    The big round plug at the rear of the trans, on top of the pan.. normal for it to have fluid coming out, inside the plugs? I originally thought it was water from pressure washing the motor/trans, put a rag in to pick up the water and it was red trans fluid in the plug housing..

    No, that is the electronics connector, there is a cork gasket that goes there like on the distributor.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it does have to come down.

    You will probably have to get it from a transmission place specifically ...

    Thanks. From what i have found it's held in by clips. You push it up from the bottom till they all catch on top. Has an o-ring in the center, kinda like the piece that the speedo cable screws onto on a th350. But i can't see the o-ring causing fluid in the connector. Have a feeling i might be changing that whole connector& harness bc i cant find them separately unless i can find one in the junkyard.

    Yeah it's held in by clips, maybe there is a crack in there somewhere and the fluid is seeping up thru ...

    That's what I figure. No big deal. Just another thing to add to the list. Lol
