    The left output drive shaft on 1996 Dodge Caravan (3.0L) is leaking tranny fluid. The CV joint enters the trans housing and it is encircled by a ring with 6 to 8 bolts. I assume this is a leaking drive shaft seal. What does it take to replace it? What is the expected labor value given to this job in shop manuals?

A good mechanic should replace the seal with in 2-3 hours, mainly tearing apart your drive wheel on that side along with the drive shaft. This is a good time to replace the drive shaft if any of your CV joints are leaking.
Good Luck!! PHX

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan leaking fluid


Since the Caravan is front wheel drive, there would be no transmission lines running to the rear of the vehicle. This reduces the possibilities to either a fuel leak, or a brake line. If you smell the fluid you should be able to tell immediately if it were gasoline. This would be a dangerous thing. Fuel leaks must be isolated and repaired quickly to avoid risk of fire. If it were brake fluid, and the leak were stead, you should, if you inspect the brake master cylinder reservoir, a lower level of fluid than normal, possibly even a total loss of fluid in the rear chamber. If so, then the brake line to the rear has probably ruptured from age/corrosion. It must be repaired or replaced.

Transmission leak


More than likely this is the transmission filter gasket leaking. They come as a kit with a new filter and a gasket. Be sure and check the level of transmission fluid as per your manual. If there is not sufficient fluid in there it can ruin the transmission.You may already be experiencing slipping in the transmission. The most common leak on a vehicle is the rear main seal. Nearly every car/truck eventually does that. Any other leaks are not acceptable and your car is trying to warn you.

Transmission fluid is leaking out of my 2000 Dodge Caravan (Fuel Flex Engine). I have had the transmission completely looked over and had "o" rings replaced in October. Is there something else...


I'd take it to a mechanic, the leak is a symptom you need to get the fault cured. You're going to end up with a dead transmission if it runs out of fluid while you're on a journey.

Trasmission leaking and slipping. When you put fluid in its all on the ground.only slips when low on fluid. Could it be the seal?


Depending on the location of the leak from under the van. With the van setting on level ground have someone to fill the transmission with fluid( do not overfill) look under van to see if the fluid is coming from the front or rear or middle of transmission. If you cannot look under the van then use a large piece of cardboard and slide it under the van before you try to fill it to locate the leak. leak could be front or rear seals leaking or the pan gasket leaking. hope this will help you.
