Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
On a trip home from Steamboat Springs, Co. my transmission started leaking. It only has 53,000 miles. All of my gears are working fine. it is not slipping. I just can't seem to keep fluid in it. It seems that the fluid is "blowing" all over the engine under the hood. Someone suggested checking the gearbox gasket??? Could this be the problem. What gasket and where?
I would have it de-greased thoroughly,make sure fluid is at correct level, then operate it for short drives at operating temperature,checking frequently for the first sign of a leak.Check the cooler lines and the vent, If it is running to hot or over full it will "blow" excess out vent.Hope this helps.
