You you either pinched the seal...or it is torn. If you are confident this absolutely isn't the case, then you have an internal Transmission failure causing fluid to be pushed out of the seal. That just happens to be a high pressure area with a fairly weak seal. Very common on Fords

Put in a used transmission from LKQ for the 2nd time and replaced input shaft seal both times, and when we shut car off its pouring fluid from tranny? Any ideas? Bad tranny?


Is the fluid leaking from the rear where you installed a new seal ? Or is it leaking from a different part of the transmission ?
If you can add more detail information about your vehicle: year, make and model.

Leaking transmission fluid


TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAKS,CAN BE FOUND AROUND PAN GASKET.CHECK PAN GASKET,IF IT LOOKS WET AND YOU SEE FLUID DRIPPING AROUND THE EDGE OF OIL PAN, REPLACE PAN GASKET, WHILE YOU REPLACING PAN GASKET REPLACE TRANSMISSION FILTER WHILE OIL PAN OFF.IF TRANSMISSION OIL PAN NOT LEAKING, CHECK TRANSMISSION OIL COOLER LINES GOING INTO RADIATOR YOU WILL LOOSE A LOT OF FLUID THERE ALSO TORQUE SHAFT SEAL WILL CAUSE HEAVY FLUID LEAK WHILE ENGINE RUNNING CHECK OIL COOLER LINES AND LOOK AT THE TORQUE AREA WHILE ENGINE RUNNING YOU WILL SEE FLUID POURING WHILE ENGINE RUNNING THE OIL PUMP PRESSURE WILL PUSH FLUID OUT AT THE LEAKING AREAS.

Oil leak at tail-end of 4 speed auto-transmission. How do I change the seal?


Before taking this job on yourself, call a few local transmission shops as found in the phone book and ask them for a price to replace the rear seal on the transmission. Lots of work and a lift is ever so handy in doing this type of job. Now when you tell them what you want, have them say it back to you. No matter what you actually say, they will give you a ballpark price to replace the rear seal on the engine to fix an oil leak cause that is what they heard you say. You want to replace the rear seal on the transmission, to fix a transmission fluid leak. This is much cheaper job than the seal on the engine.

Failing that buy a cheap service manual on CD over on eBay and do a search on www.youtube.com, some nice guy has probably put up a video of a rear seal change on a GM transmission product and they are all about the same.

Good Luck

My ford transmission has no leaks that i can see but i have to put transmission fluid in once a week??????????????? it runs fine but where is the fluid going?


It could be the rear main seal on the transmission where it mates to the motor. The motor may be burning off the leaking fluid before you can spot the leak. It could also be leaking out of the shaft seal as well, but you should be able to see tranny fluid all over the underside of the back of your car. You should be able to see it if its leaking from the rear main too, but like I said the motor could be burning it off before you spot it.

How much tranny fluid per week are we talking about? The rear main seal would require you to pull the tranny and then you pop the seal in, not too hard of a job unless you have a transfer case. Doing it in your driveway is not feasable tho because a tranny weighs a lot and I do not think you want to balance it on your chest in your driveway.

Tranny fluid dripping off the drive shaft still!


Hi!!

Check that the transmission is not overfilled, if OK, could be that the seal got damaged (which is very easy to do) when installed or when inserting back the drive shaft. I use the old seal to align the new one, a piece of wood and a rubber hammer to drive it in, always checking that is going straight. Before inserting the drive shaft, clean it good and lubricate w tranny fluid, that reduces the friccion when inserting it back.

Hope this help you fix your leak. click below if helpful. Good luck.

Transmission is leaking -- what are possible solutions? Leak is getting worse each week -- no slippage of gears. This is automatic w/overdrive.


clean the tranny bottom to determine whether fluid is coming from the gasket...if so you probably need you change the fluid and filter any way, you can replace that gasket then....make sure that it is tranny fluid, and not engine oil from an oil seal at the front of the tranny....if the leak is in the rear of the tranny replace the rear seal....good luck, hope this helps

Transmission fluid is pouring out between the transmission and engine is this a front seal leak?


Yes, it could be the front pump seal or even a cracked front pump ,either way the tranny has to come out.

All of the tranamission fluid is coming out in streams.


i did this on my 2000 f150 to replace the tail shaft bushing and seal (automatic transmission). there was nothing inside that housing to fall out other than tranny fluid. if you're going to replace the seal, i'd suggest replacing the bushing too. it's fairly cheap. when you get the tail shaft housing off, just take it to a tranny shop and have then take the old bushing/seal out the press the new ones in, they'll be less likely to damage the new bushing. hope this helps.

Oil leak


The Drive Shaft?! If it is the Drive Shaft it is an Easy Fix. You will need to Remove the Drive Shaft and Replace the Seal that is at the Very Rear of the Tranny. Check the Tranny Fluid. Tranny fluid should be your Leak. The Fluid is Red Right?
