Post Transmission Leak ...

I did an oil change on my 09 last week to get it ready to come out of storage and I found a puddle of trans fluid under it . I can see it leaked from the rear of the pan . I don't remember seeing that when I parked it ... Anyway I need to get it fixed . What do you guys think ... Dealer repair or transmission shop ? The truck is out in Belleville and I'll have to find a shop out there to service it .

Yah, that's a pretty subjective call only you can make Larry.

For what it's worth, I don't have a whole lot of confidence in the chain specialty shops, whether its transmissions or exhaust or whatever.

But, I'm biased toward the dealership I go to, just because I've been getting all my vehicles serviced there for the last 10 years or so.

I've got a pretty good working relationship with them, and never had any issues with the work that was done, so I'd be inclined to stick with what I know.

I can see the advantages of going to the chain specialty store, all they do is transmissions, but for a simple fluid and gasket, I'd still go dealer.

I was thinking the same thing . I'm hoping to get some feed back on one of the dealer ships in the Kingston / Belleville area .

I'm not sure what the problem is here … If the leak was there when I parked the truck in Oct or If something happen over the winter to cause the leak .

So I'm going to hazzard a quess and say that a replacement transmission is not cheap so better to aire on the side of caution and have someone who knows what to look for service it . So self service is not an option in my mind …

Tighten the pan bolts and top it up. Or if your feeling adventurous, R/R the pan gasket and filter and put some fresh fluid in. Your transmission will love you for it.

Is it a 6R80? There is a connector to the valve body that the oring goes and have to replace the whole connector 6L2Z-7G276-AA, as well as just the pan gasket itself BL3Z-7A191-C, both very common. Just like the Power Steering Pressure Line.
