Hi,I beleave you mean where it gose into the gearbox if so,
then Im affried that you will have to do the job again ,
make shore you clean the the serfices with a brake cleaner to make shore there is no dirt what so ever,before replaceing the cill just smear a tuch of oil on the new seal to make it easyer to slide in,it would be good also if you have a tool socket or something the same size as the cill to put on the cill to tap it home with.
its so easy to damidge the cills when putting them in we have all done it from time to time.
well wish you all the best,hope this was some help.

BAD TRANSMISSUION LEAK


Check the axle shaft seals where the two drive axles enter the transaxle. If leaking there the axle will have to be removed to replace the seal.
Look at the bottom pan of transaxle. If leaking from pan gasket, the pan will have to be removed and transmission drained to replace pan gasket.
There is a transaxle main shaft seal on the front of transaxle, hidden by the bellhousing that mounts to rear of engine.. If the shaft seal is leaking, fluid will be dripping from bottom of bellhousing, and when inspection cover is removed, fluid will be evident inside the bellhousing.
Check also the transmission fluid cooling lines, where the two lines exit the transaxle case, and go to front of car to an external cooler mounted in front of radiator, or going into a separate reservoir in the radiator.

Rear axle leaks, want to replace seal where drive shaft connects to axle.


A continental is a front wheel drive car since 89. You must mean a town car. The pinion shaft seal is tricky because of a bearing preload issue that can be catastrofic if you get it wrong. I would recomend seeking the skills of a pro.

Fluid coming from what looks like tranny. Im 17 yo and have a 66 tbird.


I can relate to your issue as I remember being 17 once. lol You need to be a little more clear on where you see the leak at. Jack the vehicle up and put it on jack stands or those little ramps you drive up on. Get under the vehicle and see if the leak appears to be coming from the front where it connects to the engine, the Transmission pan or the rear where the drive shaft comes out to go the the rear wheels. If it's the rear where the drive shaft connects its a pretty easy fix. If it's leaking around the transmission pan it's a pretty easy fix. If it's the Front near the engine it gets a lot harder because you have to drop the transmission to fix it. the other two can be fixed with the transmission installed. I recommend you get the Haynes Repair manual on your vehicle from the Auto Parts store to guide you through any of these repairs. The rear seal can be repaired by jacking the rear of the vehicle up and dropping the drive shaft then removing the old seal and putting in the new seal. The pan seal can be replaced by draining the transmission, removing the pan putting on the new seal and using silicon sealer, you might as well replace the Transmission filter while your at it, and putting the pan back on. Don't tighten those pan bolts too much or they will strip.

Tranny fluid dripping off the drive shaft still!


Hi!!

Check that the transmission is not overfilled, if OK, could be that the seal got damaged (which is very easy to do) when installed or when inserting back the drive shaft. I use the old seal to align the new one, a piece of wood and a rubber hammer to drive it in, always checking that is going straight. Before inserting the drive shaft, clean it good and lubricate w tranny fluid, that reduces the friccion when inserting it back.

Hope this help you fix your leak. click below if helpful. Good luck.

Transmission leaking through drive shaft


the rear seal on the tail shaft must have gotten damaged when you removed the shaft. it is available at any good parts store, easy to change. you have to pull the drive shaft back out, then you can use a small hook / prybar to pull the seal out, then tap the new one into place. pay close attention to the install height of the old seal before you remove it, so you know how far to drive the new seal in. good luck!

I have a 1995 lumina with the 3.4L engine. I have a slight oil leak and from the looks of the bottom of the car it has been leaking for quite a while. I just bought the car so i wouldnt know. But the oil...


SERIOULSY!!!!! first, go to a car wash, steam clean/ shampoo the entire engine (taking care to avoid directly spraying electricl components/distributor) then drive for about 10 km (6 miles) and look underneath the hood and see where the oil is possibley leaking from. Remeber, oil can leak down from the top and make somethine below it look as though that is where the oil is coming from. Also, the fan air can blow the oil from front to back making the oil drip from all over.
Possible places that oil leaks come front: top = valve cover. front = cam shaft or crank shaft seal if from the rear = could be rear main seal.

Put in transmission in feburary.


you will still need add the proper type fluid to proper fill level, get under the truck, clean up transmission so you can visually monitor where the leak is coming from. Chock the wheels, emergency brake set, start and idle vehicle check for leaks. If trans is leaking it will probably be a front seal (oil will drip from small hole in the bottom of bell housing), pan gasket, loose cooling line to radiator, or rear tail shaft leak ( where drive shaft enters the trans.) Don't forget to check the lines for pin holes and the radiator for leaks.

Rear Diffrantial Leak 98' Ford Explorer


It should be that easy if the leak is from the gasket. If it from the seal, you will have to remove the drive shaft from the differential and remove the seal and put in a new one. Either way, the repair is fairly easy.
