Help, it leaks all over!!!

I was going thru my 89 560SL, it was time to get to the ATF, well took the pan off, easy, got Dextron II ATF as in the car manual instructions. easy job. Now the transmition leak all over the place, it even seems to be leaking from the front seal, took the pan out again check tha gasket, everithing look fine pot it back again, at first does not seem to leak but after a while it start, is there any posibility the front seal went bad on me? on a side note, the grid on the converter housing is broken look like it hit something, the converter has some marks on it, is it just a coincidence?

Just a guess, but did you make sure that you screwed it on in opposite order? (far left, close right, left side middle, right side middle) to enusre a tight fit?
There was a post the last few days about using a type of sealant to seal the gasket.

The torque converter on my 1981 300TDT has the grill broken, and marks on the unit inside. I would not worry about this. It appears that someone, while attempting to drain the torque converter, broke them with a screwdriver or bar and used the same instrument to manually pry/spin the t.q. to a place that they could see the drain plug.

Sorry, I cannot help on the leak question, but here is the 'sealant' thread:
Changed tranny filter, now pan won't seal!

'81 300TD Wagon 168K "Tank"
'83 240D 216K 4spd manual "Da Bear" (aka best car ever)
