2001 Ford F350 Fluid Leak and flashing overdrive off light
2001 FORD F-350
I have a transmission fluid Leak. It leaks some where in the front and drips from the inspection cover. I not sure if it is coming out of the front seal or not. It only seems to leak after start and stop traffic. Recently I took about a 250 mile trip. After about 125 miles into the trip I stop at a rest stop. I looked and there was no fluid leaking. I drove another 100 or so miles on the interstate and then the last 25 miles of stop and go city traffic. When I arrived at my destination it was leaking. The return trip was the same thing. Today I drove about 25 or 30 miles with several stops. The first stop no leak, second stop some leaking and by the time I arrived home steady drip. The first stop was after highway driving. It does not seem to affect the tranny performance. Howerver it keeps me worried. This is a remanufactured transmission that I had to have put in at 52,500 miles.
I am not sure if this related. But my overdrive off light flashes when the truck is idling in park.
have the same problem?

If you have fluid coming from under the inspection cover, there's only a few places for it to come from, the torque converter seal, from around the front pump housing, or from under the bolt heads for the pump housing.
