    Default Hey GM techs

    My wife tells me that she smells tranny fluid on our 03 2500HD, Duramax Allison. I smell it also. Look for leaks, none. Was not quite ready for a trans service but I changed the fluid anyway. Smell went away for a few days then returned. I have an appointment to drop it off but wanted to hear some input. Thanks

    the frt pump bolts seals are prone to leak on those trans, there for awhile i was pulling out allisons left and right replacing pump bolt seals.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Also check the power steering lines. At that age, it would probably be time for hoses to start leaking. PS fluid is very similar to trans fluid - smell the same, and would be ahead of the exhaust where it would burn and make the smell worse.

    Seems there might have been a small leak at the oilfilter I saw. Changed it and the smell went away. I did notice however there was some sweat from a power steering hose that I will keep an eye on and replace. Thanks guys. Cale

    That's what I figured.

    Ya better keep going. At that age, I would start collecting parts. Serp belt, water pump, stationary idler pulleys and the tensioner. All of this would need to be freshened at you age. I did all of that to my '98 at 7 years old/75,000. Better to spend a little now - than thousands later when one or all of that goes half-way between Havasu and the tow truck has to come out.

    When the water pump is off/empty, it is a great time to go through the radiator and put all new rubber hoses. Beats blowing a head gasket.

    Just my $.02
