Hi Cornate . It sounds like your rear main oil seal has gone . Not a cheap job . Judge how serious it is by topping up your oil level to the correct level and reset your trip counter . Check your oil level weekly and top up and work out how much oil is being used/lost (Per litre / miles) . Regards VW Audi tech

Dont waste your time and money trying to use a transmission stop leak product, they don't work on large leaks, you say the leak is excessive in this case the you must remove the transmission to access and remove the torque converter, after you have removed the torque converter carefully inspect the torque convert imput shaft for wear and also you will need to visually inspect the transmission front pump bushing for wear also, I have seen it all to often people just replace the seal thinking it was just a seal failure, well more times than not there is a reason for seal more than just the age of the seal, excessive wear on trans pump bushing and torque converter imput shaft is usaully the cause, check and repair those as good practice during this repair unless you just like to do the repair over again for free... also check the torque converter run out, sometime when they are repaired they are welded back together somewhat crooked which will cause it to spin off of a true center, this will cause immediate damage to transmission. Check also your engines crankshaft end play for looseness this can cause wobble which will transfer to transmission causing this problem as well... do the repair thouroughly and who ever does it for you have them check all that I listed and you should get a good repair which will last without issues.... please rate my help thanks...

SOURCE: torque converter will not turn after transmission

When installing a torque converter there are two separate steps for two separate shafts with two different sets of splines.You must first turn the torque converter when on the input shafts until you feel Both steps engage one at a time.And with each step the torque converter will go deeper into the bell housing.To tell if you have caught each of the steps correctly you will be able to easily turn the torque converter,even when the trans and engine are pulled up tight.There will even be a gap between the flex plate and torque converter.What ever you do don't use the starter to get the torque converter all the way in.Take out the two bottom bolts of the trans and replace them with 1" longer ones.Then remove all the other bolts from the housing.Slide the trans as far back on those two bolts as you can until the torque converter will turn easily again,then turn while pushing in toward the trans until you feel the converter slip in that last step.Slide the trans back up to the engine and make sure the converter still spins freely,then finish your install.My first trans I literally broke the transmission housing by not fully seating the converter.Hope this helps?

I have a 2003 Dodge Neon se there's a major oil leak between the engine and transmission how do I fix this


Check that the oil leak is not engine oil coming out before the bell housing ( sump gasket) If the oil is coming out of the bell housing inspection cover then it means box put and either flywheel off for a rear main seal or torque converter out for a seal in the box or converter.. If it is a sump or rear main seal check the engine oil level first and the PCV valve operation as excessive oil level and sump pressure will cause the engine side problems that you can fix without removing the box.

I'm not sure about what gasket to check, but I've always left my manual tranny's connected to the transaxles and removed the axles at the transaxle. This made simpler by popping the ball joints out, thus allowing the hub assembly to swing away. Hope this helps.

When you add tran fluid it makes your oil level go up


If you mean engine oil level, impossible! If the transmission oil seal or the torque converter were leaking the oil would run out of the bell housing. There is no way it could force its way into the engine, it would have to half fill the bell housing and then get through the rear crankshaft seal.

Hi Craig,
I'd suggest that the oil seal which seals between the torque converter neck and the gear box casing is damaged and will need replacing. The job seems simple but in fact can result in breaking the gearbox oil pump, when the torque converter is refitted to the gear box. the neck has to align with the gears inside the gear box and the oil pump, if the torque converter is not fitted correctly the damage I've mentioned will take place when refitting box.
If you would like to proceed let me know.

My automatic transmission shifts hard,slips and sometimes overdrive dont work ,other times its perfect. i put 1/ 2 qts.of fluid per week but has no apparent leak


Are you checking the fluid in neutral? You need to be.You need to pull codes.The leak is most likely the transmission cooler line at the radiator end.

Where is the oil actually leaking from? If it is from the bottom of bell housing the leak is from the oil seal on the shaft at the back of the torque converter. This is transmission out job to get at it. It is best to have this fixed as the low fluids that will result from the leak will result in poor torque converter performance and then to worn gear clutches ruining the whole transmission. As an interim measure it is possible to top up the autobox when it gets low by adding the right (really important that it is right) fluid via the transmission dipstick tube (NOT the engine oil dipstick tube).

How do I check the fluid in the bell housing on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


The fluid that is inside of your torque converter, which is located in the bell housing is your transmission fluid.. If your tranny fluid level is good, then the fluid inside of your torque converter is good...Now if you are leaking fluid from that area, it could be either your front seal that is inside the bell housing, or your rear main oil seal......

Obtain a fault code from the obd plug, go from there. If there are no strange noises then control unit is faulty. Stupid thing- is the fluid level ok?
