2017 6.7 trans leak

I have 2017 6.7 bought in August has had a little trans leak ever since it had around 5,000 miles in October.
The leak seamed to be getting worse with 18,000 miles.
So back to the dealership.
Schedule a appointment for them to fix the leak.
They say it is the trans pump seal / torque converter seal.
They have had the truck for 8 weekdays and a weekend still not done.
What would be a reasonable amount of time to replace these seals?
Not to happy😬

If there just doing the torque converter seal it's a full days work on one of these trucks. If they found a leak from the converter itself good luck getting one. I believe as of 5/7 my parts guy told me only one dealer in the U.S. had available converters.

Yes if you are doing it in your back yard for the first time, that would be accurate.
One person can accomplish a lot in one day, if they want to.

Without torquing any bolts and experience working on this particular engine and trans combo I could see someone getting it done in your time frame. It takes a good hour to mount trans to engine stand and use proper lifting equipment for torque converter removal and installation.

It may be a issue with getting parts. Have you had a conversation with the dealer? Have they told you the reason for the delay.? It should take a couple days to remove and rebuild and install transmission. Maybe they found more wrong when they dropped the box.
You need to talk to the dealer.

Thanks for the replies.
I have been on them.
They took the truck on Monday morning got a loaner car.
They didn’t start working on it till this week.
Just got a text all back together test running checking repair.
So if the repair is good it was 10 weekdays and a weekend.
From what I know a seal was the only part replaced.
Way to long just hope it is fixed.
Just really bad planning by the dealer.

Glad you are back on the road. I would imagine they dont want to keep your truck any longer than they have to. They dont make any money on a repair that isn't finished

I agree they don’t money until the repair is done.
But I also think if your to take someone truck from them to make a repair you have the manpower and basic parts to fix it.
I worked maintenance for 40 years in management and with my hands.
You do the work with planning and parts there seemed to be none of this on this job.
Now part 2
Picked up truck on Friday afternoon all seemed well they said they were going to change the filter they didn’t.
I told them I had to have the truck this Saturday.
The dealer had the truck two weeks for a two to four day job at the most.
I had to leave early Saturday 4am morning about 120 miles each way and being gone all day.
I wasn’t towing anything either.
Well about 50 miles into the trip the trans temp hits 200 degrees thinking it would start to drop it just keeps climbing.
So needless to say I had to stop three times to get to my destination hitting temps up to 235degrees on trans temperature.
I also had to limp it home the same way at the end of day.
So back to dealer on Monday now I’m really pissed.
What makes me mad about this was them taking 2 weeks to make a two to four day repair this would of been caught last week prior to when I really needed my truck.

Trans fluid is full on dip stick.

Wow this sucks man. No way should temps get that high not towing. You know that you don't have to take the truck to the place where you purchased the truck. You probably do now but I would find another dealer for any future service.

235 F when towing wouldn't bother me too much. But 235 F when not towing? Something is really wrong.

I don’t believe my trans temp ever went above 200 degrees prior to them working on the trans leak.
