Author Topic:   tranny fluid leak
posted May 21, 2003 11:11 PM
my powerglide is pushing fluid out of the dipstick. It has done this since i had it. it has only 4 races on it since a rebuild. I run a cooler that is about 5" x 10". I am going to put on another cooler that is larger and mounted in front of the radiator. the seal inside the dipstick is good. what is causing the tranny to build pressure? i race the next 4 saturdays so i dont want to pull the tranny out. this is also not a leak that will run the tranny out of fluid, it just causes a little smoke in the corners.

Make sure that your vent isn't plugged. It's on the top passenger side. You may have to drop the crossmember, and lower the back of the tranny down, but you should be able to get to it without pulling the tranny. Hope this helps.
