If the torque convertor outer lip is scored it will eat away the new seal in no time. Also upon replacing the seal was it well lubed with vasoline or such? If installed dry it will rip & tear upon starting

I own a 1993 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 that has a leaking automatic transmission. It is Canadian made (not to sure if it makes a difference) with a 5.7L/350ci V8 with what I believe to be a 700r4 overdrive...


Its probably the 4L80E trans. Front seal might be possible. Sounds like torque converter to me. Does it still leak at that speed when the tranny is cold? Or just when its warm?

Replace transfer case chain in a 1989 GMC K2500


its not hard to do you need a gasket and seal kit too the hardest part is seperating the case halves . do not place a screwdriver in the case halves to seperate you will cause a leak ! remove the nuts on the yokes first then the case . mark with a scribed line and remove the trans speedo cable assembly set it aside tap and pry the case halves apart pull off the back half of case the front half is where you want everything to stay in place try to keep it standing up so rear case is up then you can lift up the front output shaft the chain and the planetary remove the rest of parts install new seals and reassemble the case uses rtv black sealant instead of gasket

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.

There should be a big nut in the center of the wheel hub. You will have to remove atleast one of the ball joints if it's IFS.

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

Replace rear axel bearing on 4x4 5.3 Litre gas engine


Loosen differential cover and let oil drain. Remove cover, remove U lock from axel. Pull axel out. Remove bearing seal then bearing. Install new bearing, seal and reinstall axel. Reinstall U lock and new cover gasket. Fill with 75-90wt gear oil. Now I know that sound pretty straight forward. But there are some things to remember. The U lock can be difficult to remove sometimes. The most important thing is the seal, you will need to make sure it gets seated correctly and not torn when installing axel.
