I have a really leaky transmission. I do not run Spec E30 but run GTS 1 and literally have to fill my tranny after every session. Anybody have any remedies besides replacing seals.

well it depends where the leak is......make sure the vent on the top is clear so there is not too much pressure inside forcing oil past the seal....but they all leak eventually.

I have heard running a tube from the vent pipe to a drip can can help relieve the pressure as well.

Also what fluid should I be using to help this? I ran Red Line last year and was wondering if I should use a thicker fluid or not?
