    Are you sure this is not ATF, that hole is the weep hole for the rear main seal and the input seal on the rans.

I have a constant drip between transmission pan and the small pan in front of it i changed the pan gasket but its still driping alot


knowing the make and model would help, but the most likely problem is the front seal in the transmission is leaking. you have to remove the transmission to replace the seal. it sits about even where the trans bolts to the engine and when they leak they leak down and blow back and looks as if the pan is leaking.. if its a rear wheel drive vehicle.. most will have a metal cover in front of the pan, you can remove the cover and with a flash light look up and see if the leak is coming from the seal.

Oil leak between oil pan and transmission.


Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age.
I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.

Transmission oil is not drained from the trany, you have to have a replacement system it filters the trany fluid while the engine is running.

Timming chain cover coolent leak 1997 ford explorer 4.0 pushrod


no they dont make a partial gasket kit... unless youve damaged the oil pan gasket, the one that ison there should be fine... put some black silicone rtv sealant where the front cover and oil pan/ block meet. if youve damaged the gasket you have to drop the pan.

Cannot locate transmission filter or instructions to replace


ok, here's the deal. there are 2 types of transmissions one with an external oil filter( kinda looks like the oil filter for the engine) and then there is the other type of transmission that was produced later on the 4 cylinder engines that doesnt have a removable filter. it does have a screen that is not servicable, it can only be replaced during the rebuild of the transmission. this design is supposed to be "back flushed" to remove all debris. Most good transmission shops have this type of system that pressureizes the system and does this.

If your gonna do this on your own, what you will need to do is buy 4-5 quarts of transmission fluid, drain the oil from the pan on the front of the engine, reinstall it, add the fluid, drive for 30 min, and then repeat the process.
