Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 94 f150xl is leaking auto trans fluid y
does it do that and how can I stop it. I just
replaced my u joint on the driveshaft. But it
seems to be lacking a smooth run and when
I inspected under the truck i be noticed the
trans fluid slowly but not pouring out if the
trany that connect s to the drive shaft. What
I really want to know is. How do I know if the
shaft n tranny are lined up?

They have to be lined up all bolted in place with the yoke into the trany. What you need to do is replace the tail shaft seal that the drive shaft yoke slides into.
