    95 dodge ram 1500 4x4 360 motor


    where the tranny and motor meet it is leaking fluid where the dust pan is, the fluid is leaking down there onto the ground, it is leaking onto the oil filter to. the puddle is about 6x9 and it drips around 1/2 quart after plowing a little and around 3/4 quart every time we plow hard.

    i am told it is the front tranny seal, or bearing or pump. has anyone ever had the problem i just said, im sure you have if you are a dodge owner haha

    also the tranny was rebuilt 15k ago but shouldnt these parts be replaced when it was rebuilt, or some shops prob dont replace everything.

    Type of fluid would help. Red Fluid = Tranny, Brown Fluid = Engine Oil. To me it sounds like a rear main(engine side).

    could be that infamous 20$dollar gasket that you have to pop the eng and the tranny loose to repair. One day if u doit. 4000.00 if the shop does it.
