I've got a little bit of tranny fluid leaking where the tranny meets the engine. Any recommendations on how to fix this?
Thanks

If its the input shaft seal the only way to fix it is pull the trans. Check the easy stuff first. Filler tube seal, cooler lines, pull the hose off vacuum modulator and see if it has trans fluid in it.

If you can put up with the leak and it's small I'd let it go. Replacing the front seal will require removal of the transmission.

It's a small leak. I can deal with it. I was thinking about trying that Lucas tranny stuff. It's supposed to help seal and make the tranny shift better.

I've never used it but it can't hurt anything to try.
