Gearbox oil leak ?

Post by BlueRubber » Fri Jun 05, 2020 1:55 pm

My auto gearbox seems to have a very slow leak and needs topping up every 5,000 miles ish.

But I cannot find where it's coming from, I know a little oil would have leaked when I topped up the oil around the gearbox dip stick, but I don't think that is the main source.

Have checked the pipes going into the radiator and they are both clean at the radiator end.

Photo #4 coolant pipe? looks like the seal on the end of the pipe might be leaking.
I'd try spraying it down with brake cleaner and rags to clean the area, see if it shows after a while.
