Question About Transmission Dipstick Tubes
I have a 94 Mark 8, the previous owner told me the trans was rebuilt what I didnt know was the guy who did it was a moron! It died in less than 5k miles. I now had someone competent build me a whole new trans from a new core because the old one wasn't even a good core. Only Problem is the previous guy beat the hell out of the dip stick tube for the transmission. The good guy who rebuilt the new transmission for me said the tube was bent and had a couple cracks in it, so he straigtened and welded it up and then replaced the O ring and siliconed the outside to keep it from leaking. But the leak is slowly coming back. The smell of trans fluid dripping on my catalytic converter is making me sick . So I'm trying to find a good new or used dipstick tube. I found a part number on another site F3LY-7A228-A but unfortunately its discontinued. Is there any other car that uses the same tube? Maybe the 03 Mustang SVT Cobra? Its a 4r70w and a DOHC 4.6?
