Leaking Tranny

2001 F350 4x4 7.3 130k. When I am in warm weather above 80* my trans. leaks fluid out the dust cover when I go to park the truck. It will stream out and have a small puddle. This only happens when it's hot outside and doing let's say 5mph or slower. The truck is clean underneith so it doesn't leak at high speeds. Normal conditions under 80* I will get one small drip in the driveway. I imagine its a seal. The truck shifts smooth, no chattering, or sounds. It's happend twice. Your thoughts?

e4OD has been known to piss out of the front pump/convertor seal. most of the time it is during or after towing heavy or when hot.

I have had the same issue. I swaped the 7.3 trans cooler for a 6.0 trans cooler and most of the issue has gone away. The only time it pukes know is if I am pulling a heavy load really slow. Some day I am going to get the seal fixed (Or just get a BTS and not worry about it anymore)
