ok i put a used transmission in mt 98 cv. it started leaking so i put a new seal in it and it was still leaking. then i put another torque converter on it because the other one looked like it had been tampered with. even after all of that it is still leaking and i cant figure it out and no one else can either. its really frustrating and i need the car to get to work. so if anyone can tell me anything please get back with me!!!!!!!

thats my only guess, the torque converter that came with the tranny had some kind of sleeve on it and it looked like it had been messed with. so i put the ther tq in it but that sleeve might of messed the seal up. i just want to make sure it cant be anything else before i put another seal in it and it still leaks.

Hey out of curiosity how quickly can you pull and re-install the transmission now? I would think your getting pretty good at it. Sorry to here about your frustration.

Did you check to see if there is a burr on the convertor hub.You have to pull it apart to fix it .Grab a clean rag and put it around the convertor hub and turn it back and froth. If there is a burr you will feel it grab the rag. You will need fine sand paper to remove any burr if any. Use both hands and polish till the burr is gone then wipe down hub with transmissin fluid wet on your hand. Slide the new seal on the hub making sure you are buying the right seal and its fitting tight.Make sure when your installing the seal on the imput shaft that it is going in straight. As well when installing the convertor use both hands to (support) the convertor.Rub( transmission fluid )on the convertor hub DO NOT install the convertor hub passed the seal dry.

Hope I understood your first post right, here is my 2cents.

Silicone just doesn't work well for sealing the outside of the dipstick tube. If that's possibly leaking, replace the o-ring. You will need to unbolt the tube from the back of the engine - one of the bellhousing bolts holds the tube as you probably already know \:\)

The sleeve on the TQ sounds like it had a won hub and somebody stuck a sleeve over it. Personally, I think that if it's that worn, then the TQ should be replaced as I would suspect lotsa miles.

Leak possibilities in front - front seal, pump o-ring, or pump gasket. The front seal needs to be installed carefully and be sure that the little internal spring that goes around the inside to hold the rubber part is in place after you install it. It can get knocked out of place sometimes. As mentioned, the new seal needs to be lubed and installed straight. Also, wait until you are ready to install the tranny then install the TQ, don't stick the TQ in the unit and leave it hanging for a couple of days, it can distort the seal. Also, I know it sounds like a no-brainer, but be sure that you have the right seal for the application, you never know.

When you unbolt the front pump, there is a gasket that goes around the perimeter and there is a also a big 0-ring that goes around the circumference of the pump housing. The idea is that when you tighten down on the bolts, the o-ring wedges into place and the gasket seals off the back face of the pump housing. Both can be possible points of leaking, but both are very cheap in part cost, unfortunately lots of labor. However, if you have the tranny out anyway, it may be worth taking a close look to see if the leak is possibly coming from these.
