I got my transmission done at a shop and noticed that it's leaking worst than when I brought it in, I'm just confused on why it's still leaking could it be from not having a flex plate cover on it? Where could it be leaking from? I replaced the fluid on it and it's leaking fresh so it couldn't be the old fluid I uploaded some pictures.

P.s I towed it home from the shop due to no registrations and drove it up into my garage and parked it and hasn't moved ever since.

I used the Blue Devil Transmission Sealer on a tip from the restoration shop. So far so good.

The very best trans additive story i have is to put a can of STP oil treatment into a four speed trans
The sycros mesh so smooth it is an amazing experience ( like butter )

Have never used it in an automatic trans though

Enjoy

Noticed a bid puddle under the transmission.  Haven't driven the car in months.  Strange that a seal gave out just sitting in the garage.

Get the car to operating temp and with the engine at idle check the level of trans fluid
You may just be over full and leaking
Worth a look

Enjoy

If you are down fluid you would have to get back to your trans rebuilding people

Enjoy

Frank,

The parts need to be used to work properly. The seals shrink slightly when the car sits this is normal. Cold weather could make it worse. Try Blue Devil Transmission sealer. It worked in my ‘69 and I just put it in my ‘64 that had all new seals but started to seep from lack of use. 

If the torus converter check valve is leaking, then the fluid will drain back into the transmission when sitting. The trans will overfill and leak.

Jeff
Please Keep us posted on the trans sealer you are using and your results for the longer haul
Never heard of that brand
It would be wonderful to know a product that would really work to seal the trans and prevent or reduce any leaking

My own experience that is very limited was not a good one
I bought a sealer for my power sterring years ago ( no idea the brand at this time ) and almost as soon as i added it all the fluid ran out of the power steering and had to replace the power steering unit in my 69 CDV

Enjoy

Just google it n Amazon and read the reviews.

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
