[DML] Re: Found a new tranny leak

Manual or automatic? 

If it's an automatic, they all seem to leak at the cable entry.

If it's a manual that would involve removing the back cover of the 
trans (can be done in the car) and driving out a couple of rollpins 
to take the linkage apart to replace the shaft seal. It also involves 
wrestling with the detent ball and spring. That's a pretty strange 
leak since it's way above the static level of the oil in the 
transmission. Are you sure it isn't overfilled? 

At any rate - if it's not leaving huge puddles on the floor it's 
probably not worth the effort.
