Is this a front seal or rear?
If it is the front seal you would have to drop the transmission out to replace. Once down and out you can use a small flat head screw driver to get the old one out and then dry it up as good as you can. Place the new seal in place and then tap around it in a clock wise circle until it is all seated. If it is the rear seal you can just drop the drive shaft and then same as the front. Take a small flat head screw driver and remove the old one and then dry it off and clean it as clean as possible. Place the new one in place and press it in as far as you can. Once it is in as far as you can push it then take a small hammer and tap it clock wise until it all the way seated. When pushing it with your fingers make sure that it stays straight or it will leak as well as the old one !

SOURCE: 1989 gmc sierra c1500 with 350 automatic 8 ft bed regular cab vibration at 45 in overdrive

I had the exactly the same problem, in overdrive my truck would start to shake, in 3rd it would instantly go away, i assumed it was the flywheel to, THIS IS NOT THE PROBLEM, your tranny is in good shape and flywheel are in good shape, I had the "Idle Motor" replaced is what my mechanic called it, this completely fixed my problem, also my fuel milage went up considerably after having this replaced, hopefully this will help you out

SOURCE: '97 Ford Escort leaking auto transmission fluid.

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid leaking from bell housing when in gear.

If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.

Transmission fluid coming from the front of my trans


If its dripping from the Torque converter cover it probably needs a new front seal on the transmission. Gotta pull the tranny to replace the seal. Just make sure its not coming from above like where the tranny lines go into the transmission. sometimes a leak above will settle and drip at the lowest point.

Leak coming from transfer case. It leaks right were the rear drive live goes into the transfer case. Replaced the seal once. Was leak free for about a week, and now it is worse than before. Possible...


the trans case is not under a pressure, the fluid is a free flow oiler that gets slung around by chain and gears. are you sure it was the right seal ? DIdnt damage it on install !!? did you over fill the case ? Check rear spline on case and make sure it is not sloppy movement back and forth, up and down. if it is then seal is getting pushed all over and oil seaps past. but you would have a vibration while driving that you would notice. is ther a groove on rear slip yoke that is riding on seal groove. after reading your question again, are you talking about the drive shaft going into the transfercase or the main trans/ transfercase mating area? What is a rear drive live? rear driveline!! as in driveshaft?

95 gmc sierra k1500 4x4 5spd manual noise


the leak is probably a separate issue from the noise. is the leak very bad? can you tell if it's engine oil or transmission lube/fluid? most likely the rear main bearing seal needs replacing. the noise is most likely the clutch release bearing. you should replace all components of the clutch assembly which include; clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing and piolot bearing. also have the fly wheel resurfaced. while the trans is out, you can check the rear main seal and the trans input shaft seal and replace accordingly.

1995 GMC Sierra 2wd - Speedo and tack stops functioning, intermittently. As a result trans is also malfunctioning.


Have the speed sensor checked on the transmission. I believe that truck has a 4L60E transmission in it. If so, the sensor is on the left rear of the case.

Fluid leak around starter


It may be a rear crank seal, or oil from the torque converter (automatic) or the input seal on the transmission. Check your fluid levels in your engine and trans. A visual inspection will help also. you could remove the inspection panel on the bottom of the trans bell housing. As for the clunk I would be leaning towards more of a starter issue for that.
