front main trans seal leak?

well i found a clean title 95 h23a1 on craigslist for 1000 just needs a new tranny, ecu, i guess the guy claims the teeth on a camber sensor is dirty so has abs light on, and has a front main trans seal leak?

if i got a new transmission there wouldnt be a leak anymore would there?
correct me if i'm mistaken please.

all feedback is appreciated

Re: front main trans seal leak?

Well let's discuss this not from a mechanical or technical standpoint, but from a common sense standpoint.

A transmission seal went bad. If you replaced the transmission, would it still be leaking?

Well duh. The old transmission would still be leaking, since you didn't replace the seal on it. The new transmission, provided it's input shaft seal is intact, would not.

However, you meant it in a more generalized "whole car" kinda way, meaning "would the car still be leaking?" In which case the answer is no, provided the new transmission isn't leaking.

However, if it is not the transmission that is leaking, but in fact the rear main seal on the crankshaft that is leaking, a new transmission would not help.


Long story short...you don't need a new transmission to fix a seal leak. Just seperate the trans from the block and replace the seal. Do the rear main while you are at it and chances are if its leaking MTF or motor oil has prolly gotten onto the clutch disc and pressure plate surfaces, and you'll need a new clutch too.


as for the abs, if the speed sensor gears are dirty, clean them or replace it. That shouldn't warrant a new ECU, which a factory ECU costs about $750.00 depending on your emission standards.
