    I went to take a road trip to Spokane yesterday in the Mustang when the tranny crapped out going up a hill.
    I get it to a store and check the fluid leval and it took 3 qts to top it off. I didn't see any leaks so I took off again, started going up a 6% grade and it starts pouring smoke out from under the car and some is getting inside.
    Stop and look under and there is a finger sized stream of ATF running out of the cover. I figure I am screwed so I poured another qt in it and get back to a Shell station.
    Spent 3 hrs gettin a trailer located, was told that it would be on the way as soon as he wires in the lights and installs fenders on it. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    I went in the store and bought all the ATF they had, 8qts.
    Topped off the tranny and headed home, it was leaking about 10 drops a minute, not to bad.
    I adedd another pint 50 miles later and it never leaked after that.
    I washed it off today and drove the piss out of it and it still is not leaking. WTF is that all about?
    At first I thought a cooler line had broke as much fluid was pouring out.
    It wasn't foamy and didn't feel too hot either.
    Any ideas on why it was being pumped past the front seal?
