I have a Borg Warner DG-250 Automatic Transmission with a leak issue. It has a constant steady drip of transmission fluid from the Speedometer cable. The outer cable housing is cracked about 6" from the transmission and it drips very steadily there, this is a serious drip, not an ocassional drip. Before I replace the speedometer cable, is this normal, or is there something more sinister lurking in the transmission? Also is there a seal or something I will need in addition to the cable to prevent this? Any advice is appreciated.
The transmission seems to operate fine (at least at low speeds and reverse) as long as the fluid is topped off. As I have a brake issue I'm waiting for parts on I haven't hit 3rd yet.
