1997 town & country trans leaking oil from inside bellhousing
When I start the motor and let 2 minutes, oil will start leaking out from the inside the bell housing. But soon as I shift the trans into gear it stops leaking oil until I put it back in park and turn off the van. Then it starts to leak again after I turn it back off. Butt just a little bit. What could the problem be?
If it's oil, probably the rear main seal.
Again, I agree with tenspeed......can you tell if it is indeed motor oil? Or is it red (automatic transmission fluid) or very heavy, like sae90 manual gear oil?
Its red transmission oil for sure.
OK then there is a main seal around the shaft that comes out of the transmission, could be that. Most likely.
tranny cooler lines leaking?
Could be Jim, but I don't know that the cooler lines would be run through the bellhousing?
typically they dont leak when driving but when you stop there is pressure in the lines......it sprays everywhere. Theyre a pretty common Chrysler vans issue
Point taken Jim. I learned something from you there
