520H Transmission Leaking Oil??

Recommended Posts

Haven't used it in a couple weeks and noticed wet spot on driveway underneath it. Thought fuel line but feels like oil. What would cause this and what should i do to fix it?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Did you recently change the oil or add to it...?  it will burp some out while sitting until it gets all the air out...

did you hand push it any, I've had some off mine do that from time to time never quite sure why, expansion and contraction from heating and cooling ???. check fluid level and move on and see if it does it again

One time mine burped like that, but not quite that much.  I suspect that the oil drains down from the filter or hydro and in effect overfills the case.

The transmission oil fill (dipstick) tube is loose, it is threaded into case.

Remove rear fender pan and put thread tape on oil fill tube.

Weird but i think the fluid drain back / burping may have been it. Driveway is at a slant and rear was lower.. I lifted seat to pull dipstick only to see fluid near top so It seems like it was spilling out from there. I started it, raised deck, drove it over to other driveway, parked sidways and re-checked dipstick.. Now the oil is not visible inside the tube.

Thanks a lot brothers!
