pool of trans fluid on the floor.

Recommended Posts

Got the Riviera out of winter hibernation yesterday. Attached is a picture of the fluid that burped out of my transmission. Of the 4 winters I have had my car stored for an extended period without starting This has happened twice. The 2 winters previous to this it did not burp out any fluid. As several people have stated a drip pan makes this a quick clean up and a very minor annoyance. After a drive to get everything good and hot it took only 10-11 ounces to top it off and we were good to go.

I agree with all on here about the "drainback" issue, driving should keep it in check. Where you have to worry is if it keeps leaking when you are able to drive it regularly. When I had my 63 I drove it every week and only had a few drips of fluid but all of a sudden it started leaking heavily and leaving a trail - that's when I had to have it rebuilt.
