Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Have changed the breather bung and also wrapped ptfe tape round it and why would it suddenly start to leak from there?
yes we did and it is definitely trans fluid. this plastic bung how does it seal itself as last mechanic seemed to think this was the cause?
have put correct oil in and checked level on filler plug yesterday and no oil came out when filler plug off. We put a new three piece clutch set in,have done these before with no problem.But this one is doing my head in and its the other halfs car!
did clutch three days ago and have cleaned area off twice now and also put a small amount of trans oil in since she took it to work today nice and clean and came back covered in oil again for the second time, so your answer no good. Have run it for two days now after cleaning it off and itcomes back covered.
which way do you think the arrow should point towards gearbox or wheel?
okay mike it is not pointing towards front of car at the moment Am going to check this now but am sure there are ridges that that only let you put it in two ways .And you think this could be the problem .
have just been out to car it was pointing towards clutch,okay Mike I will put it back the correct way jack it up on stands and run it in gear to see if it still leaks.And your sure this would cause the problem, how does this affect oil circulating in gearbox?Regards Ron.
okay mike, about to fire it up in gear to see if now okay, I knew someone could help me. I will get back to you a bit later after I have done checks,thanks Mike.
Hi Mike , just took it locally for a road test, and so far so good, have topped it up to its correct level.But will not no for sure until the other half takes it to work and back tomorrow, as on a short run it never showed up last time.Anyway thanks for your help.Regards Ron.
