Just had Transmission oil and filter replaced and now it is leaking tranny fluid. This truck has never leaked anything. I took this truck into the dealer to get the brakes fixed and they talked me into getting the transmission fluid changed out. I should have never done that. I have a regular mechanic that has kept all my trucks fluid changed and in good order.
This truck has never leaked anything ever. And the paperwork I got back from the dealership said no leaks detected when I picked it up. When they did the service on the transmission wouldn't they have noticed the torque converter then being "Blue" from it getting to hot? They did a transmission service changing the fluid admitting they dropped the pan and now that I took it back (which was the very next day) because it is now leaking fluid that the torque converter may be gone and they want $1300.00 to go into the tranny to see what is wrong with it. There has never been a problem untill they changed out the fluid it has run solid and I do not have the money to put a new tranny into the truck.
I haven't even had it for a 100,000 miles I bought it used from them with 20K miles on the truck. I spoke to my regular mechanic and he said that it dosen't sound right that if the torque converter looks burned up it would have had not have had enough oil in it. They said the pump in the front of the torque converter could have gone bad. Remeber this truck has ran solid since I got it changing the oils regularly. Now I need a transmission? I think I am getting hosed! Can you help me what do you think and know about torque converters.
have the same problem?
