Dought it.. You should have put in a cooler the first thing...
But hind sight is always 20/20 so..
From what I've heard trannies aren't that expensive in the US..
And they're easy to replace.. So I'd get a new one instead...
Or if you want to, have it rebuilt..

do not, dont, no-way should you rebuild it. unless you like to throw your money away. you can get a cheap low miles used one from greenleaf auto. do a search and you should be able to find the recommended years and what cars to pull them from.

oh i wasnt yelling at you or anything, i just dont want to see him waste his money thats all. a rebuild will cost you about 1200, or you can usually pick up a good used one for about 600.

1200??
That's cheap.. I spent around 3200 bucks on mine..
I upgraded everything and put in 4R70W planetary gears
so that can explain some of the cost...

Just the job was 750+25% VAT..
And I got it that cheap since I came in the tranny
in my hands.. If they were to pull it, it would have cost another
500 bucks.. :D

Nah.. Not so much 'cause it's a foreign car but I had to get all the parts
from the States and shipping all those parts cost A LOT!
And with the 29.5% customs fees and VAT on parts+shipping
it get's expensive..

Then the fact it's an auto tranny narrows down the
places than can service it.. And that makes the price go up..
Auto trannies are rare over here.. Most drive stick..
Eventhough we're changing more and more to auto..

We might gone off topic for a second or two there.. :D

But as I stated in my first post.. I very much dought it
since you've alreday have a leak there's something
very wrong with your seals..

Perhaps if you just get new seals and put in but if the seals are shot
the rest is probably pretty shot too...

I'd say get a new tranny and install a tranny cooler..
You could always put in a cooler first since you have to get
one in the end anyway but if it holds up more than a week
I'd be surprised!

The forward clutch seal rings are leaking. It will only get better with a rebuild. And by rebuild, I mean find someone that takes scrap metal and give it to them. It's 98+ transmission time for you.
