I want to say, you should of done your homwork better. You transmission is going bad, must of been a rebuilt. Check your transmision fluid if they are up to level, if it is leveled... and that is the correct color of the transmission fluid. There are no filter for transmission flud, vacumm leakers would make your car surge or harder starts, or lost of h.p. At this point it is your transmission. It's going to totally break down soon.

SOURCE: 2003 RSX Manual: Slave cylander has been replaced twice. Still leaking fluid until transmission freezes. Mechanic can't find source of leak. Any ideas?

Do you understand the location of the slave cylinder and the master cylinder The master is the one on the clucth pedal the slave is in the bell houseing between the engine and transmission Like reynaldo said look for oil inside the cabin near the clucth pedal. The clucth system is a sealed hydrlic system like the break system . If air is getting in then oil is getting out To me it sounds like the master cylinder because you say the transmission frezzes and you can't shift the vehicle so the slave must be working at some point until enough air gets into the system to make it stop workinkg .Also make sure the master for the brakes is not to supply for the clutch some times it is not offten but check it

Rebuilt trans installed in 2011. seal leaked in 2012 and was replaced. 2015 leaking again after 7000 miles. Why?

seals depend on a properly positioned shaft upon which they run
most people when reconditioning a transmission neglect to replace the output shaft ( drive shaft) bush in the transmission extension housing which allows the shaft to move concentric to the seal edge
the seal then cannot preform its duty as the seal surface is continually lost and so leaks
So it would appear that the bush is worn or in the case of transverse transmissions a possible failing bearing or bush

Replaced rear output shaft seal a43d trans still leaking

I am hoping that when you fitted the seals the lip was facing inwards and the seals were square to the face or all the way home against the edge.

Hi Phil, On the Spyder end of the shaft that fits into the gearbox there is a retaining clip. Did you knock it in securely? If you did then a seal may have become damaged when making the replacement. That will need replacement. Regards John

Majority of older MONTERO' s are four wheel drives which means you have two more locations of possible Leaks, called output shaft seals. they are located ( from front of vehicle ) one on each side of transmission. left and right side. just follow the C.V. Joint shafts to where they enter transmission . in order to replace seals removal of C.V. SHAFTS is REQUIRED . verify this is where leaks starts at by cleaning area with spray degreaser and wiping area dry. .. secure vehicle with emergency BRAKE ON.. ALSO CHOCK WHEELS TO PREVENT VEHICLE FROM ACCIDENTALLY MOVING. SAFETY IS A PRIORITY !!! ALLOW ENGINE TO IDLE IN PARK. you should be able to view trans where shafts are installed and check for seepage. if you have small leak at idle and no motion imagine when your car is in motion, it probably rains fluid.

The seal you need is called a transmission/transaxle output shaft seal. The 2 best things to do, either get the number off the original seal and have it matched at a local autoparts store or go to Kia/Hyundai. they will know the proper seal. Be sure to install the seal evenly into the trans or it may leak again. If you need anything further, please let me know.

The output shaft seal does not need to be replaced from the inside. You take a screwdriver put it on the lip of the output shaft seal and pound it out towards the back of the car.
