Maybe your right,but for sure your not gonna need a torque converter,it could be a seal or a big O-RING for the pump

Manual transmission


There is a trans pump seal between the tourque converter and the pump. I would degrease the entire engine (including the trans)first and put some oil dye in the trans to see if the leak is actually comming from there. It's possible but unlikely.

Im leaking transmission fluid from the bell housing


Front seal is probably done for. Get a seal conditioning product from your local auto parts store. It may help .. but don't expect a fix and don't expect a big, long term improvement. The fix is drop the transmission and replace the seal. $1.50 for parts, $299.99 labor, I am guessing.

I HAVE a 2000 taurus with trans fluid leaking out of cover between oil pan and bell housing. what is it


Hi,

This will be coming from the front transmission to torque converter seal.
The transmission will need to come out and it will need to be replaced.

Thanks

Replaced front seal on my '97 Dodge Ram 1500, V6


Assembly of converter to trans and then tunit to engine? The torque converter must engage and slide into the front pump. The seal is easily damamaged if not properly fitted.Once the trans is against the engine the converter can be slid forward to bolt the flex plste.There should not be more than approx. 1/4 inch between the converter and trans bell housing if the converter is properly mated to the trans. Good Luck, Ned.

Transmission fluid leaking from bell housing when in gear.


If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.

You have a transmission front seal that has gone bad. The transmission will have to be removed and new seals installed.

Put in transmission in feburary.


you will still need add the proper type fluid to proper fill level, get under the truck, clean up transmission so you can visually monitor where the leak is coming from. Chock the wheels, emergency brake set, start and idle vehicle check for leaks. If trans is leaking it will probably be a front seal (oil will drip from small hole in the bottom of bell housing), pan gasket, loose cooling line to radiator, or rear tail shaft leak ( where drive shaft enters the trans.) Don't forget to check the lines for pin holes and the radiator for leaks.
