mad EA Fairmont Ghia....New gearbox??

Hi All,

I have a large problem.. I think the tranny oil cooler is leaking (thats the one coming from the main radiator right) Pipes are damaged.....and bit of tranny oil around.....and the gearbox was making alot of noise metal on metal tapping and keeps sliping in and out of gear all the time? No fluid left.....Where does the tranny fluid go in??? Anyone know where i can source some of that metal piping or can i block it off????

I have a seperate Engine oil cooler at very front in front of main radiator...Cant find were the pipes that come off that go??? No oil coming out anywhere!!!!1

Apprieciate any help possible!!!!!!

Its all getting really frustrating.........Need help.....
Thanks in advance...

Re: EA Fairmont Ghia....New gearbox??

what model is it exactly, what tranny do you have?
i had a C4 in my futura ghia and the problem was actually my trans pan was leaking...
If you give me a little more info, i might be able to help you.

as far as the fluid filling goes... you put it in the same tube you check level with...

you can use 3/8 tubing from auto parts stores - high pressure , with hose clamps
you can byp[ass radiator and just use front cooler , but maske sure its getting air flow - in front of radiator
