i remember someone saying that on supras, its common for one of the transmition seals or gaskets to go bad, thus causing a little trans fluid to leak. well i noticed a couple days ago after the car is sitting for a few hours, a a few small drops of trans fluid drip onto the ground. i got under the car and it looks like it is coming from where two parts of the tranny connect, like right above where the downpipe starts to bent coming form the engine bay i think. its a round or oval part of the transmition. is this a common problem, that can be fixed as easy as just replacing the seal? i havent noticed any other sorta problems related, it still shifts fine and feels like normal. any help or suggestions would be appreciated. thanx

From what I've read, the common leaks are from the rear tranny seal or seal around the shifter. I also heard that it's a PITA! :(

My tranny is also leaking. I think it's the rear seal, but don't know for sure. I'm going to take it in to get it check out.

Tranny leak sux!!!

Estimated cost on fixing that leak is $300.00 because you would have to pull of the tranny to get to it... You might as well put in a new clutch while your at it.
