    Fluid is leaking from where the starter is connected to the backhoe. Should there be a seal between the metal, and also there is a machined out rectangular area how does it seal with that hole there?

    Should be a seal for converter cover. See what I can find.

    Im looking online for a manual to get a part number for that now but am unsucessful. So this seal runs between the starter and the metal where it bolts into the engine area?

Oil leak seem to come from starter. What can it be - main bearing oil seal?


Oil leaking around a starter is usually one of three possible things.
If it is motor oil, then suspect the rear main seal.
It it is auto trans fluid, it could be from the transmission front seal or the torque converter
If you have a manual transmission, it could be clutch fluid leaking from the slave cylinder, or a leaky front seal from the transmission.

What works best as a temporary fix from a front seal leak in tranny chevy 1500 95


if it is a new transmission and leaking right from the start, there's most likely nothing you can do other than replace the torque converter support bearing behind it and the seal ,
if its been rebuild, I have seen the pump bolts loosen due to improper torque and the symptoms are the same and no sealer will work,
if its been a good trans and just needs some help, give it a fluid change with a new filter and add lucas trans seal and anti slip to the system and you should be fine in no time, maybe even another 10K miles.

A leaking automatic transmission, is that sign of major trouble for an 89 Wrangler Jeep?


How long has it been leaking? If the transmission ran low on fluid for some time, that could lead to big trouble. If it was kept above the add mark at all costs, then a seal or gasket should end your worries.
The location of the leak is important. If it happens to be a front shaft seal that leaks (fluid would be gathered behind the lower inspection plate, on the bottom front of the transmission), then the transmission would have to be pulled out to replace that seal. But other leaks like a pan gasket leak is pretty easy to fix.

My son has been doing something called doughnuts?in his car .so has split the main feeder pipe .i have changed that .but now there is fluid dripping from somewhere behind the engine could this be something...


dougnuts are never a good thing. the front seal on transmission could be leaking,if so the fluid will be red.it will drip down between the engine and transmission. if so, the transmission will need to come out fo r a replacement of front transmission seal. if it's clear fluid,it may be a bad steering rack. if it's black oil, it could be a bad rear main engine seal. if bad rear main seal,that transmission will need to come out for replacement of rear main engine seal.a abd rear main engine seal will also leak down between the engine and transmission and be black oil. check for color of the fluid leaking to give you a starting point to diagnose what to look for. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Ford mondeo 1.8 td diesel, the problem is the power steering fluid is leaking, when i check it look like it was coming from the middle part of the radiator.how can i fix it and what parts do i need to get...


Have a look at the power steering fluid cooler it is just in front of the radiator behind the front bumper. The coolers corrode and leak. Also the seals can go, check for fluid leaking out of the boots at the track rods. Try this procedure :--- 1)Trace the source of the leak. Use a mirror on an extended handle to follow the puddle of fluid on your garage floor to the power steering system. Look on the hoses and gaskets to find from where the fluid could be leaking. 2) Add power steering stop leak additive to your power steering fluid. Lucas Power Steering Stop Additive is 100 percent guaranteed to stop seal leaks. In older cars, the seals shrink, causing leaks. The stop leak makes the seals swell to their original size. 3) Use gasket sealant if the gaskets are old and leaking. Sealant, such as Permatex, is resistant to engine fluids, and will help repair a leaky gasket. 4) Replace the gasket, if the gasket sealant does not work. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

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.

Fluid leak around starter


It may be a rear crank seal, or oil from the torque converter (automatic) or the input seal on the transmission. Check your fluid levels in your engine and trans. A visual inspection will help also. you could remove the inspection panel on the bottom of the trans bell housing. As for the clunk I would be leaning towards more of a starter issue for that.
