Transmission Leaking

Hey guys, i got got back from a trip out to the mud pits and I lost all my tranny fluid (now i mean like 12 quarts in a few hours) The mechanics at the local shop says it is a rear main seal leak but they were wrong. I know it isnt engine oil but I dont have any manuals on my tranny (it is the E40D) I have heard this tranny sucks, but mine is still turning my wheels so I just need to know if it is just a seal I was fix it. It is right in between the torque converter and the engine block? It is not the rear main so i have no clue what it could be but i do know it is tranny leak. Please help Thanks guys

Re: Transmission Leaking

**I just reread it & saw "between the torque converter and the engine block".**

If it's on the FRONT of the TC, it sounds like the TC is cracked. If it's just coming off the edge, I agree with BRONCOMANIA. After you've fixed it, replace the filter & fluid (including draining the TC).

Re: Transmission Leaking

Must be the seal between the converter and the front of the trans case, its just rolling down the bellhousing to the inspection plate.

Re: Transmission Leaking

I lost about a quart towing a FRIEND off the highway and mine looks to be coming from the front seal. 112k plus, it is about time.

Havack!

This is FORD country. On a quite night yu can hear a Chevy rust.

Re: Transmission Leaking

See? You shouldn't do crazy stuff like that with such a delicate vehicle![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] I once loaned a guy a compression tester (which he never used) and he stole a can of Liquid Wrench from me...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Transmission Leaking

I once borrowed a compression tester from a guy but he didn't give me all the stuff to use it. If money(LWrench) is left at a table(my house) and the waiter(me) puts it in his pocket did he steal it?

The main difference in my truck and yours is your truck is a toy and my truck is a truck!

Re: Transmission Leaking

It depends on the restaurant: if it was at the Spaghetti Warehouse where you get some service for your money (the side of Hwy. 78 at midnight), it's his money (shackle); if it's Burger King where you have to fix your own drink (your house), he (you) stole it.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] But I may be moving to your neighborhood soon, so I'll come beat it outta ya.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Hey - When are we gonna get MY truck stuck? ...off-road, I mean!
