New way for V8 to smoke
Many thanks to those who responded with my plea for a good shop to
work on my V8 transmission. The lucky winner (for them and me) was
the Benz Den in Belmont (closest to home and work) who determined that
I had a transmission fluid leak from the cooler line connection (what
the heck is that?) and repaired it for a mere (compared to my
worst-case fears) $300. That's all labor + a 60 cent part.
It amazes me that of all the reports I've seen of what was dripping
onto the exhaust system causing a V8 to smoke, not one has been the
same. Previous reports were coolant, main engine bearing seal,
steering rack, and another I've forgotten (differential seal?).
