Question about 1989 Volvo 240
Came back from vacation, start car, put into drive, car doesnt move,engine running.check trans fluid, its low,added a quart, put into gear, car shifts just fine.few hours later, under car i find pink liquid escaping,coming from tightly capped ''fluid expansion tank''. car runs fine rest of day,next morning same problem, not shifting. let car warm up a little, after while it starts shifting inexplicably, but ''coolant expansion tank overflowing out of cap all day.this continues for a couple weeks but now adding transm fluid doesnt help it change gears, pink stuff still dripping, im totally annoyed. any ideas? there dont seem to be anyother leaks under car and it was running fine until the cold weather started to kick in.
The only fluid expansion tank I know of is for the cooling system,and if that is the case you my have a leak in the transmission cooler that is built into the radiator.
