Transmission fluid at shifter

Recommended Posts

Is it normal to have oil at the shifter assembly? I think this is what has been causing my leak. I changed the rear output seal and nothing changed, so this mus be it. Is there any other reason why the oil got here other than an overfilled transmission?

This is a 5 speed in a 77 280z btw

Thanks!

There's a seal on the striker rod that dries up or wears, apparently.  Very difficult to get to.  If you overfill you probably get more seepage there.  Not a huge deal except for the annoyance.

 

Part #22.  You'd have to tear the transmission down to fix it.

I've had that same leak and I temporarily stopped the leak by wrapping the joint where it's leaking from with thick cotton kitchen cord.  8-10 wraps as tight as the cord will let you without breaking, it wicks up some oil and stops the rest. It worked for over 4 yrs before I sold it and is probably still holding.
