Re: Trans Leak

The shifter area is very close to the output shaft seal. Are you sure it's not your shaft seal that's leaking?
The shifter shouldn't leak oil unless the tranny has been overfilled. Replacing the output shaft seal is easy, just remove the short driveshaft and there it is!

Re: Trans Leak

No not output shaft seal, is for sure from shifter. It will pour out if on steep incline like 'Launch Pad' in Moab. And I mean pour out. Not over full, infact I just added almost a quart of 90w oil today.

Re: Trans Leak

My best guess is that you have either lost one of the bolts that holds the shifter "tower" to the tranny, or the tower itself is broken. Pull up your carpet, remove the four 10mm bolts that hold the shifter boot to the floorpan, and have a look. HTH
