Transfer Case/Tranny Leak

I have ATF leaking right where my tranny and transfer case go together. I dont think its tranny cause its rebuilt. Is there a seal in the front of the transfer case that can leak or is there a seal in the back of the tranny? Anyone have any idea where the fluids coming from and why?

There is a paper "tailshaft" gasket there (if you had a tailshaft) and some fluid between the two units.

Maybe that's bad? Maybe they didn't change it when they redid your trans, it's often back ordered

Does anyone have any pics of the gasket or where it would go exactly?

It's a round, paper gasket that goes between the trans and TC (where the 5 or 6 bolts connect the two). Is that where it's leaking ?

Ya thats exactly where its leaking. But how is the fluid getting to that part. I didnt think there was any fluid in there but maybe so. It is a small leak.

I don't know how much fluid is in there as you're driving, but when you pull the TC it IS wet with ATF back there (probably "sloshes" around some as you drive...)

BUT, when was your trans redone? Could you take it back to them and complain?

If it's just annoying you to see the leak, and not really losing much fluid, you can always ignore it and just keep an eye on the trans level!
