Re: Transmission Seal Failure

I would check the two piece dipstick tube. Check the portion that enters the trans. Mine was leaking there and running towards the back of the trans. Took it apart, cleaned everything with brake cleaner, let it dry and sealed the tube with gray Int'l RTV. Everything it dry so far.

Think with your dipstick Jimmy!.... And get a pressure washer. Go from there.

Re: Transmission Seal Failure

I would definately clean it good and see where it's leaking before throwing parts at it.

Re: Transmission Seal Failure

Use brakeclean or something and just don't get so close with the power washer.

Yeah...pressure washing the motor isn't recommended...But it's your transmission that is dirty...and leaking.....remember?

Re: Transmission Seal Failure

turns out the bolts on the outside holding the transfer case to the rear of the tranny managed to vibrate out... so tomorrow they will all get replaced.
