Severe Transmission Leak, even after front seal replaced.
I am in need of some help.
1997 5.2L 1500. Tranny fluid dumps out of the bell housing when shifted into gear(Reverse). Dropped the transmission and replaced the front seal and also the pump to housing seal. The old front seal was destroyed, the spring had worked its way out from behind the lip of the seal and gotten mangled. Everything else looked good, any ideas as to what else could be leaking? It is huge leak, similar to pouring the fluid on the ground straight from the bottle.
I read somewhere that it could possibly leaking from the vent on the top of the pump... Is this a real possibility? Any way to check that? What would have to fail to cause this?
Help please! Thanks,
