|Transmission leak on a 1973 Dodge Executive Sedan||Marci||9-16-17|
|Hi this this mt first time reading and posing on this awesome rv forum! I have a transmission leak on my 1973 Dodge ExecutiveSedan (body style). I purchased this amazing home of mine about 7 months ago. I wish I would have seen this forum months ago when I first saw the leak. I have asked for help if anyone I knew, would know how to fix a tranny leak. I have had no luck so I am reaching out for help!! I am new to this lifestyle and I want to learn all that I can. I am hoping the time my dodge has been sitting that the there are no greater problems at risk. I have not started it due to the leak. I read in a past forum (not on this site) that a transmission leak can start a fire if the engine gets started, is this true? And does anyone know how to fix a transmission leak on this 1973 Dodge executive? Your help is very much appreciated!! I really need to fix this and before it gets too cold with Fall and winter coming. Thanks|

|You need to figure out where on the transmission it is coming from before anyone can tell you how to fix it.|
There are several common leak areas. Inside the bell-housing, cooler lines and fittings, linkage, tail housing, rear seal etc.
The way you tell is to trace the leak upwards and towards the front of the car, you will find an area that is wet with oil but clean of dirt, then the forward and above item from that clean area is the leaking component.
From there I can tell you how to fix it.
