Re: '91 sport help
Keep a very close eye on your transmission fluid. I had the same thing happen to me. The first time, my trans dipstick was loose, and when I went up a steep hill, it kicked trans fluid all over my exhaust, and the smoke came up primarily from the firewall in the engine bay, but also noticeable under the vehicle. I added fluid, and kept an eye on it. No leaks.Then a month later, going down the interstate, smoke was rolling out the back. Blew a front trans seal. It'd only smoke once the exhaust got hot enough, but there was a noticeable drip of fluid under the car, and white smoke coming up from the firewall. The smell is unique. It's a thick smell, that sort of burns your nose like burning plastic would. It'll make you naseous. For me, turned out to be a blown front seal on the transmission. Not an expensive fix if you do it yourself, but it'll be time-consuming. I "fixed" mine by putting in a tablespoon or so of brake fluid into my transmission fluid. Swelled up the seal enough to make it stop leaking. I was going to replace the transmission, but it's been a month or so now, and I've had this thing all over the interstate, mountains, etc, with no issues. While more than likely a temporary fix, it seems like it'll last awhile. Of course, I wouldn't do that to yours just yet, especially if yours is in good shape. First, track down what is causing the smoke. When the car is cold, check for fluid on the exhaust, or residue. Or while smoking, check for fluid drips. It should be easy to track down.--JackATTN: For some reason, the WYSIWYG function is not working. The forum is not recognizing my spacing and thusly makes it seem as if I am terrible at placing indentations and seperating my paragraphs. While this is a blatant lie, my computer does not recogize this. It would appear as if I need to upgrade to Explorer 7. I will upgrade this evening. Until then, please excuse my lack of spacing. Thankyou.
