Busted front diff seal?
Posted 06 January 2004 - 11:40 AM
when he went to check the transmission fluid, it was above the ull mark 1/4 the amount (125% full) and it was brown with oil, Front diff oil? and it did not smell burnt.
We think the front diff seal finally broke.
so, how hard is it to replace the seal (If this is the problem)? it has some problems already, would this make it worth just getting a replacement Tranny?

My 3AT did the for mentioned fluid swap. It was as you say the seal between the diff and the tranny output shaft.
The failure was related to the bearing that holds the shaft.
The bearing went, the shaft wobbled the seal went then the front wheels locked up due to gear misalignment.
I would say it's tranny/diff time, but this is only my (and a couple guys at the time which told me their tales) expierence.

so this is something that you can't fix without ripping apart thewhole transmission?

This requires a total dismantle sorry, the tranny and the diff/tranfer case are all one unit.
Sorry I was not of much help
