Speedometer cable leaking
There is a leak coming from my speedometer cable under my dash. What could be causing it to leak?

If it's from the dash area, it's either the cowl seal or your fresh air intake on the hood, but the fresh air intake usually leaks on the passenger's side. I'd go with cowl seal.

Its still leaking cant figure it out. Started after I installed SYE. I used silicon to try and seal the speedo cable where it connects to T-case and it worked for a week then started to leak again. Any suggestions?

There is no fluid transfer in that cable. What you have is a water leak under your windshield or a rusted windshield frame. Replace the cowl seal and report back.

Leaking what? Gasoline, transmission fluid, engine oil, gear oil, coolant, water?

Since it's from your speedometer cable, you might need to add some of this:

I have the older manual speedometer cable.

You've already received serious answers, multiple times.

There is no "fluid" in the speedometer cable. If there is fluid "leaking" from the cable under the dash, then it has something to do with a water leak from either your cowl seal, your windshield or your fresh air intake.

You were asked what kind of fluid was "leaking", to which you gave no response.

Sorry to be a pr***, but when incomplete information is given, intelligent suggestions made, and logical questions asked without a response, sarcasm is the next logical response.

As the others have said, check the seal at cowl, I would also check the grommet where the cable enters the firewall just left of master cylinder in picture-(slight chance water traveling through (water seeks easiest place in);

GootsYJ1990 07-16-2013 02:48 PM

Sure man. It's not water it's ATF fluid

GootsYJ1990 07-16-2013 02:51 PM

Didn't see the first questions about what was leaking sorry I just saw the the reply about blinker fluid.

The time now is 09:44 AM.
