Drivetrain Front Pump Seal?

  1. I could use some advice. I have a stock '06 GT vert with 30k miles. Brought it into dealership for 30k service and they said i have a small tranny leak (automatic transmission). They showed me with the car on a lift and there was some tranny fluid on the bottom of the bellhousing, but I've NEVER seen anything puddle under the car. I've been keeping an eye on it for about a month and it stills looks to have a leak, but it still don't see anything on the ground. They said I need to replace the front pump seal. I'm afraid if i do that it may open up a can of worms, and I've also read other posts about some kind of overflow from this transmission. Leak seems to be small. The only weird thing I've noticed with the tranny is occasionally when I put it into reverse it will take a couple of seconds to engage and do it with a clunking sound, but it doesn't happen that often. Any advice is appreciated!
  2. Is your car FI, do you run it hard? The 5R55S trans has a vent line that empties into the front of the case. If you runt it hard it will vent a little fluid into the case. I think the Stealership is just trying to get you to pay for a trans rebuild myself. Get this kit from JDM and install it. If you still have a leak after the kit is installed then you can worry about the trans.
