SOURCE: Transmission fluid leaking after getting warm from front of transmission pan even after replacing gasket, and need torque specs for transmission pan

pan bolt torque is in inch pounds (not a lot, around 10-15) generally it's not necessary for exact because pans are a bit warped many times and exact dosen't work anyhow. Tighten snugly without leaning into the wrench, then check running and tighten anywhere that is seeping.
if it's dry after a week of running it's fine.It's important not to crush the gasket. If you have one with a two piece dipstick tube sometimes if the vent is a bit blocked the fluid can get out at the connection between the two halves. I don't know if anything is available to join them together better but I use a piece of hose over them to keep water out off-road. Make sure the vent is clear. If it's leaking, the only way to find the leak is to look carefully at everything, clean off areas where there is too much gunk to see well. pretty much the only place at the front that there is a seal is in the pump and around the pump. it would leak down inside the bellhousing and drip out onto the front of the pan rail after being blown back while driving. Both seals are not accessible unless the unit is removed.

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 anti-freeze leaking outside along firewall getting on transmission

The anti-freeze leaking outside along the firewall indicates that your vehicle's coolant line leading towards the cabin heater is leaking. The leak can be resolved by refreshing the gaskets on the connector or having it serviced by a qualified a/c-heating technician.
Hope this helps.

Transmission is leaking after replacing the orginal with a used in a 88 crown vic how can i fix it and whats wrong with it?

the only places it can leak are the front and rear seals,The dip stick tube has an Oring or rubber boot on it, the pan gasket, And the over flow /breather tube on top of the transmission. If it's coming from the top then it is over filled. Most bad /excessive leaks come from the dip stick tube, damaged the Oring or forgot the rubber boot.

Transmission leaking

I have a 1988 Ford Crown Vic....on mine, there is a small leak at the back end of the transmission, where the drive shaft connects....

Is this where your fluid is leaking from?

My cousin is a ford mechanic...he told me that he sees that a lot on the vics of this age.....not because a seal is bad, but because of how the tranny is made....

but im not sure...

hope this helps somehow...

Leaking transmission fluid

Does this vehicle have a transmission pan? If so, is there a gasket betwixt pan and motor? Bad gasket? Or is the leak out the side/back of the tranny where the seals are?
