    Clean the transmission's 2 pans and dust them with baby powder. The drip will reveal itself. Then come back and ask again.

    Hey, only trying to help. The baby powder is an old trick. You didn't give us mush to go on. Finding the leak is the first step to fixing it. Don't want help? Don't ask for it.

    Elvin, I once responded to a thread asking how to remove a shift knob. I posted the correct way to remove it - Shift to 2, grab with both hands, pull hard straight up, careful not to hit yourself in the nose.

    .....I was told to go F myself.

    I guess if something sounds simple or odd, someone's going to think you're being a smart ass.

    O ring in the 4pin connector in the over drive pan. You have to pull the pan to remove with out breaking it.
