trans oil leak

ok, wierd problem. i had transmission oil leaking into the cabin of my ef. what happened was the seal at the back of the gearbox was leaking, which has since been fixed. however there are 'spot welds' around under where the console sits and there're some gaps where the transmission fluid is being flicked up into the cabin.

the guy at ford spares here in canberra said i need to get some underbody deadener to spray underneath to seal up the gaps, which i've yet to see for myself, but has anyone else had this problem???

it's pretty wierd. the other thing the repco guy who fixed it said was that b/c it's an old transmission it will leak. is that true? cheers.

ps. this problem really sucks because my car is currently stripped on the inside because i don't wanna ruin the new carpet i bought for it!

Re: trans oil leak

Never heard of it getting into the cabin! Someone else may be able to confirm this for an EA-EL, but the hump where the shifter bolts onto was screwed down on the earlier models (up to XF). Sealer (putty-like stuff) was used to seal the gaps.

Just cos the tranny is old doesn't mean it should leak, but it does increase the chances!

Re: trans oil leak

Ummm, just read down a few posts further, the hump is spot welded in. bugger. Ideally, you would apply the sealer from underneath the car, but with the tranny in place there would be bugger all room. So if you do it from inside the car, use some prepsol or similar wax and grease remeover to get rid of as much of the auto fluid as possible before sealing it with deadener. This will reduce the chances of any more fluid getting in by ensuring the sealer sticks!
