Ok. Here we go, lol First question. Is the fluid ONLY scootin' out from under the lip on the TRANSMISSION PAN. No where else? Yep, we wiped her down good and then ran her till she was good and warm, changing all of the gears. Low and behold. Drip drip drip. Funny that's where I told the other two mechanics where it was coming from, but I was told to change the gasket.
Question 2 Are you actually seeing it? Or are you just seeing juice everywhere after you shut him off and look? I'm seeing it drip out of this area were you see the finger yes. And if the car is left on and running in park it's a nice steady drip:-(
***The pan. Once it's removed, it's gonna need to be straightend, so that the gasket surface is Perfectly Flat, as it was originally. Or you are gonna need to obtain another!
What do you mean by this? There is no damage to the tranny and it was wiped out super clean before the gasket was put on. I do have a back up gasket though :-)
***I know this is a pain, but did you lay the pan on a flat surface---Like a storm door glass, and check it for straightness?
Good question. IDK the ex cleaned it out
****That leak is from front seal so trans must come out. From pics engine oil pan and the plate where it is leaking is cover to torque convertor. Suspect SeaFoam cleaned out goop from seal and the leak started. Bummer
Does that mean the whole motor coming out?
