Hyster S60XM:
TRANNY FILTER DEVELOPS LEAK

I HAVE A CUSTOMER WITH A HYSTER S60XM D187# THAT KEEPS CHANGING TRANSMISSION OIL FILTERS EVERY 45 DAYS DUE TO A HOLE DEVELOPING IN THE FILTER ITSELF. AS FAR AS I KNOW THIS TRANNY DOES NOT HAVE A BREATHER SO WHERE ELSE SHOULD I LOOK?

If you use a OEM filter it will not leak. I'm a service manager at a hyster dealership. I see this all the time. If you put on a OEM you will not have the problem.

sounds like just the opposite of how we used to keep track of oil changes for old Detroit diesel 3 cylinders. when it STOPPED leaking, it was time to add/change oil.

LOL, the leaking engine filter is how I keep track of pm's.

If it leaks, it's time to drop the oil :-)

Ive got the same thing.Use Wix filters they last longer.Engine will do the same leak at 30 to 45 days on a aftermarket filter.

just had a thought. check that the engine is not overspeeding/overevving. that can cause too high a pressure in the transmission. easy first check

pressures too high. remove the control block and make sure all the springs and spools are ok. must be something sticking
. can,t quite remember but i think the filter is in the lubrication circuit. i,ll look it up if you need

hello Mike, yes it's just a pinhole at the seems that develops. my customer also states that when he installs a new filter it usually starts to leak from the bottom like when it's the gasket or not tighten enough. he then gives it a few turn to tighten and that stops that leak. then 30 - 45 days later the pinhole develops at the seems. what do you think?

What kind of a hole?
Is the filter popping/splitting open?

Just a pinhole?

I've had tons of these filters leak at the seam, over the years...

Fact of the week

The earliest known production of steel is seen in pieces of ironware excavated from an archaeological site in Anatolia and are nearly 4,000 years old, dating from 1800 BC. The main reasons for the popularity of steel are the relatively low cost of making, forming, and processing it, the abundance of its two raw materials (iron ore and scrap), and its unparalleled range of mechanical properties.
