SOURCE: Front Main Seal is blown on the Transmission

You have to remove the transmission, remove the torque converter to access the seal. Most likely the bushing behind the seal is worn out allowing fluid to leak past the seal. After the trans. is out, take it to a trans. shop. It requires a special tool to change the bushing. Seems like a bunch of work for $10.00 in parts. The rear main seal requires pulling the pan to access it. When the trans. is out, this is the time to replace the rear main seal on the engine.

What does the front seal look like on a 1984 f150 4x4 302 transmission


It looks like a seal. The transmission has to be removed in order to see/access it. It is most likely the transmission front pump seal you are reffering to and is internal to the transmission

A leaking automatic transmission, is that sign of major trouble for an 89 Wrangler Jeep?


How long has it been leaking? If the transmission ran low on fluid for some time, that could lead to big trouble. If it was kept above the add mark at all costs, then a seal or gasket should end your worries.
The location of the leak is important. If it happens to be a front shaft seal that leaks (fluid would be gathered behind the lower inspection plate, on the bottom front of the transmission), then the transmission would have to be pulled out to replace that seal. But other leaks like a pan gasket leak is pretty easy to fix.

My transmission leaks what should i replace


There are at least 5 places on the Automatic transmission that can over time, and mileage develope fluid leaks. Front converter seal at the front of the transmission,pan gasket in the center,dipstick tube o ring at the center on one side ,speed sensor o ring,and the tail shaft seal at the rear,of the transmission.
Place a flat piece or huge card board,under the engine and transmission,after driving you will see where the fluid,red in color is dripping. Its easier to spot exactly where the leak is comming if you can look under the car,while it is running, The easiest leak is the pan gasket,the dipstick tube, and the speed sensor,then the rear housing tail shaft bushing and seal.
If the front seal(converter seal) is leaking the transmission will need removed,and the seal,and maybe even the front pump bushing Replaced,it would be a good idea to replace the bushing esp if it has high mileage,80,000 or 100,000 miles of use.Change the fluid and the filter,while repareing the leak or leaks.Is a good idea.

Have relaced pan gasket and front seal of transmission, was driving at approx. 40mph and car stopped. tried all gears would not move HELP


front seal? is it the front pump seal/ torque converter seal? ( the one behind the torque converter )
this model has a lot of problem with transmission, you may have a bad transmission before you even do any work!
check your fluid make sure you fill enough and visualize the shift cable and every thing connect to the transmission. good luck!

Transmission fluid leaking from front of transmission as soon as the motor is started. the bell housing cover is missing and the fluid is on the flywheel. I cannot offer more detail at this time. My...


That is going to be a front main seal on the transmission if you're sure it's transmission fluid or a rear main seal of the engine if it's engine oil. I put that in here just in case you weren't positive it's transmission fluid. Either way the transmission will have to come out to replace either of those seals.

2006 Saturn Vue AWD loses oil fast


First I'd find a different shop. $100 to look at it? I don't think so. Sounds like this may be a transmission issue.

Transmission slipping......


If its the main seal gone,you will have to remove the tranny regardless because the main seal is the torq converter seal.Even though it leaks,if its slipping when full of oil chances are your tranny is no good,if it shifts fine its not to late,just keep it full of oil and have the leak fixed.Look under the front of the car when its in park,with the e.brake on and running,look for the leak.If the leak is between the the motor and the tranny its probably the main seal.Check the transmission pan,axle seals and coolant lines for leaks also.Changing the transmission is no small job and should be done by a garage if your not sure how to do it.Hope this helps.
