Did you use a motorcraft seal? aftermarket seals are not as good, the factory seal is double lipped as far as I remember.

Rebuilt trans installed in 2011. seal leaked in 2012 and was replaced. 2015 leaking again after 7000 miles. Why?


seals depend on a properly positioned shaft upon which they run
most people when reconditioning a transmission neglect to replace the output shaft ( drive shaft) bush in the transmission extension housing which allows the shaft to move concentric to the seal edge
the seal then cannot preform its duty as the seal surface is continually lost and so leaks
So it would appear that the bush is worn or in the case of transverse transmissions a possible failing bearing or bush

Replaced rear output shaft seal a43d trans still leaking


I am hoping that when you fitted the seals the lip was facing inwards and the seals were square to the face or all the way home against the edge.

Auto trans.rear bushing leak


one of two reasons:
1- the part of the shaft which comes in contact with the lip of the seal has a groove in it
2- there is a brass bushing behind the seal in the tail of the trans which is meant to hold the shaft steady; if it is worn, then the shaft is moving out of range of the seals' ability to remain in contact with it.

Transfer case rear output seal leaks


Likely either the shaft has a wear scar on it that's too deep for even a new seal to compensate for or the bearing that supports the shaft is worn. Other possibility is that the same tech is installing it dry every time he replaces it....you need to put grease on the seal lip so it does not self-destruct before the normal lube can reach it.

I have a 97 suburban leaking atf from the rear output seal on the trans. Having removed the transfer case it looks like the seal has to be replaced from the inside. I would like to know if it does, and...


The output shaft seal does not need to be replaced from the inside. You take a screwdriver put it on the lip of the output shaft seal and pound it out towards the back of the car.

My 1986 toyota cressida leaks transmistion fluid out bottom of car where drive line connects to transmisson the transmission is fine how do i fix it


Based on your description I am going to assume your leak is @ the rear of the transmission. If so, the leak would most likely be from the transmission output seal. To fix, you will have to remove the drive-shaft by unbolting it from the rear axle and sliding it rearward out of the transmission. Once the shaft is out of the way, you will need to remove the seal by inserting a pry bar or large screwdriver between the transmission output shaft and the seal lip and pop it out. Sometimes you may have to partially collapse the steel shell inward towards the center with a small chisel and hammer to releive the press fit. Drive the new seal into the bore and reinstall the driveshaft. Check fluid, road test and check for leaks after the road test.
