    I have a 99 Nissan Frontier with 6.5 Meyers, plowed the other day for a couple of hours, no problems, today I come back from the store and notice some red stuff in the snow, not where it was parked since the other day, just where I moved it, anyway my first thougth is Hydraulic fluid, no leaks, then I notice the drip from under the truck !

    The truck drives perfect, transmission is not rough at all and I am pretty gentle with it plowing.. Is my Transmission toast ?? Leak is pretty bad..

    help...

    Depends how u look at it.

    An over heater burnt up transmission usually wont leak. Make sure its not something simple like the pan gasket or the cooler lines. If it shift fine theres probably no major damage. But is leaking out the front pump or something the cost to get it fixed might no be that far form a full overhaul.

    locate the source of the leak. Both the tranny and the transfer case take red tranny oil. I have used transmission Stop-leak sold at Advance, or any auto-part depot. The stop leak is red/pink and clear. It will not plug the leak, instead it replenishes the seals.
