+1 I was thinking the same thing.

That being said it sounds like there might be a gasket failure. Did you torque the bolts down properly? It is easy to over-torque and cause a leak. My advice would be to replace the gasket with a rubber (if possible, versus cork) and determine the torque specs and go from there. Transmission pans and gaskets are usually sensitive to warping if over-torqued and can cause leaks. If you are looking for a "fix it" bottle, ATP-205 does a nice job fixing leaks but honestly I would replace the gasket and check the pan for any warping.

Yep, maybe just a loose screw.

Ya know.

Try ATP 205 re-seal... I have seen many Transmission that leak ATF and 1 bottle of that cured it..
It sounds like a gasket / seal leak...

AT205

You can call Advacne Auto Parts and tell them to type AT205 as the part number as if your were buying and it will pop up what stores in there area have it then you can have it sent to that store... I guess it beats ordering online...

Google the reviews of ATP205 reseal.



Good Luck

Ok I've had a look under the car and as I said it's not leaking from the sump where I did the filter but it looks like it's coming from both sides where the half shafts go into the gearbox could it be seals gone both sides ?
