im about to have a heart attack

so i crawled under my jeep a few minutes ago to attempt to adjust the ebrake since its not holding like it should. i noticed oil covering my tcase skid plate. i got to looking at it and saw a hole where my tranny and tcase connect. almost like they are not lined up correctly.



i know its kinda difficult to see. if anyone has any idea what is going on here please help me out.

couldnt get a better pic but i did find this.

this is the very front of the transmission. seems like there should be some type of gasket keeping fluid in, not a big gap.

i also saw this and had no clue what it is.

seems like it should be connected to something

1st pic looks like the dust cover for the fly wheel..no gasket needed 2nd pick looks like the clutch slave cylinder with the safety switch unconnected...will the jeep start with out the clutch pedal depressed? Now that I look closer it looks like a bleeder?

yes it will start without the clutch pressed. and yeah it does look like a hydraulic bleeder after someone says something. makes sense about the slave cylinder too. my main concern is the tranny/tcase not lining up. with the skid plate on its really difficult to get a picture but from what it looks like the bolts that hold them together have either broken or fallen out so that they are not connected. does this sound feasible?

Your jeep is marking its territory.

for me to get a better pic i gotta pull off the skid plate which i dont really have time to do right now. as far as it marking its territory that would be fine but not with ALL the tranny fluid.

I can't really tell what the first picture is, its a bad picture but looks like a chunk of the case housing is missing. What kind of fluid is on the skid plate. Consistancy, color, and smell.

The second 2 pictures is just the flywheel cover and the Internal Slave Cylinder bleed valve. If you look at your calipars for your breaks you will see the same kind of bleed valve.

if the second pic is where your trans and bellhousing join, there is no gasket there.its probably your input shaft seal.

Looks like you got some wrenching to do anyways, if all your trans fluid is pouring out your dust cover, you need to pull the transmission and replace the input seal and maybe the bearing....

The second 2 pics are normal/no big worry. That 1st one though... It looks like something is broken. There appears to be chunks of aluminum missing, either from your trans or t-case. You're Gunna have to drop the skid plate (make sure to support the trans on a jack or something) and get a good look (and pic). Any unusual noises? Crunching, clunking, grinding etc?

Yeah that definately looks like a chunk of housing missing. As for the fluid, manual transmission and t-case take Automatic transmission fluid. I was sure that the manuals where sealed, not sure about the T-case on the transmission side.
Get on some level ground and see if the Tcase has any fluid in it. Just pop off the fill port and put your finger inside. You should beable to tough fluid.

outside of the clutch pressure issue ive been having (which is addressed in a different thread) the truck has driven just fine. occassional issue with getting into first but no noises at all.
and it hasnt even been over more than a speed bump.

I may be wrong, but to me it looks like you have a rear main seal leak in the second pic, and the clutch bleeder has already been mentioned. The first pic I can't tell, but the fluid in the pic looks like oil not tranny fluid. Tranny fluid should be red.
Now another thing to look into (and this is common, I just re-built one for my mothers jeep) your drive chain in the transfer case may be worn and has rubbed a hole in the aluminum casing. It isn't that bad to do if you have the tools, but it is easy to make a mistake that will cost you more money.
I fixed hers with JB Weld, removed shavings, installed new chain and output seal, and she is on the road again. It took about 4 hrs. and parts were about $130.00

Best of luck to ya

If it is not missing a chunk between the tranny and transfer case try this. I was switching out my rear driveshaft once and when I was pushing up to tighten bolts I thought something isn't right. As I pushed up I noticed a gap opening between my tranny and transfer case. I went to my mechanic with this one. Claimed he hadn't seen it happen before but I was missing a few bolts that held these together.

crafty thats what it seems like to me due to the fact that none of the metal looks beat up ive never heard any noises or hit anything or wheeled or any of that stuff since ive had it. i mean ive only even put it in 4x4 just to make sure it worked. i do know that i have valve cover gasket leak and its been there since before i got it. is there a chance that what im seeing is run down from the valve cover? seems to be a lot of it for run down especially since i havent driven it very much and the oil level isnt dropping that much.

Mine did this after I owned it for years. If that might be it drop the skid or get it checked out before it gets worse and comes completely apart. A leaking valve cover plus a leaking rear main seal can lead to a soaked mess under your rig also.

If you can degrease everything really good there is a trick you can try. Hit a patch of mud and let it dry then take it for a drive and see what gets wet again. You can also try flour or powder but it doesn't work as good and not as much fun ;-)
