go to www.contour.org and get the best informed info from people who
have had this problem.... but i think that you have one screw holding
down the part of the tube that goes into the trans. remove the one screw
and then pull it out and then put new O-ring on the dip stick tube and
install and put the screw back in......
Hey Jim Thanks,
I got the filler tube out. Unfortunately the O-ring looks okay. I was hoping
it would be dry-rotted or torn which would confirm my suspicions that the fluid
was leaking from there.
I degreased everything and filled the fluid back up. When it leaked again, it
was obviously coming from somewhere on top. I crawled underneath and there was
about a cm gap between the 0-ring and the lip on the filler tube. There was
also a little red trail that originated from the o-ring. They look like they
should be mated up and after getting the tube out they do mate up perfectly.
The o-ring may have been okay but the tube got bent or such so they did not
seal well. I have cleaned up the tube and am going to venture out to find a
new o-ring. I don't know how much luck I will have on a Sunday. Might have to
wait till Monday and go to the dealer parts shop.
Mission accomplished. I got the O-ring and it was much thicker than the one I
pulled out and I was then able to tell the ribs inside had worn down.
Everything is back together. Yeah! The night I saw all that fluid just dump
out I thought for sure it was going to cause over a grand to fix. Fortunately
only 69 cents.
