I put the V on front ramps to change the tranny fluid today and when I crawled under I saw a little fluid on the tranny mount and at the rear of the case, where the driveshaft connects to the output shaft(prop shaft??). This really dropped my spirits....

I did the tranny swap, used Royal Purple Max ATF...pretty red color. I also saw that the bushings on the shifter were'nt seated inside the carrier properly so I fixed that too...quieted down the B&M shifter a bit!!!

Now it seems that I need to bring this to the attention to my dealership...I hate bringing up anything to them, but this isn't something I can do myself.

Anyone ever have a similar leak? What happened at the dealer? replacement? rebuild? This sucks...

You mean the tailshaft seal is leaking? Where the driveshaft goes into the transmission? If so, thats an extremly easy fix, just pull the driveshaft and swap the seals.

Tailshaft...yeah, that's what I meant. Thanks for the advice, I'll bring it up to my service dept.

I was almost hoping that it'd mean a new '06 tranny...updated synchros and such...

thanks,
