    Fluid leaks frum...

    between the bell housing and the trannsmission. would this be a pros project or cons.

    I might be wrong but I'm thinking it can be the release bearing in the bell housing.

    Any suggests or comments are well accepted.

    THANKS

    Its one of two things:

    Either the clutch slave cylinder or the input shaft seal.

    If its a red colored oily fluid its ATF, if its a clear/yellow/dirty liquid that doesn't smell like anything then its brake fluid from the slave cylinder.

    Either way you have to pull the trans to address the issue. If its the slave its an easy fix, just buy a new one, and hopefully brake fluid didn't get on the clutch. If its the input shaft seal, the entire transmission has to come apart to gain access to it.

    Okay, for instance I just had my transmission rebuilt because of a cracked counter shaft. I provided them with a new counter shaft and most of the upgrades you can get for the T56.

    Would it be possible that there is a warranty for the work the shop did to have my car repaired through them?

    If its the input shaft seal thats leaking (meaning ATF) then I'd say definitely. Replacing the front input shaft seal is definitley supposed to be included in the rebuild, so if its leaking, its likely that they either didn't bother changing it or damaged the seal during installation.

    Well, So far I can tell you that the Dot 3/4 fluid is leaking while trying to bleed the master/slave cylinder.

    Moving forward, whats my best bet for my broke self to get my car on the road for the most decent and sufficient way so I don't have to spend on it for a long time.

    Well, if the slave is leaking, you'll have to pull the transmission out and replace it. Costs about $130 for a new GM slave, and of course your labor to do everything. And then if you see that the input shaft seal is leaking/wet when you pull the trans, you can take it back to the shop that did the work and have them replace it under warranty (if there is one).
