C6 Behind a 6.9L Diesel ((Help))
 
Hey folks here is the Story

Trans went out so went to Scrapyard and bought a used one. 2 months later it started gushing fluid from the front of the trans.

Thought the worse so I went and picked up another. Had a kid install it and it immediately gushed fluid out the front.

When the kid pulled it back out he said he saw a crack in the Flex-Plate... Replaced that, and I finished the kids re-install. Gush from the front

Thinking he may have Damaged the seal I Pulled it, installed new Seal, and carefully re-installed it. Gush from the front.

Pulled it again thinking the cracked Flex-plate might have cracked the Torque converter I replaced it with the Original Tran Converter. Still gush from the front.

Pulled it again to Verify the Flex-Plate was installed properly? ( Only one way for Flex-Plate to go on.

This is where I am now Tranny on Jack looking for Suggestions as to what to check Next?????

Oh and by the way this is My Brothers truck in My Yard.

Bad pump to case seal, or crack in the front pump housing??? Stand the trans up in a 5 gal bucket or something to hold it up, and remove the pump... shouldn't be too difficult.

When you say 'out the front', is the leak coming from the dipstick tube maybe???

as you watch the fluid come out it comes between the torque converter and bell housing.
you can not see any cracks in Pump, the strange part is two transmissions are doing the same thing. the one that we pulled out and the New (used) one we put in.

could it be coincidence that the pump-to-housing seals are bad on both trannies??? or that the pump-to-converter seals are bad??? I'd be looking real close....install a dye into the ATF, run it & use a black light to locate the source of the leak...

using the same converter on both ? Maybe a crack in the converter:icon_confused:

Nope used the converter that came with the new one, then thinking something might have been wrong with it I tried one from the first tranny we pulled out. and still this leak
