Leaking Transmission Electrical Connectors

Postby hometheaterman » Tue May 09, 2017 9:49 pm

As I continue to try to track down leaks on my transmission in my 96 Trooper, I'm thinking maybe the electrical connectors are leaking as I see old fluid around them. I know Jerry told me in the last that the o rings sometimes fail allowing these connectors to leak. Has anyone experienced this? Do you know what size o rings I need? Also, how do you remove the connectors to change these o rings?

The O ring is part of the connector

To replace the O ring or the connector you have to remove the ATF pans and disconnect the internal connector. The external connector is a twist to lock in the case configuration. The probability you can remove a 21 year old connector from the case without breaking it is 50/50.

Thank you for the advice. It sounds like replacing the connectors is the way to go. Unfortunately it may have to wait a little while. I was hoping I'd be able to do it without dropping the pan, but that's not the case.
