Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

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?

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.

Transmission fluid leaking

The leak is from the electrical connector located on the front passenger side of the transmission just about the pan. The O-ring on the connector fails resulting in a leak. Talking to a friend at a parts counter for Chrysler this connector seems to be the item frequently replaced and seems to be the only problem. The way the leak looks on the transmission may falsely suggest that it is a pan gasket. I have seen this same problem on Mercedes as well that uses The NAG1 transmission which is what I have on my 2006 Grand Cherokee.

2002 Chrysler Sebring LTD Convertible, Mileage 58,300. Oil leak

That's a lot of work considering the low mileage on your car. Makes me suspect that you are taking it to the Dealership for service. if so , please be aware that dealerships are the most expensive place to have your car serviced and often do unnecessary work. If your warranty is over , find a trustworthy mechanic and tackle things one at a time. First ask him to determine where the oil is leaking from and repair it. Need more info about the trans "slip" before i sugest any action , could be several different minor problems. Good Luck.

Leaking transmission fluid

Yes, The soleniod pack is located on the outside of the transmission. There are a few bolts holding it on and a seal or o ring gasket behind it. The lines mght look corroded and rusted, but if they are not leaking then leave them alone. The inside of the line is just fine. You may borrowing trouble trying to replace them. The fitting and line could be brittle. You may have to purchase the solenoid pack from the dealer not sure. I would check you local auto parts store for the part first. Once the solenoid pack is replace, The tranmission might have to be reset to correct settings. The transmission can be reset by your local transmission shop. The transmission shop may do the repairs for a lot less then the dealer. I would inquire for an estiamate from your transmission shop just in case.

Good Luck

My transmission is leaking fluid. was told that this model a 1996

I would lean to a simple transmission leak inspect your transmission housing for leak when vehicle is in the air safely on jack stands and wheels off the ground and rear wheels chucked.... safety first! start by visually inspecting the transmission housing for noticable links then if none can be seen or theres soo much fluid you cant tell where its coming from clean the area with degreaser and then reinspect after cars been running and shifted through a few gears this can be doen while vehicle is still in air as long as its done safely! locate the leak and replace parts as needed could be from pan gasket or differential seals or from speed cable from top, the torque converter or even can leak from fill spout but not likely after you locate it replace part from local parts store or dealer or just have it done proffessionally but most selas can be replaced by knowledgable do it yourselfer! good luck and dont forget your rating!

Oil leak on 95 chrysler concorde. 3.5

first thing first... have you seen an actual oil spot/leak on the ground after the car has sat overnight. have you checked the seal around the oil filter.
If you have done those things and both are no... there is a chance it is burning the oil... what does the exhaust smoke look like ?

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.
