaft extension seal is, but it seems to be coming down from the top somewhere. Now idling in park or neutral it's leaking a good bit, but when I put the trans in reverse it just start puking out all over.
I will be dropping the trans and transfer case down as soon as I can, but with this not being my daily driver I'm not in a rush. I'm trying to find out as much as I can ahead of time.
If anyone can bounce some ideas off of me I would appreciate it. My next steps is to bring it down and check for case cracks and change the tailshaft extension seal, but otherwise I need some ideas.
