Image of Transmission fluid leak.



What would need to be done about this?

I have not changed trans fluid yet, and was wondering if I should run a leak stop prior to changing the fluid, or to change it and see if it stops leaking?

It doesn't leave any signs while parked of a leak, but I imagine while driving it leaks a bit.

Rear trannie seal, I've had mine replaced about 4 times, and its leaking again, I think its basically drop drive shaft, replace seal.

I can't find the 'rear transmission seal' on any parts store websites...

Is this something I could easily do at home?

I sprayed up the area, cleaned it up, we'll see how long it takes for A/T fluid to show back up.

I had the dealer do it. Cost like $90. Seal cost was $13 or something like that.

"Transmission output seal" on the receipt.

Replacing that seal is super easy. Do it yourself.

It's back after the 30 mile drive, nearly exactly the same look.


This whole measure, mark, drop thing sounds easier than it looks...

So basically I just draw a line, and then line up that line while installing?

And where is this rear seal at?

I'm not having a good mechanical/technical day today with the tranny.

I might be doing this as well since I already have to replace the rear diff pinion seal... Any way of checking other than leaking transmission fluid?

Thanks,
-Nigel

Update. I just looked under my truck because I was going to replace the transmission mount. Same LEAK as pictured above.

Just want to verify that this seal will fit the 2.3L auto before I order it.

I am on rock auto and I see the following:

More Information for SKF 13685

Transmission seal under Automatica transmission.


IF I scroll down to Transfer case I see output shaft seal however nothing indicating RWD...etc.. all for 4wd.?

Want to amek sure I get the right thing.


SKF 13685 Automatic Transmission Rear Seal | eBay


When looking at mine it has a boot that the shaft then goes into.


Thanks much,
-Nigel
