I have a 01 dodge stratus the seal is leaking behind the torque converter. I've replaced it three times already


There is a bushing there also. If the torque converter isn't straight it will eat the seal every time. It is an internal bushing, the transmission has to be torn down/rebuild.. Also the torque converter can have a ridge where the seal sets. This is a converter replace.

I have a 1993 Chevy WT1500 pickup with a leaking transmission.


did you use lock tight on the torque converter bolts when installing them? it may be coming loose and ruining the seals. It doesn't take much. You may have some kind of buildup on your output shaft or a bur of some type that is cutting the seal. Check the outside hub of the torque conv. for roughness or spurs. The seals should work if everything is done right.

What is involved with replacing the main seal to the torque converter.leaking seal to the torque converter.


Have to pull the transmission off of the engine and then slide the torque converter off and replace.
Remember, the transmission has 2 cv half shafts going into it, so that the cv halfshafts have to be removed.as well.

Hi i have a 93 buick lesabre that is leaking atf badly seems to be comming from right where the motor and transmisson join together im thinking torque converter seal and im wondering how difficult a job...


I worked on buicks at a dealer for 15 years and never saw a torque converter seal leaking...if its trans fluid that leaking i would suspect a front pump seal in the trans,If is not trans fluid make sure its not the back of the intake manifold leaking down the bellhousing seaming to leak from the trans. ..If oil maybe rear main seal... No special tools needed really just make sure you support the engine safely if you are going to remove the trans.....

95 ford escort transmission leak


Dont waste your time and money trying to use a transmission stop leak product, they don't work on large leaks, you say the leak is excessive in this case the you must remove the transmission to access and remove the torque converter, after you have removed the torque converter carefully inspect the torque convert imput shaft for wear and also you will need to visually inspect the transmission front pump bushing for wear also, I have seen it all to often people just replace the seal thinking it was just a seal failure, well more times than not there is a reason for seal more than just the age of the seal, excessive wear on trans pump bushing and torque converter imput shaft is usaully the cause, check and repair those as good practice during this repair unless you just like to do the repair over again for free... also check the torque converter run out, sometime when they are repaired they are welded back together somewhat crooked which will cause it to spin off of a true center, this will cause immediate damage to transmission. Check also your engines crankshaft end play for looseness this can cause wobble which will transfer to transmission causing this problem as well... do the repair thouroughly and who ever does it for you have them check all that I listed and you should get a good repair which will last without issues.... please rate my help thanks...

Transmission fluid leakage from stater motor area. 5.7L Vortec


If transmission fluid is dripping off the bellhousing your torque converter seal is leaking or your transmission pump seal is leaking. Chances are the torque converter seal is leaking since the torque converter is spinning on it any time the engine is turning, the pump seal dosen't move it just keeps fluid inside the transmission. Even though it leaks with or without the engine running I'm willing to bet if you got underneath it with the engine running you will see it leaks more with the engine running. Now if either seal is leaking it will require the engine to be removed from the transmission to get to the seal. Sorry but this isn't going to be a cheap quick fix.

Automatic fluid is leaking from the front of the small radiator


Your question is not complete but I assume u have a front seal leak on the transmission? this is the torque converter seal and it requires the removal of the trans to fix it/replace it, if the torque converter has a grove worn in the area where the seal rides you will also have to replace the torque converter. There are trans leak seal sweller chemicals out there, they will slow down or stop the leak for awhile, but in most cases this is a short term fix, also throughly clean the trans first (car wash works great) before any work and make double sure the leak is not from the trans pan gasket.
