E40D question for the ford gods

let a friend borrow my truck over the weekend. well my tranny started pissing fluid. he said when he looked under the truck at the tranny, the hole in the bottom of the bell housing was pouring fluid. so i inspected tranny lines just to make sure that they were not bad. pulled the tranny to see if maybe the pump or torque converter was cracked. everything looked good. my question is:
what would cause this?

there were also a few hard plastic pieces in the bell housing that looked like they used to be a seal.

another question concerning the small intermediate shaft.
should you be able to grab it and pull it completely out? i have an old c-6 that you can and a c-4 that you can't.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

that sounds like a good starting place [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] seriously, if it's pouring out that hole then it's not coming out of the vent, which leaves only the front pump seal as a place for a leak, assuming the convertor drain plug is not missing and it's not cracked, like you said. does there appear to be a seal where the convertor slides into the front pump? i don't have my rebuild manual here with me, but i wouldn't be surprised if that shaft just slides out. i assume it's the convertor clutch engagement shaft you're talking about? i've never pulled this e4od (yet!) so I'm not the best source for this info, but I guess I'll know for sure when I yank this pos out and replace it with a np435 [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: E40D question for the ford gods

i really appreciate it. the tq drain plug was in and tight and after looking over the torque converter, i didn't see any type of crack. what are the possibilities that the gasket around the pump to housing is bad? Would it leak that much? thanks again

Re: E40D question for the ford gods

The small shaft will just pull out that is no big deal. Muddy is right about the t/c seal. You should see a seal where the t/c slides in, and yes this is the pump so it is the high pressure part of the tranny so when it leaks it leaks good.

That tranny sad to say is a bit costly to rebuild.

Re: E40D question for the ford gods

I just recently had this happen to ME. After I let the tranny cool and replaced the fluids, all was normal. I took it in to the dealer and they serviced the tranny, not finding anything wrong. I had them add a heavy duty cooler and replace the filters.... both screen and magnetic.

So far nothing else has happened..and that was 100 towing miles ago.
