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.

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.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon Leaking Transmission Seal


The beaings job is to not only give the axle something to rotate on, but also the keep the axle centered in the hole. When the bearing gets loose, it allows the axle shaft to have an oblong roation, which wears on the seal and allows it to leak. You don't have to run the trans low on fluid to have the output bearings go bad. If you have gone enough miles to wear out a clutch, you have gone enough miles to get some play in the bearings.

Rear transmission leak


it sounds like you have a tail shaft seal gone in the transmission it's not a difficult fix if you are handy. Remove the drive shaft and remove the tail stock seal(there are install and removal tools but a hammer and a screwdriver will remove it nicely)then replace with new seal (if you don't have the install tool a 5" long piece of 2x4 and a hammer works BE GENTLE!!!!)and reinstall drive shaft..........these seals are available at your local auto parts store and are usually no more tan $10.00
hope this helps!.........good luck!
