August 3, 2004I have a 94 f-150 with a 4.9 6cyl, and 5 spd manual trans. The trans is leaking a little fluid its not alot, but it is enough to p!ss me off. I thought it was all coming from the drain plug so I drained everything and put some pipe dope on the threads and filled it back up and it fixed that, but it also is coming from some other place. Is there anything that can be put in with the gear oil on a manual trans that may seal up a small leak? Thanks in advance for your help..
August 4, 2004There are 3 small rubber plugs at the top of the shifter plate. Check to make sure those are in good conidition. If they haven`t been replaced, now would be a good time to do so. Ford had a TSB on them and called for them to be replaced.
August 4, 2004So will for replace the for free if they are bad? And if so even if it is more than 10 years old? Or would it be best for me to just do it myself?
