I had mine rebuilt at 198000. It was real noisey in reverse and slipped when it was cold. Figured it was time. Had it rebuilt by a local mechinic whom I trusted.
After rebuild trans is great mechanically, but leaks like a sieve. I have had it back to his shop 4 times and need to bring it back again next week. He says it is leaking from around a bolt. One of the bolts that hold the 2 halves together. So far he has just put teflon on the bolt and then 2 rounds of gooping silicone into the bolt hole. The last time I told him I thought that was ridiculous. I have never had a 32RH apart myself personally but I have to believe there is a gasket in between the 2 halves. If so, I would think the only way fluid could leak out around a bolt is if the gasket is compromised. Does anyone who has had one apart have any ideas. Could the casting the bolt tightens into be cracked someway? I am bringing it back next week and am going to insist he pull it out and break it apart. BTW, I am not talking about drips either, I am talking about puddles. It is a bad leak.
