    Small Leak ???

    My wife says there's a small leak coming from the transmission but right now there doesnt appear to be any loss as far as the dip stick is showing. Is it possible that this could be the converter. We just had it serviced at the dealership almost a month ago while I was home and just after I left she had a poly xmsn mount put on due to the stock one finally failing. What should she be looking for as far as the converter possibly being the culprit? Any suggestions or advice is appreciated.

    There is a dye you can purchase that when exposed to the black light will show where the leak is coming from. I take it's leaving a puddle where she parks it then?

    The converter itself shouldn't leak. But maybe the seal that the converter slides into is leaking. Any clues as to where the leak is, Front, back, left, right, top or bottom of trans?

    If they were lazy and din't get all of the old gasket off it will leak and I have had them perfectly clean and still leak. depends on the gasket used but most rubber and cork end up leaking eventually. The stock one is the only one that seems to stay perfectly dry on these freakin 4l60e's

    It was serviced at a dealership maintenance shop so I'm assuming a oem cork gasket was probably used. The car is being taken in monday for an additional noise that just showed up. Apparently now the car has a squeel upon acceleration, they'll test drive the car with her and I guess let her know what might be wrong with it.

    Tell them to clean all the fluid off the trans pan and anything alse covered before they drive it and then when they get back they will know where they leak may be comming from. I would say it is common sense buy then again I have had individuals at my local dealer do side work for me and I usually end saying...Really???? lol

    I'll make sure the wife does this, it does seem like common sense but better safe then sorry. I'm sure she'll get a blank stare when she brings it up.

    lol yea thats about the reaction one of the techs had when he had to tell me he bent the control arm trying to change a ball joint. I asked him if he heated it first and I got the look... and of course no compensation for the bent control arm either. Just the stare.
