Hope someone out there can help me with this odd problem!
First off let me apologize for getting a little off subject since this
problem concerns my '85 suburban.
I pulled the suburban in the garage on a thursday and removed the heads
because of a gasket problem. Thinking I'd kill two birds with one stone,I
took the heads to the machine shop for a valve job. Six days after pulling
the heads(they were still in the machine shop)I came home from work and
noticed there was tranny fluid all over the garage floor. Not a pretty
site!It's like the tranny just puked!
After installing the heads and getting the truck back on road I figured
I'd drive it a couple of days and see if the problem would fix itself
(ha-ha). The tranny was removed and a new front seal was installed. Again,
killing two birds with one stone I also put in a shift kit.
Now I can drive the truck and the transmission seems to operate
beautifully however after driving the truck I have checked repeatedly for up
to two hours and the driveway is still dry,but when I look again in the
morning there is a 10" puddle of tranny fluid under the truck. It's like it
just sets for a while and then decides to puke.
Never heard of this happening before! Again it's a 1985 700R4. Any help
or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
