Question about 1992 Ford F350

1 Answer

Leaking front seal

I never have troubles with the leak around town or for short trips. If I drive it 12 miles and up the hills I lose alot of trans fluid out of the front of the trans. If I let it cool it stops. I think it is the front seal and so changing it but wondering if it may be the temp in teh trans and over heating?
If not those things then what?

SOURCE: pinion seal leaking

check your rear diff vent if pluged clean it out and clean up the pinion seal.sometimes if the leak is caused by pluged vent and has not been leaking long once vent is clean sometimes the leak will stop.there is not a specific torque amount because it is rotational torque(how hard to turn pinion).there is a crush sleve on the pinion and if torqued too tight or too loose brg preload will be wrong and brg damage could result.mark and remove drive shaft.remove rear wheels,brakes,axles.so when turning pinion you dont have any drag from brakes or axles.mark the position of the yoke on the pinion.remove yoke,replace seal,reinstall yoke be sure to replace pinion nut.tighten nut until it takes the exact same amount of force to turn pinion as before taking original pinion nut off.hope this helps.

SOURCE: transmission leak

you most likely have overheated the trans. and it has blown the fluid either out of the vent on top or out the dipstick tube its self. most cases just a top off and you should be good... there is also a tsb on re-routing the vent tube so it doesnt clog as easy

have your dealer inspect it for leaks, with this kind of mileage your valve cover gaskets, oil pan sealer and seals start to develop leaks, also try to use a good quality oil because areation is worst with cheap oils,

Car over heats up hills and long trips fine around town recently head done & thermostate no sign of water leak have only seen 1 of 2 radiator fans working


check which of the fans is running it could be the one for the airconditioning thats turning and that would explain why it over heats around town because there is no cold air to cool it and there is when you are driving on long trips

2001 Ford Windstar transmission fluid leak


Sorry!,..More than likely the front seal of the transmission has actually cut a groove into the torque convertor neck.I have seen these hundreds of times, when the van is hot the seal wont hold the fluid pressure behind it and trans fluid will leak past...also the lines/hoses are on the side of this transmission..the vent is located on top of this trans near the main connector,.not in the front(Ax4n).,, seriously go to an accredited trans shop only for this repairATRA......again sorry for the bad new..Bob Stinson
