tranny questions

I've read you shouldn't buy a bus with a leaky tranny but too late for that anybody have any tips?

How bad of a leak is it?

Maybe dont worry about it, just keep an eye on the fluid. I have a vary slow power steering fuild leak & a coolant leak that I dont worry about.

leaky tranny

maybe check and see if you can tell where its leaking. if its leaking where the driveline goes into the rear out put shaft on the tranny its probably just the rear seal. maybe the tranny fluid pan gasket is leaking ???? just a couple ideas. good luck john

I seem to put about a gallon of ATF in mine whenever I move it, but I think it's all dripping out around a leaky pan seal. I think. I keep telling myself. I hope.

Can you burn tranny fluid in a diesel engine? It may soon become cost competitive with diesel fuel....
