I've been in the trans biz for 3 decades.

Since you have all good parts installed correctly on the TV cable, the leak is not there. I suggest you look near by the TV cable

If you tore the rubber sleeve , trans will leak oil. If the plastic on the TV cable is cracked, it will leak

FIFS93TA Also how tight should it be? I can't get a tourque wrench up in there but I can make it close.

How was the cable and sealing sleeve installed?

Did you slide the sleeve (grommet) onto the cable first, then slide that whole assembly into the case? Incorrect method.

Did you install the sealing sleeve (gromet) into the case first , then install the lubricated cable end into the sleeve? Correct method

joshp83 yea u have to unbolt the filller tube so u have to drop the cross member and torque arm
10-07-2012 01:47 PM
FIFS93TA Is it a must? I did the kickdown cable yesterday and it was a really tight squeeze too. How is it in comparison? I'll have to get under it tomorrow and take a look. Thanks so much.

joshp83 to get the dip stick out of a fbody it a tight sqeeze if u plull the trans be best to replace all the seals while you have it out
10-07-2012 12:58 PM
FIFS93TA Will I need to drop the transmission to do this or am I blind and just don't see it from under the car?

SSedan64 When the engine's running the fluid level is about even with the Pan mounting surface. After shut off the TC/TorqueConverter drains back into the pan which raises the fluid level. It can then leak out the front/rear, TV cable, Dipstick, Shift shaft or Speedo seals if they're old/dry/worn.
