How to fix oil leak from top of a manual gearbox housing

How to fix an oil leak from top of gearbox housing where it joins the manual gear shift, is there a seal or washer that has worn out? it's a 1995 model with 130K on the clock.
It's not the shift stick itself but where it goes into the box, there is a constant leak when the vehicle is in use, gearbox pressure I guess forcing it out, there are no visible cracks or impact damage.
Whats the solution? Can something be replaced without it being a huge job.

Sorry but its going to be a big job. you need to remove the gearbox to open up and get to the seals. you could try and use an additive in the gear box, its like oil seal for engine you can get it for engines gear boxes and difs and power steering. it sometimes goes by seek and seal, in older vehicles its quite good. you will need to replace the oil it will need to be done twice to clean it all out so it can get a good seal.. i.e change oil run engine get the gearbox to move for 20 min then change the oil as its warm not hot so let it cool down for 10-20 min then drain. put the seek and seal in and top up with oil and run as normal, check after a few days to see if its worked. usual does.

SOURCE: intake manifold sealant repair now leaking maybe oil? coolant b4

You need to remove the thermostat housing again. Then you will have to extract the bolts you broke off. You will need to drill and tap them so you can use an easy out to remove the broken bolts from the threads. Then you can clean up both mating surfaces and replace the gasket and the thermostat. Check to make sure you did not crack the thermostat housing or you may have another leak when finished. They are usually aluminum and break easily if too much pressure is applied or they are corroded and weak.

SOURCE: input shaft seal leaking after replace seal

Firstly, make sure the seal you fitted is the correct one, sounds silly but I have been given the wrong seals by parts people. It pays to check. Next, if you have fitted the seal correctly, and made sure that the seal is in flush with the housing, then it may be that the shaft is worn and may have a groove in it which was caused by the old seal. Pull the shaft out again and check for this groove in the shaft. If it does have the groove, you will need to find and purchase a steel sleeve which is fitted over the worn section of the shaft and ensures a nice clean and tight surface for the new seal to run on, thus stopping the leak.. Here in australia these sleeves are called "speedy Sleeves" and are available from any bearing shop and auto parts stores. The sleeve has a removable step on it which is used to tap the sleeve onto the shaft ( with a small hammer) and is then removed by twisting it sideways with pliers or sidecutters. The sleeve has a scored edge to help with this. Once you have removed the step, carefully clean up the edge with very fine grade rubbing paper ( wet and dry or fine emery cloth) with Oil applied to it to remove any sharp edges BEFORE you refit the shaft into the gearbox. This ensures that the new sleeve does not damage the seal. Re-assemble everything and test drive. As long as the seal is correct and fitted correctly and the sleeve is fitted correctly this will stop the leak. Have fun..

Where is the gearbox oil filler on a 5 speed Gearbox on a 2008 Polo GTi.


It will be about 1/2 way up on either side of the box housing. It will be a large bolt of about 20 mm to 25 mm, once you locate it open and pop your little finger in to see if the oil is just below if not then top it up with specified oil for your vehicle.

Oil going out from level gearbox


what gear box.
5speed manual "GL4 gear lube 4, can stink bad"
or autotmatic. (ATF pink fluid, and smells sweet)

what engine, some engines, leak oil and goes to the bell housing
then down hill (gravity and wind) to the exh. pipes.
what engine, the 2.7L V6? or G16 or J20? what?
and on calif cars they have calif exhuast, and fits up different,..
so no country stated, or if in calif. (exhaust questions....)

if the gear box leaks, (any)
we first check to see if its overfilled (Jiphphyboobs/syndrome)
if M/t the side plug inspection port, and transfer case.
if A/T box. (automatic) we read the operators guide, not guessing how and read that on a hot running engine we check ATF levels.
if overfilled the ATF foams and will leak and cause bearing failure.
air bubbles do not work right as lubrication... ever.
filled to hot mark on dip stick
unless the stick is missing, as is true on newer cars.

if trans leaks, say where it leaks.
top , bottom
front or rear.??

pretend we are blind. and win.

Hilux leaking gear oil


There is a plug on the side of the gear box. Pull plug out. You should be able to stick your finger into the hole and touch the gear oil. If not, check on your owner manual and see what type of oil goes back into the gear box. Fill it up until it start coming out of the plug hole.put plug back in, & back to riding.

Are when you go to the oil change shop???? Get them to show you where it is at, and get them to top it off for you.???

Whats the best way to drop the gearbox & transfer case?


remove the carpet on the floor, remove the gear shift lever as well as the 4wd shift lever, remove the drive shaft (both) remove the bell housing bolts, remove the starter, place a hydraulic lift jack below the gear box , then remove the wiring connectors , then remove the cross member , then pull the gearbox out from its positin, drop the gearbox very carefully, when gearbox is on the floor, make sure its sittin on a up right position so it dose not spoil any of the elctric connectors especially the reverse light switch...(that seems to be the easiest way to remove a manual land cruiser gearbox) hope that wil help....
