I own a 95 EF series II Falcon, and was changing the transmission fluid and noticed a small oil buildup on the transmission case, coming from the transducer. So I pulled it out, and found that the internal seal must have deteriorated, as transmission oil was flowing thru the transducer and out the wires that connect to the speedo, and pooling in the plug that connects the transducer to the wiring loom.
My question is, how likely is the transducer to fail in that condition, at the moment the speedo is fine, no flickering or incorrect readings. The advice I have gotten so far is that you can't tell how long it'll last, but it'll fail eventually. My other question is, where is the best place to get one from? I know they aren't exactly cheap, wondered if anyone knows the best place to pickup one. Preferably not a second hand one that'll do a seal like this one has, ie not a wreckers.
Any info would be much appreciated, I'm not mechanic of the year so if anything I have said is crap, tell me, but that's my understanding of the way it works, and would like some info from anyone who has had the same problem or seen it.
