Hello. Thanks for writing in about your Chrysler 300M. Simply put, a broken seal won't last at all since it's already broken. When it's broken it cannot handle the pressures of the transmission pump. If you'd like assistance with this, consider YourMechanic, as one of our qualified technicians can come to your home or office to service your vehicle.
