Hey guys

i just went for a quick drive and when i stopped at the lights i saw smoke pouring out of my bonnet so i pulled over and had a look and it is dripping tranny fluid everywhere it seems to be coming from the torque converter housing and leaking onto the exhaust.

The joys of buying a cheap used car! :(

Get it up on a hoist, in 10 seconds you will be able to see all the problems.

Clean it first, then run till you see clearly where the oil is coming from.

I have given it a good clean and the only place i can see oil coming out is at the bottom of the torque converter housing.

So i am guessing it is the rear main seal around the crank would i be right?

Thanks
