    Oh yes, Section G is on my reading list.

    That shaft does sound like a good candidate for the leak. I'm guessing it's part 103581, which is of course out of stock at store.DeLorean.com . ...

    I was thinking the dye test for after it's all back together again, just to make sure we actually fixed it.

    Just to be absolutely clear: I am only slipping when I'm low on fluid. I wind up not checking it for too long, it slips a little (or doesn't move or moves too slowly on it's own when putting it in...

    I probably have done some damage to the clutches, since the trans has slipped on me due to the incessant leaking. I do immediately put fluid in when that happens, but by then it's been running low...
