oil leaks


does the 2ltr gtv have a gearbox oil dipstick, if so where abouts?

i've got oil sweating from both ends of the gearbox, from the small end section cover (looks like it might be coming from a seal) and from the large section that's attached to the engine (hard to tell where this is coming from).

the sump plugs leaking too, does the gtv have a plug gasket?

Re: oil leaks

My TS doesn't have a dipstick though I think some models do. You measure from the plug on the front of the box. Take a peak at the How To section in the Alfa Workshop website under "How to Remedy a non selecting 4th gear". Some nice pictures of the little end showing how to remove and replace. Worth replacing that gasket as its fairly easy and a new sealing washer in the drain plug. Not sure about the bell housing end as it could be coming from various places and some minor weeping is quite normal so I'd pressure wash it all and then keep an eye on it.
