  • Transmission fluid leak when pointed downhill

    Well this is difficult for me to simulate on jack stands.

    My 98 LSC has a tranny fluid leak from the frony of the pan area but only when pointed down hill. It has worked its way to a visible drip when full. Its the same running or sitting and does not appear to be pressurized.

    Do I recall the tranny dipstick tube being prone to leak? Any tips on how to inspect it? I'm due for a safety insoection so I guess I can set them on looking for it as much as I hate that idea.

    Yes, it's a common leak area. You should be able to trace it to the tube from under the car.

      I remember mine leaked at the base of the dipstick. I think I had to put on a new O ring....?
