SOURCE: Ford Escort Oil Leak on selector shaft

usually an "O" ring where the shaft comes out of the box but if the shaft is worn where the seal runs you may have to replace the shaft

SOURCE: my ford focus is leaking

Is the oil you see reasonably clean or is it black. The gearbox oil would be cleaner than the engine oil. Gearbox leaks would most likely come from one of the following:-

  1. Drive shafts
  2. Gear change lever inputs,
  3. Speedo cable
  4. Reverse light switch
  5. Drain plug
  6. Input shaft seal (inside the bell housing).
Pig a piece of paper under the car when you park it at night to give you an idea where the drip is located and inspect the area above that position

SOURCE: 1989 ford escort cabriolet gearbox oil

is it manual tranny? if so u do so under the car by removing the fill up plug which is located on the side of the tranny on driver side of the car if i remember. The plug under the tranny is to drain it.

If u drain it, when u fill it back up, u do so until oil slightly spills out by way of that side plug.

SOURCE: Ford C4 Auto gearbox spits oil

It sounds like it could be overfilled, but that will be easy enough to check on the dipstick. Should be checked with the engine idling in neutral. Otherwise, the trans could be overheating, causing the oil to expand to the point that it spits out the breather. Pull the dipstick and check the fluid condition, if it's dark and smells burnt, the trans may be slipping or overheating for some other reason, and it's probably time to get a trans shop involved. You should probably run an auxiliary cooler at the radiator area in the type of application you describe, especially if you're gonna be using the gas pedal fairly heavily! Sounds like a sweet car, lots of fun to be had in something like that.

SOURCE: gearbox seal leaking slightly

Depends what seal it is? Is this a Automatic or manual?

Also a lot of seals will look a little damp but be fine if it is a moving part like a shift seal. Nothing to worry unless it is a major leak and causing to add fluid.

If it is not leaking just keep a eye on it for the next couple thousand miles. If not leak then enjoy your car and don;t worry unless you start to see fluids under the car.

Oil leak from my SSangyong Rexton 2.7XDI continues to be a problem


drain /remove the oil until the correct level is obtained on the dip stick for starters . Next the "O" ring seal on the side of the box at the harness should be fitted with the use of a sealant ( locktite blue or red) in to a dry hole and allowed to skin . Incorrect fluid levels will cause the oil to aerate and flow out of any breather holes and will pressurize the transmission placing a strain on any seal .

I am looking for assistance with my transmission for the truck mentinoed (1994 chevy sierra c1500). the seals have expanded and the fluid has leaked out.


I assume it's a manual transmission,
Check that the gearbox air breather vent is not blocked. If so, top up with gearbox oil and re-check for leaks.
Replace all leaking seals, if cleaning the breather doesn't fix it.
