Question about GMC Suburban

1 Answer

I have a 97 suburban leaking atf from the rear output seal on the trans. Having removed the transfer case it looks like the seal has to be replaced from the inside. I would like to know if it does, and does this trans require special tools to do so?

The output shaft seal does not need to be replaced from the inside. You take a screwdriver put it on the lip of the output shaft seal and pound it out towards the back of the car.

How much does a rear trans seal cost 1995 jeep cherokee


4wd? which tranny? some are 2wd, you know that?
we can not guess that.
and the seal is free, the labor is 99.9999% of the cost.
if you work on 4wd cars, you learn fast what labor means.
ROB, the jeep dealer sells it, and is on line and you can see the cost there, any time , anywhere on earth (WWW)
here is the link. to one of 100s.

my 5 jeeps, 88 to now
all have 5/6speed and 4wd
what is yours? ive not a clue.
is the transfer case leaking (if you even have one)
is the trans leaking, rear.? as you say.?
on mine, if the tranmission rear leaks oil, its not the transmission leaking because , only the transfer case can leak, see?
it replaces the tranny seal with the transfer case.
on one old jeep the front xtransfer case seal can leak to the center section. so look under your car , and tell us, exactly the spot of the leak. even a photo speaks 1000 words , or more for leaks.
what i do is clean it first, drive 10 miles then look.
wind and gravity are not our friends here.

In some cases, its better to just let it leak
but again, no drive line options stated at all ,so can NOT advise.

Bellhousing leak


did you just have the fluid replaced in the transfer case?? if the answer is no, the you may have a leak from the series of seals that are internal. you will have to have the transfer case removed and have the CVT seal replaced and other seals inside of the transfer case. lengthy repair and costly also. the transfer case has to be removed to replace the CVT side seal and while you are in there replace seals inside of the transfer case also. that what its sounds like to me. transfer case seal leak or the inside CVT seal leak. however if its leaking right from the bellhousing, it also could be the torque converter seal. this is when proper diagnosis comes to play. if its d converter seal, than the trans has to come out. have this one checked by someone that knows what they are doing. could be transfer case seal leak and it could be converter leak.

2003 chevy trailblazer, trans fluid disappears with no sign of leak, does anyone have an idea where it goes?


If you are losing fluid and there is no sign of leaks then it can only be going to one of two places. Into the radiator, due to a faulty transmission cooler, or more likely into the transfer case due to a faulty input seal in the transfer case. To confirm if it is going into the radiator just remove the rad cap and look for ATF floating on the coolant. But ONLY DO THIS WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD!!! You don't want to be sprayed with hot engine coolant. But the safer alternative would be to remove the transfer case fill-plug. If an excessive amount of ATF runs out then the input seal in the transfer case needs replacing.

Noise coming from the transfercase near the transmissionand leaking fluid between the both where they meet up


First I would check your fluid level. There are 2 plugs located on the rear of the transfer case. Remove the top one and verify fluid level. To repair the leak the transfer case will need to be removed and reinstalled with a new gasket.

Verify fluid level first, add if needed and verify that sound goes away. If sound fails to go away you will need to have the transfer case replaced or rebuilt. I think the fluid is Dextron III ATF. Double check with another source before adding fluid.

Transmission fluid leaking back, 1988 Ford Bronco


your output seal on the tranny or input seal on your transfer case is bad. you have to pull your transfer case to tell. this is a pretty straight forward job. block wheels. put transfer case in neutral. drop front and rear drive lines.diconnect transfer case shift linkage. there is a short commponent connecting the trans to the transfer case. the bolt on either end face each other. remove the bolts to the transmission. the transfer case is heavier than it looks, i suggest getting help. pull back on the transfer case until it will drop down. it will pull out a bit because of the trans output shaft. replace what will probibly turn out to be the tranny output shaft seal and reassemble in reverse order.

Everything was rebuilt on the transmission. However, then driving over 50mph the oil leaks. What can possibly be wrong.


If oil is leaking from the transmission then one of the seals was installed improperly take it back to the person who rebuilt it and ask them to take a look at it for you and repair it if it's warrentied.
