The other night I was looking at some of the pictures of the Buick that I took right after I got it. The odometer read 11152. I went out to the shop to see what it read now… and it read 12152. EXACTLY 1000 miles! How strange? Not bad, 1k miles without any breakdown. It has burned NO measurable amount of oil, which is amazing… however, I think I must have put about 2 gallons (no kidding!) of ATF in the trans. This sucker leaks like a BP oil well! I have to be careful to park it on level ground, or it will leak the entire contents of the transmission out onto the ground. I found this out the hard (or funny?) way. I took it to Spokane one day for lunch at Dicks Hamburgers, an old fashioned 50’s style drive-in burger joint. I parked where I usually do, right up next to the building where the car would sit pointing a bit up-hill. Thinking nothing of it, I ate my food and got in the car to leave. As I backed out I was shocked to see that the Buick had dumped what looked like at LEAST a gallon of ATF onto the ground. There was this MASSIVE oil slick that was running down the hill. A few people who were watching me leave were staring with their jaws open, probably amazed that my car would still move considering the size of the spill I had left. I got the hell out of there before the business owner saw what I did and banned my from coming back! The leak is coming from the “Torque ball” seal, a common place for these old Dynaflow transmissions to leak. I’ve purchased a replacement seal kit and will install it when it arrives.
