91 Limited purging transfluid

My 91 limited doesn't normally leak any fluids.  When i drive from Springdale to Jacksonville, however, the trans purges fluid out of the vents. I know for sure its coming from the vent that is zip-tied to the filler tube but there appears to be another on at the top of the bell housing that seems to be leaking as well.  The whole top side of the trans is soaked.  I have another 250 miles ahead of me to get back home with me two rear old. is this somethin i can fix in a few hours or flat backin, or am i lookin at a new tranny.

That happens when the transmission gets too hot. I would make sure you have a couple quarts on hand and watch the levels often. You should be fine to keep driving but be aware when going up hills you are working the transmission harder than normal. Also you will want to stop every so often to let it cool down. The fix for this is to add a transmission cooler.

Also you can tell when the fluid is purging when you look behind you and there is a trail of smoke. That is when you need to stop and wait for it to cool and check levels

Re: 91 Limited purging transfluid

Ok that's what I've been doing, to keep it on the road. I haven't seen one on it so I'm guessing it's without one. Also it clunks when I put it in Rand in D, and when I try to get up on a curb it sounds like the TC chain is slipping. I'm thinking strongly on getting a new one.
