February 1, 2011this weekend I was replacing the ball joints on the front end. when I was done with that and backed out I saw a small, not even a puddle, just a damp spot. after cleaning the tranny off and letting it sit for a while, it looks like it is slowly seeping out of the gasket on the front. I was mostly wondering if anyone has used tranny stop leak, and if it is any good, or if it just gums things up and makes the situation worse. or if there is a better brand. thanks for your help.

February 4, 2011Don`t ever ever ever dump any kind of stop leak crap into any part of your truck. Ever. Like NPR says, go through the procedure of draining your ATF, clean the pan out good including the mating surface and replace the transmission filter(s) while you`re at it. Do it right and you won`t have to screw with it for another 30,000 miles.
February 4, 2011I second that. Cheap fixes, but they never really work as they claim. Do it right the first time. Good luck.
I have a Big Bumper and I`m not afraid to use it!
