    the guys at the shop, including owner, looked at it immediately. They couldn't figure what was going on-said all they could do is pull it back out Monday and look into it further and try to find out why its leaking. Said since its doing it even without running there may be a cracked case or something. confusing, and doesn't sound promising...

    thats a bitch, there must be something seriously wrong thats not getting noticed, fucked up pump maybe? almost sounds like you need to bite the bullet and get a new tranny.

    ya--that's what i'm afraid of--not easy to justify that cost w/90000 miles...especially after having spent 1750.00 to have it rebuilt 1.5 years ago....

    Sounds a little more than just a trashed bushing or gasket. The pump case itself could be cracked or the pump drive on the tq converter cracked. Seen that happen a few times but would cause the same situations you are describing. Still not a whole tranny, I would hope although that someone able to diagnose or build a trans would catch something like that when it's apart.

    This is sounding like a similar problem that I had with a Jeep Grand Cherokee after I pulled a few tree stumps out. I pulled the tranny out 3 times before I figured out what the problem was.


    I put the torque converter on a vacuum with soapy water and found a 3/4'' crack on the neck of the converter. By the time I figured out that the converter was junk, the tranny was now in need of a rebuild too.

    thank you 02blkws6-another vote for cracked TC. Where in IL you from? I grew up in Emington (pop: 150 ). Was right between Bloomington/Normal and Joliet on I55--hour either way.

    ok--cars back and 9hrs (only about 10 miles) into no more leaking!!! You guys rock--They replaced TORQUE CONVERTOR. Garage owner said trans. shop supposedly pressure tested tc when it was there first time having all this sealing done, but had a skeptical tone/look too. Long ass time to get it figured out---but hey--got it back today (75 degrees!) with t-tops off!!!! You guys know how great that is! but back to 55 high tomorrow...got it in the nick of time--for 10 miles...

    cool spikito! yeh--got it back for now (crossed fingers!) Looking for a nice day to get it cleaned up--got nasty at the shop--and trans fluid all over the bottom and exhaust makes for an unpleasant smell! And, again, not sure if i'll be free; no set plans, but if i'm not doing anything it would be fun to lend ya a hand over break!
