90 percent of the time stop leak does not work. Usually the seal between the transmission and transfercase goes out and forces all the fluid into the transfercase and leaks out the rear seal. Or the tranfercase or transmission breather could be plugged.

1995 passport troubleshoot slow leak in manual transmission

There is a seal on the input and output shaft and a seal on the top cover . A slow leak will have road dirt collecting on the leaking area. An input shaft leak will in time foul the clutch disk. An output seal will cause the drive shaft to be wet where it connects to the transmission.

Transfer case leaking is there any vent wholes

The short answer is yes, most transfer cases do have a vent hole or more likely a vent tube. It seems troubling that you have any fluid coming out of it, though. It's much more likely that the leak is from a shaft seal than the vent tube. It would be well worth your while to have a drivetrain specialist look at it to ensure that it isn't a bigger problem.

If you're the do it yourself type person, here's some ideas to help you track it down. Generally speaking, there is one input shaft and one or two output shafts, depending on the setup. Check to see if you can see damage to the rubber seals which protect the actual shaft seal. A torn boot is a pretty good indication of a problem. Look for any actual formed drops and follow them back to where they would have come out of an oil bearing body. Remember to take gravity and wind into your calculations as oil always flows downhill and with the wind. Changing the seals on a transfer case can be challenging but it's a good job for a backyard mechanic.

If you're not mechanically inclined and familiar with repairing drivetrains in general, it's likely going to be faster and cheaper to have a trained mechanic do the repair.

Transmission and oil leaking in to oil pan under a 1999 jeep no seeable leak points but its a class 2 leak ( drips forming but no puddle under the vehicle)

There are three places above that pan that the leaks could be coming from. 1- Tail shaft of the transmission.Would be a red color. 2-3- Input and Output shafts on the transfer case. More the color of motor oil. There may be more oil in that skid pan just not at the correct angel to let it run off.

I dont recommend using additives to stop a leak on the transfer case. If the leak is on a shaft seal it will have zero effect anyway. Wynn's do have a couple additives that may stop seepage on gaskets but once again I do not recommend this. Fortunately, replacing a shaft seal only entails removing the shaft itself and then the seal can be pried out and replaced. Inspect the shaft itself as on a vehicle this old the shaft may have been grooved by the seal. This can be repaired by using a repair sleeve such as this.

Transmission fluid leaking back, 1988 Ford Bronco

your output seal on the tranny or input seal on your transfer case is bad. you have to pull your transfer case to tell. this is a pretty straight forward job. block wheels. put transfer case in neutral. drop front and rear drive lines.diconnect transfer case shift linkage. there is a short commponent connecting the trans to the transfer case. the bolt on either end face each other. remove the bolts to the transmission. the transfer case is heavier than it looks, i suggest getting help. pull back on the transfer case until it will drop down. it will pull out a bit because of the trans output shaft. replace what will probibly turn out to be the tranny output shaft seal and reassemble in reverse order.

Rear main seal leak


If somebody told you that you have a main seal leak what they meant was the round seal that is around the circumference of the output shaft of the crank. This same output shaft is basically hooked up to the transmission, or through to the transimission through a clutch. Well after some time, the round seal, it looks something like a flat donut, leaks. Imagine stretching a small spring around a shaft of steel and wrapping the spring in rubber. It will stop the oil from leaking along the shaft and out of the engine. After wear and tear, it needs to be replaced.

If this is the case, well, given that you have not said what type of vehicle you have, you would need to either pull the engine out or drop or pull out the transmission to get at the shaft and replace the $10 seal part. A lot of work for a small item but it will continue to leak until of course you run out of oil and ruin the motor.

I hope this helps somewhat.

2000 Jeep Cherokee Transfer Case Leak

Clean the area off with a degreaser and watch it. If it is an input or output seal leaking, you unbolt the drive shaft going into the case, remove the nut that holds the u-joint flange on, pry the old seal out and tap the new seal in (be careful not to tap too hard or the seal will bend)
