How do you know it is leaking? A lot of Ford transmissions use the same fluid as the transfer case. Is there fluid coming out of the air bleed on the transfer case? Is the transmission steadily loosing fluid?


The transmission fluid is not even registering on the dip stick and now the transfer case is over capacity,this is what AAmco tells me and of course they want to rebuild my transmission

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

Most likely the tail shaft seal has failed or the transfer case input seal, I would try a different shop, AAmco wants to do a rebuild so they can cover their tails if something goes wrong.


Thanks for your input.After I left AAmco I took it to the Ford dealer just waiting to hear what they find. I hate to pay the high price of a dealership but it still may be less than what I would have paid AAmco for a rebuild that I didn't need.
