well its a psd of corse since thats kinda what this forum is about-lol
but i will go on and start the long story.
this morning i got called into work to go lay block and met a co-worker at the shop that drives the truck discribed and loaded these huge 80 lb. block.
so they were on pallets and they were so heavy that when the forklift tryed to pick it up the pallet just fell apart.
but there was 36 blocks per pallet and we put 4 pallets on the tralier so all together its 11520 lbs. + tralier
so when we took off it had a little trouble takin off but we had to climb this little drive way that was the deff. of steep! and about 500 ft long.
so we got to the top and still sitting on the hill we unloaded another trailer and while we were trying to back it up i noticed oil on the driveway startin where he started backin up and it was trany fluid so i stoped him and we unloaded there and left it sit and thats where its at now.
is there something wrong or did it just over heat?

sorry for the novel

Sounds like he blew the front seal on the tranny. My dad did this a month ago.

The front seal sounds right. I've heard of this going 2 ways. I have one friend that got lucky and he just parked the truck a couple days topped of the fluid and didn't have any problems. On the other I konw another guy that just parked the truck pulled the tranny and replaced the seal.

well we went to get it this mornin and just got back but started fine and went into drive fine (trailer empty) and we watched the trans for leaks and nothing, drove on up the hill and turned around and went back to the shop and checked the trans fluid and it was just off the full mark. so did it just get hot and over flow or further problems?

Well

more then likely its the convertor seal in the front of the pump. It will probably be ok till the next time you pull or get it hot enough to leak again.

Backing up heavy trailers in reverse on a hill hurts tranny's. It hurt my dads 4R100 and it broke 2 of my 5R110's.
