I can't say for sure that your problem is similar to mine but I had the same
sort of problem with my 93. It started out as wet around the tranny and
after quite a long time began to drip. My regular mechanic identified a
couple of locations that were leaking on the tranny and suggested a tranny
To make a long story short, it turns out that the section of radiator
responsible for cooling the tranny fluid was clogged which causes the tranny
to over heat and blow out the seals. Unfotuanly the tranny shop didn't
realize this until after the seals failed a second time. The solution was a
to rebuild the tranny and add an external tranny cooler. It was a very
long and frustrating experience and for reason not explained here, I can
tell you I'll never use that tranny shop again.
I had this problem fixed for about $300.00. It was a seal on the
transfer case. Make sure they have the seal before you go. Make sure
they have in-hand. Once they remove the seal, they cannot put it back.
If they cannot get one that day, you are without a car until they do.
