SOURCE: Loosing oil on the output

if your breather is fine, then most output shaft seal leaks can be attributed to a worn bushing in the tail housing. I'd grasp the drive shaft and using an up and down motion, see if there is excessive play. If that's the case, you'll need a new bushing. hope this helps.

90 percent of the time stop leak does not work. Usually the seal between the transmission and transfercase goes out and forces all the fluid into the transfercase and leaks out the rear seal. Or the tranfercase or transmission breather could be plugged.

SOURCE: Transfer case leak

You mean between the case halves? It is just silicon, no gasket. These are good for the pump wearing a hole in the rear housing and leaking oil. The cure for it is a new rear housing and a piece called a case saver that keeps the pump from doing it again. Taking the transfer case apart to fix it is easy, I can tell you how to do it.

best way to find out is to ask the dealer.... if they say yes... ask to speak to the area rep.... he/she may have it fixed under warrenty regardless of what the dealer says.

95 legacy awd Leaking transmission fluid out of the rear transfer case


If you have the space drop the drive line . You should have a tranny shaft poking out of the housing and the seal should be right at the back. 2 ways you can go. Get a good heavy screwdriver and lever out the seal or drill a small hole and with a slide hammer pull ot the seal. To fit the new seal use a piece of pipe That has the same dia as the outside of the seal tap the new seal in keeping it square to the hole. Tap in till level with edge of case. Check oil level and replace any lost oil as some will run out when you drop the drive line

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.

Automatic transmission leaks on my 2000 Rodeo 4wheel drive Any help? Please


If you have never serviced the transmission, it just may be time to have the transmission fluid and filter to be replaced if the transmission fluid is leaking from the transmission pan. If it's leaking from the rear of the transmission where the drive shaft goes in to, then it's the rear seal from the transfer case and the seal needs to be replaced and the transfer case topped off with fluid. If the fluid is leaking from the front of the transmission where the engine connects to the transmission than it's a good chance that it's the torque converter or front pump main seal. The other place that it could be leaking from is the transmission oil lines from the transmission to the cool at the radiator. Please let me know if it's leaks worst when the engine is running or only when your parked for a few hours. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Our 2001 Dodge Caravan seems to be leaking oil around drive shaft


Yes it's a bad seal and most likely the side bearing to the trans axle is bad too. Once the bearing has play, it vibrates and causes the oil to leak though the seal. Note: if one side went bad the other side is soon to follow since they have the same amount of miles on them. Might as well change both side. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep an eye on the transmission fluid level, don't want to burn out the transmission.
