I have notice that my trans was leaking a bit. Actuall had a small
puddle of fluid every where I parked.

I went to Jiffy Lube, they did my flush. They said that my bolts were
loose and they tightened them down a bit. Guy said that he got more
than one turn on all of them!!

I have 40K and had the system flushed at 30K.

Questions:

Is this normal??

Is this a sign to replace the trans pan gaskets?? 3 I believe: big pan,
small (OD gear) pan, and acumiliator piston (rt side of trans).

Am I OK with just tightening the bolts, or is this just a few month fix??

How hard are the gaskets to replace?? Looks like there might be some
cross member issues.

If you have done a flush it'd not be a bad idea to drop the big pan and replace the filter and gasket.

The crosmember does have to be dropped but that's no big deal. So long as it's the large pan that's leaking just drop it and put a new gasket on there and put just a bit of rtv on the gasket surfaces and install it.

You shouldn't have any more problems.

I took a closer look at it today as it is still leaking like crazy.

The leak seems to be comming from a spot on the passerger side of
the trans. Right above the small 4th gear pan. feels like rubber.

Any ideas? I am loosing about a 1/4 quart a day. Is this that
accumulator thing I heard of? I need pictures if you got them.

Please help.

Wow the dealer was actually nice. Did not even have to ask if the
repair was covered under warranty. In and Out in an hour. 8)

I tell you what though, my transmissing is FLUSHED. With all the fluid I
went thru it must be clean in there.

Special thanks to Jiffy Lube for topping me off every other day :)

I have a PDF with pictures and repair procedures for the less fortunate.
Where can I post it.

Amigo 2k. Maybe you can update the FAQ's with this. That is where
I got a lot of the info anyhow.
