Too much trans fluid
« on: January 11, 2019, 08:44:40 PM »

I noticed a trans leak and when I pulled the speedo drive to check it, trans fluid squirted all over the place.  Way over full.  Has anyone experienced anything like this before?

I'm guessing someone just filled it to the top? That is likely why it is leaking

There's a little diagram on the trans case next to the gear, showing the speedo gear as a dipstick.
Most autoparts stores have a big 'ol suction syringe, I think I got mine for $20, would allow you to pull out exactly the right amount of fluid
