There is a trans pump seal between the tourque converter and the pump. I would degrease the entire engine (including the trans)first and put some oil dye in the trans to see if the leak is actually comming from there. It's possible but unlikely.
if it is indeed hooked to your transmisson, its the transmissoin cooler lines, which are ran to the radiator to get cooled off. The oil cooler cools your engine oil, and has nothing to do with the transmission. If these lines are severed, or cut, your transmission will not operate. It will squirt out all the transmission fluid. I suggest replacing them because if they are already hanging low, then a crimp or weak spot is already in place to cause transmission problems.
Changing a rear main seal is a major repair. The transmission must be separated from the motor to get to it. The way you know a rear main seal is bad is that it will be leaking oil between the back of the engine and the front of the transmission. If it is not leaking oil, then leave it alone. If it is leaking then you have two options. Have some replace it by doing what I have just told you (call around, its probably pretty expensive). Or you can do what I would do, Just check your oil ALL the time and add oil when you need to. Put some cardboard under your car where the oil drips and leave it alone until you want to spend the money.
It,s a wheel bearing. Not all bearings will move when bad. A way to check to see which side it is, is to drive the car (parking lot is a good place) Turn the car at sharp corners , When turning right, if the noise is not as noticable then the the right bearing is bad, because you are taking pressure off the tire. But I recommend that both bearings be replaced. If one is bad the other will follow, if it's not already on it's way out. You can do this job, except the bearings have to be pressed out and in to the hub.
Sounds like transmission problems to me. Check your transmission fluid. If it is very low, you need to find out why. Probably a broken cooler line, (going from the transmission to the radiator) bad transmission output seal,(where the axles come out of the transmission) or front pump seal. (leaking between the engine block and the transmission housing) If it smells bad (like burned oil) and is dark brown, your transmission is burned up.
Good afternoon. Sounds like you need to check the engine/transmission mounts. Bad mounts will cause a vibration you are describing and will transmit normal engine vibration into the frame of vehicle causing vibration to occur. Most mounts are made of rubber but some are filled with oil and are called hydro-mounts. Check all mounts for cracked rubber at mount where it attatches to engine,transmission and frame. Hope you find this information useful! Have a great day!
Your front pump in the transmission could be going bad. Check the transmission fluid for level and condition. The fluid should be bright red and not burnt (dark in color like burgandy). Best thing to do is take it to a transmission shop and have them check your truck for DTC codes with a Tech 2 scanner and have them do a transmission line pressure test. The whining can also indicate low on transmission fluid and that's bad, you may have burnt some of the clutch packs already and shorten the life of your transmission. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
First, do you see oil leaking on your driveway? Have you looked under the car and checked to see if any oil is dripping?A rear main seal will drip down the front cover plate of the transmission sometimes from the inside, appearing like a front seal leak on your transmission but the oil will not be red fluid you would expect if that were the case. I would not worry about rear main unless you see a leak there. Look your entire engine over and check for leaks everywhere. Several small leaks can add up to an overall large oil loss. Correct the larger ones first. Generally all seals will last far longer if you change your oil frequently using a good quality lubricant. If you are loosing some oil, use one of the oils made for high mile engines. I suggest you use a mild additive like marvel oil 1pint with every oil change...it removes sludge, carbon and varnish buildup without the drawback of knocking it loose all at once, where it could plug up your oil pump screen. (it also smells good) Change oil every 3000 miles for the first three or four intervals, then consider using a good synthetic oil. Synthetics far outperform any other lubricant in every area! Avoid overheating your engine...overheating does more damage to seals than any single other item...When seals get very hot they harden up, crack and fail. Good luck with your car!!!
