Did you ever get this fixed? Mine has been plaguing me for a while; I am about to put non-hardening gasket sealer in mine!

There is no way for transmission fluid to leak into the car. I think you have a coolant leak from a heater core. Have a shop look at the fluid to confrim this.

dextron mercron 3, automatic transmission fluid. Mostly standard on fords and others for both auto and manual trans. Underneath the air intake pipe, at the rear right hand side there is a 4 prong plug for the speed sensor. Its electronic so there wont be any cable, its a round sensor with a horizontal plug on the end of it. Take a flat head screwdriver and pry the 2 holding prongs off the wiring harnes. then get a #10 socket 1/4in drive with exstinsions works best take out the bolt going right with the rachet. once you get it out just pull and twist the sensor out. It seems to be easier with a hose at the end of the funnel to pour the fluid in. stick the hose where the speed sensor was. once its full just assemble it back the way it was.

Hmmmm, The tube running to the firewall may just be an elevated vent for the trans, but it should noyt vent into the passenger compartment. Are you sure it isn't brake fluid? Brake fluid is used for the clutch as well as brakes. if either brake or clutch cylinders leak it would or could be possible the fluid will enter through the firewall and run down the nearest thing.. Ck that out, you can tell by smell which it is. brake fluid will wash off with water, gear oil will not. good luck

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.

DONT USE GEAR OIL IN A MANUAL TRANSMISSION. it will blow your seals out. the gear oil is too heavy and will block passages in the tranny
