I recently fixed an engine oil leak that made a mess all around the underside of my 77 280z. After a few months of the leak stopping I noticed that my transmission is also leaking at the rear where it meets the the driveshaft. I also noticed it only leaks when I drive it. Is this because the transmission might be overfilled? Or could it be a bad seal? If I have to remove the driveshaft, what's the best way to do it? I'll add some pics, you can see the oil drip and splatter all over the car. Thanks!
How's it going, I picked up a '71 240z the other day. When I got back to town I stopped by the local gas station and began fueling up, right when I topped her off fuel flushed out from what looked to be under the tank. Talk about nerve racking! It was a nice puddle, and then leaked steadily for around 10 minutes or so, and eventually stopped. For the next couple days I drove around and every time I stopped (be it at a light or parking lot) there would be a tiny amount of fuel dripping from again - what appears to be the bottom of the tank - then it would stop within a couple minutes. Now that my fuel is lower, she doesn't leak. Also my gauge isn't working so I can't tell you roughly how full it is. Whenever I put the smallest amount of fuel in her, I smell fuel from inside the car! I ordered all new vent hoses, I was going to drop the tank when they come in and see if I can identify the problem. I'm HOPING it's not the tank. I haven't ordered a new fuel filler hose, they're pretty expensive. I know there's a million posts out there on this, I've been searching. but since every case is slightly different, hopefully this will be helpful to someone with the same issue in the future! If you'd like to chime in and offer some much needed advise, I'd be thankful. -C
Hey all, New member, but I've been lurking while looking to buy. I've found a great 260z to potentially buy, but it's got some oddities to it and some issues. Gallery: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B0dMD16jjK-rdUpKOTdESlJuUUU&usp=drive_web First, It's body/frame/exterior is in really solid shape. Repaint in non-original blue/gray is good, originally orange. Second, Interior is great. Now the oddity: Dogleg 5 speed transmission from ??? vehicle... And the negatives: Slow leaks at the rear diff and somewhere around the engine/transmission. I really could use some feedback about: value, costs of leak repairs, how good/bad the dogleg is (fit, original install, longterm use), and general opinions. Really appreciate all feedback! Jeremy
