Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

Transmission oil leak

The transmission is leaking. it leaks more as the unit heats up ie. long drive.
Have had to chrysler dealer but they were unable to locate leak.
are there seals or gaskets that are prone to failure? Looking at the tranny the oil could be leaking from a small area and spreading all over the lower part of the unit.......any idea's or questions?

Automatic transmission not working at all


Check the oil level in the transmission to check for oil leaks . Run fault codes and look for a fault in the TCM unit or wires not connected properly. Have a pressure test done to check for internal problems.

Hi Peter, the transmission runs fine as long as it has fluid but leaks out from the bottom not sure if it is the pan. I saw two holes possible in the pan. 2003 Chrysler Voyager. Is there a pump in the...


The pump is inside

Sounds like you need to get a used transmission
pan for the bottom if it is dented,leaks etc

If your loosing fluid & drive it you will ruin it in
a very few miles when it leaks out

The gaskets are on the botton oil pan,the side drive axle
seals on the case & the front pump seal you can'r see,for
that the transaxle has to come out

Hi I just purchase a 2001 Chrysler minivan The car turns on but wont drive and is leaking oil transmission Help me wats the problem?


Without transmission fluid the car wont move, it mostly leaks at pan gasket,the transmission cooler line or front transmission seal. I have to say you may be safe to add 1 quart ATF 4 transmission fluid, being in front of the vehicle looking in the engine the dipstck is where you add transmission fluid it on the right hand side yellow handle. pull the dipstick out get a funnel that can help you add transmission fluid if the leak is not that bad this can help you get to shop that can fix the leak and put you on the road

Severe oil leak happen while driving. Engine still runs but can't locate where leak is coming from. Any Ideas or solutions beside paying 100s of dollars.


Common area for oil leaks would be from the oil filter, oil line to the cooler attached to the radiator and the other place that is most common would be a faulty oil pressure sending unit.
When the oil pressure sending unit goes bad, oil will leak from the unit. It's made of a metal fitting and plastic top and the plastic will tend to crack after a few long years from the heat making them brittle.
Inspect your oil pressure sending unit and replace if any sign of oil, You can pick up the unit at Auto Zone and can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools. They would also be glad to help you find where the leak is coming from free of charge.
Thank you for using fixya and if it's your transmission that is leaking, don't drive it if the level is low and take note transmission fluid is flammable and will catch fire from the heat of the exhaust.

My 2003 chrysler concorde is leaking transmission fluid. what is causing that?


All depends on where it's leaking from. If it's leaking from the transmission pan, then it's going to be a bad transmission pan gasket. If it's leaking from the transmission cooler line or connections from the transmission to the radiator, replace the line or the connections or just the O-rings in the connections. If it's leaking from the transmission housing where the engine and transmission mates, then it may be the from pump or Torque Converter. The leak could be coming from the CV joint inner shaft where it connects to the transmission. Good luck and keep am eye on your transmission oil level, low transmission fluid will cause transmission failure.

Fluid leak from the seal between the transmission and engine about a drip every 5 seconds when running


would suspect that it is a rear main oil seal in the engine...not good and costly to repair since the engine and transmission need to be seperated for a 10 dollar part. is it oil that is leaking?

Spark Plugs


The oil on the spark plug usually comes from the valve cover seal or the spark plug tube. The valve cover seals to the tube and the tube seals to the head. The tube is usually a tight fit in to the head with a little sealant. The tubes can be purchased at the chrysler dealer or possibly at a local parts store. As for the red fluid,it is automatic transmission fliud . It is used in the manual transmission as well as the power steering system. You could have an axle seal leak, transmission shifter seal leak, power steering seal leak, depending on which side of the vehicle is wet.

2004 chrysler sebring transmission was leaking but now has stop


Keep a close eye on the level, and watch for drops in driveway etc. Even try placing something under the transmission area if you have to, like cardboard or plywood. Good chance it didn't cure itself, but stranger things have happened I guess. Hope you used Mopar transmission oil to re-fill it. believe it or not, I don't work for Chrysler but have heard many a story about chrysler transmissions acting up because of wrong fluid in them, even when lube places tell you it's o.k to use something else. Just a heads up.

Transmission leak!!


Had similar problem (Jetta 5 cylinder 2006) - leaks in the timing chain cover, large oil leak near the tranny (sounds like your problem), leak from "ALT belt side crank pulley seal and leak from oil pan. This car has only 23,000 kilometers about 14,000 miles on it!!! The dealer repaired this at no charge...
