Most leaks are due to seal failure from high hours and high heat normally found in transmissions.

Tube seals can be replace without much trouble. Housing seals are best done with the transmission removed to prevent the shafts sliding out of place.

Some covers can be fixed in place, it just depends on where the leak is.

If you need more help on this, please post the full machine serial number and the location of the leak.

Also, how much oil are you losing and are you seeing the same amount leak out, or is this an internal leak somewhere?
