did vent relocate on tf999: have some ???????????
The tranny sucked water in again for the thrid time so i had enough of flushing it. I took it to the local tranny guy and told him what i wanted done. He understond the problem and said no big deal. Ok here is what happened. After i got it back i drove it for about 5 miles stopped to look for leaks and found a mess under the jeep. Not my problem so i brought it back. The guy looks under the jeep and says kick me in the ass. Ok so it was a stupid problem. It ended up that the new vent hose was lower then the top of the tranny. No problem re route the line then drive off. I go back to my brother in laws to finish up his EZ locker (which works great and is another story). Look under the jeep no new oil, lift the hood nothing. Great, feeling good. Finish the rear, open the garage door and lets go try them both out. Mine shifts fine, drives fine, put her in four low and go play. My brother in law has no problems. What a day to have but feeling really good. This morning take my jeep for a ride to wawa and get breakfast. Look under the jeep, tranny fluid (what the f&^$). Ok it came out of the vent. Ok here are my questions. Is this common? If i route the hose right under the tub will that help? Should i just go through the tub and mount it on the floor up the firewall? I am sure some one else had this problem. Sorry about it being long but i had too. I would bring it back to him but i dont like other people drilling holes in my jeep to run lines so i want to do it. .
