Hey guys, I walk out to my car today and see a puddle of oil. I go and sniff it, and it's gear oil. Look under the car and see that the front of the transmission is soaked in gear oil. I'm assuming front main seal in the trans is done?

Such a headache as I just put in the trans. :rolleyes4

too much

crush washers dont need a ton of force to "crush" them down, if you over torque you can just be creating a problem with the new washer.
