hi
i have a 96 ford taurus. the transmission is leaking, its a slow leak it drips and i have noticed a small thin crack in the case a few inches long. i already put JB WELD on it but it cracked throught the JB WELD. i was wondering if anyone had this problem before or if anyone has any ideas on a easy fix. thanks

It depends where the crack is.
Can you show us?

Buy a ford reman trans, once the case cracks it is all over.  With the amount of stress put on the case you need to replace the transmission to properly fix it

the crack is on the back end of the transmission above the pan in between the exhaust. what if i took the transmission out and welded it with aluminum weld.

I BOUGHT A TURBO 350 TRANNY WITH A CRACK ON THE CASE WOULD IT BE ALRIGHT TO INSTALL THIS TRANNY IN MY CAR, THE CRACK IS NEAR THE BELLHOUSING.

Sean, have you had the pan off lately? A crack in that area is likely to be caused by the final drive ring gear trying to expand because something is caught in the teeth. That something is little pieces of broken final drive planet gear teeth. I would not suggest welding it, get another trans.

68 camaro guy, you may be able to save that case if you get it welded.
