700r4 governer fluid loss

Post by BOOT » Wed Aug 26, 2015 1:11 am

Ok stupid question time. Playing with the gov on this car and the 1st time I lost 1.5+ qrt of fluid, had a nice steady stream. So I put in 1.2 qrt and was gonna check it hot, since I know the car was full hot before. After a warm up and drive the 2nd time I get just just a few drops from the cover and a light short drizzle pulling the gov. I jacked up the car the exact same way and in the same spot. Well the front was up for a week before the 1st time, could that be the reason I got so much vs so little?

Same thing happen to me, car had been sitting for 4 days an figured I'd mess with the weights before driving it. Thinking nothing would drain out or maybe a little bit I pulled off the cover an instantly had about a qt. on the floor. Had to slide my fat ass out from under the car an find something to catch the fluid,well it was to late by then. I had pulled it off before when it was warm an hardly anything came out.
