    Since my Jimmy is D.O.D., it has formed a wet spot about a foot in diameter underneath the transmission. It is in the area of the torque converter. I can't tell where it is coming from. Any idea what could be leaking so I know what else I need to fix when I finally get the money to get it running again?

    could be front seal dipstick o ring front of the pan it could be any of those all are easy to fix exept the front seal that one you would need to pull the tranny to fix[​IMG] check the bolts on the pan and make sure they are tight but dont over tighten them

    Yep front seal would be a hassle... Dipstick tube seal would be ideal, since it's cake to replce. Here's what mine looked like when it couldn't take anymore: k5.8m.com

    My Blazer has been sitting for a few months (blown tranny) and I have a oil spot about 4 feet in diameter! But, its not my tranny its my transfer case (NP203).

    But, I was aware of the leak before hand.
