Hello , You could have a leak at the transmission dip stick tube o-ring, the front pump gasket, the torque converter seal , the transmission output shaft seal or the transmission oil cooler lines. I suggest you put the car on a lift to make it easier to see where the leak is coming from.
Hello lets start by removal of the retainer bolt at the base of the dip stick tube usually 3/8 inch or 10mm ounce removed wiggle and pull out comes the dip stick tube see the o ring seal lets remove and replace it now put it back with new seal and tighten down problem should be resolved.
"Sealed" means there's no dip stick tube. The Explorers and Lincoln LS have this also. It is nothing new and you can still change/flush the fluid as usual. A special procedure is used to check the fluid level. Not having the dip stick tube is one less place for dirt to get into the transmission. please rate my answer
Hi, if there is no dip stick, the transmission may be sealed. in this case, your issue will be a main seal or faulty transmission pane seal(gasket). if possible, raise your vehicle so that you can get a good look at the pan and main seal area..
Tal, The dipstick tube does have a cup seal that is used to seal the tube to the transmission case. They can leak, you would have to remove the bolt on the transmission bell housing, pull the tube up out of the hole and replace the seal.
The plug you refer to is for pressure testing. It is a pipe plug fitting that can be resealed with teflon tape from the hardware store.
Good luck let me know.
PS. make sure the transmission fluid level is not over full.
you can replace the seal. some use an o ring some use a grommet. either way pull the tube out. have to remove the bellhousing bolt that holds tube. and change out seal. remember when you remove the tube fluid is going to pour out so have a pan underneath.
