Oil coming in past the grease in the drive shaft?
haha unknowingly, whenever I went under and found grease or oil, I smeared it at all places. It's just a slight drip only when I drive the car so hopefully, it's a minor and self-healing one with the correct level of oil.automatic body undercoating
Today went to that garage and told the story. They blamed on the mechanic working on that day and loosened the drain and fill plugs. They have ramps so lifted the car high and hung on it so it came out loose. one good news there, my job is done without talking much. I will change the oil myself now with the correct washers and oil types/levels.Be interesting to see
Is this something we add to the oil? is there anything that we can spray or apply from outside to stop leaks as I am not comfortable adding anything external into the system.transmission leak stop
I ordered new ones.new ones
Thank you Shayne. Will first check by adding the correct oil as the leak is minimal, then try some non-invasive method like AT205, spraying it from outside, and if that does not work, thinking of the last option of injecting liqui molly/transmission leak stop into the system. There is one more final time-saving option of just replacing these faulty seals.around the hole maybe
Changed front diff oil, new fill and drain plug and washer and drove back home and checked for leak. Its leaking, its the seal thats leaking.transmission leak stop
Didnt find exact FSM but found youtube videos of older Landcruiser and they look similar so will try to apply same techniques. Just wanted to make sure if the part I am looking is the correct one needed. Also, I dont feel it needs to be addressed on priority as the car is driving perfectly, even the mpg is 24 per gallon. I will take time and sort it out.older models
I found this thread. There seems to be a lot of unknown IT sites and areas so I enquired with IT friends if they can sit with me and get this one set up on my laptop. I already purchased Haynes manual and other from ebay but not much use so this time I am planning not to buy anything. I sent a message to owner of this thread also to check if there is any direct link.link to that FSM?
