Post Turbo 350

My tranny was already rebuilt once. But now its leaking fluid from the driveshaft weephole why is that. I have plenty of grease inside.
Please help does it have anytihng to do with the clicking noise my tranny makes when its warmed up. It also does it when the car is is not moving is that possible?

where do you mean by the drive shaft weep hole. where is the noise coming from on your trans front or back. if it is from the front it could be your torque converter or your trans pump. when you installed the torque converter did you turn and shove the torque in all the way? the torque converter has 2 notches cut in it , for the trans pump. if you didn't shove it in all the way, the converter can put pressure on the pump and destroy it. this probable your noise! to find out if it is your problem , unbolt your torque converter and see if you can turn it . if not ( the pump may all ready be damaged ) remove trans and check notches on the pump by removing the converter and looking into the front of the trans where the converter was , you should see 2 notches oppitsite of each other. make sure there are good and square to each other, by putting in the torque in wrong you usally destroy the pump . to fix this replace trans pump.

Thank you very much for you reply. The leak is from the rear where the drive shaft goes into the tranny the middle of the yoke has a weep hole where fluid is leaking out of the tranny into the driveshaft and out the hole. what does this mean. I will check the torque converter is it a hard job?

When the torque converter is installed correctly you shouldn't be able to slide your hand between the converter and front pump housing.

The hole is there to let air out but this type of yolk is supposed to have a sleeve with an o ring pressed onto the output shaft, the end of the yolk (inside the tailhousing) fits into this sleeve to seal it.
Sounds like you have no sleeve so you need a yolk with no hole in it, just plug the hole as described above.
