Question about 1992 Toyota MR2
Replaced recon, engine lined up with tork converter,replaced the transmition oil, started the engine moved 2 foot and the transmition oil leakes out betueen the gear box and engine no drive, also removed the gear box replaced main seal same problem accured can any body help
It sounds like maybe the torque converter might not be fully seated into the trans, try taking it out and re install and turn the converter clockwise then counterclockwise while keeping pressure on the front of the conv. until you feel three little clicks or thuds. When it is fully seated you should barely be able to get your fingers between the the bell housing and the converter. while you have the converter out check the front pump seal again for damage if it looks chewed replace it put some trans fluid on the hub that goes into trans, the shiney part then slide it in. Hope that helps also when installing the trans make sure you tighten the bellhousing bolts first then do the torque converter bolts, that way you won't accidently unseat the conv. You have to turn the flywheel to get to all the bolts make sure everything is tight and good luck.

Not 100% sure on that one but very common in past that torque converter would move out from transmission slightly, and cause similar problem. used to have to rotate torque converter, while pushing in toward transmission, and suddenly when in the right place, would pop inward another inch or so. Had to remember to do that all the time. Sometimes you could rotate that torque converter 20-30 times before you'd get the "pop" and it would move in to place. Can you spin torque converter easily,while against engine? If not, that may be your problem. If so, back off bolts until you can carefully, and try that, you may find things come together easier after if that is the problem.
