ATF Leak

Leak coming from bellhouse

Hey Scotty I got a problem that is driving me nuts.

This car was given to me with about 2 liters of ATF

There is leak coming from the bellhouse, specially when I accelerate, while idling I see no leak at all, but it could be a very small leak that is hard to tell.

I have replaced everything on transmission except Hydraulic Pump and Torque Converter

Front seal, Bushing and bolts with new washers on pump have been replaced.

Hydraulic pump was inspected and cleaned, with no signs of damage at all.

Overhaul was performed except on torque converter.

I have never seen a torque converter leak, could this be the problem? or could the pump leak from somewhere else?

No. 1-2

Oh, I have never heard of UV dye, I will make some research on how to use it and I will give it a try.
Thank you, I will let you know how it goes.
You are very helpful.



I've seen the converters leak, on the converter seals. I put in UV dye to find such leaks myself, but it's often VERY hard to see inside there to find the ultimate source of the green dye coming out
