SOURCE: Transmission Leak. Torque Converter Front Seal?

I know that GM dosen't have a fill/check tube on several models. They use a plug on the side of the unit (like on stickshift transmissions) I'm sure there would be a similar item on your transmission otherwise after a rebuild, there would be no way to refill it. If it's a small leak you could try using a good sealer/conditioner such as Lucas, which may help you a lot.

Not too bad. Not much room, just enough to drop the starter. It is probably easier to go up through exhaust if you can get your exhaust shield off the manifold .

A 97 2.6LT 2 wheel drive auto Rodeo,took box out when i put it back in it haze no gears like its not getting oil,.why


the problem may be in the installation process of the box
the correct procedure is to put the torque converter onto the shaft of the transmission first and push it all the way back to engage the oil pump for the transmission
install the transmission then pull the torque converter forward to install the bolts through the flexi plate
putting the torque converter in first then putting the box up generally results in the drive for the oil pump not connecting properly in the torque converter
