If the fluid is down by the oil pan then I would check the water pump and the lower radiator hose

Manual how to replace transmision oil


The easiest way to do it would be loosen the transmission oil pan bolts on one side of the pan and work your way around each side of the pan working from one corner. As you work your way around fluid will start to leak from the initial corner. Let the fluid leak out until it is down to the level of the pan. Hold the pan up and finish removing the remaining bolts and then dump remaining fluid still in the pan. Change the fluid filter while you have the pan off and clean the pan and gasket surface and re-install the pan using a new gasket. Then fill with clean fluid and you are good to go.

Leaking transmission fluid


Transmission oil is very viscous and will leak from the smallest opening. There is a set tension to do the pan screws up to and if you exceed that setting the gasket squeezes out and the oil will leak out. It is best to use an adhesive sealent on the tranny body first ,put up the gasket let it set for a few minutes . paut adhesive seealnt on the pan and bolt up with minimun bolt tension. After a few minutes retension the bolts correctly. As a firther check remove the inspection plate under the torque converter and check for oil leaks down the front ot the tranny behind the converter.

98 isuzu trooper leaks a/t fluid


No, but take rags and wipe off all the oil. Leave the skid plates off for the time being. Use jack stands or blocks to raise car so you can be under it. You need to run the engine so the transmission pump is working, then you will probably see where the oil is leaking from-possibly the pan gasket, maybe that component on the oil pan, or check if it is coming from higher up and collecting on the pan. Hope you find it. Pan gaskets are very easy to change. But you will have to replace the transmission fluid, as about 6-8 quarts will drain when you remove the pan. If you have to change the gasket, might as well change the transm. fluid filter as well-it's right underneath the pan, in most cases.

I have a 2003 Lexus ES 300 and when I do any highway driving at about 70mph for more than an hour, the transmission fluid overheats and the check engine light comes on. When it cools down, the check engine...


Flush your car's transmission fluid , but don't do it yourself or at local shops take it to Toyota and have them replace fluid and filter . Reason why they use special pumps to extract all fluids properly . And actually replace it correctly other shops the only thing they will do is drop the oil pan and drain the fluid in the oil pan only . There is still fluid all over the lines and torque converter . Recommend dealer all the way , it's only 10-30 $. Different .besides you get genuine parts and fluids . Good luck I hope this help .

I have a 1987 Vette that has never dripped anything onto the driveway, until last night. It is really leaking good all of a sudden. Where should I look first.


First you need to identify what's leaking? What color is fluid? Green, Red, Brown? and where under car is fluid leaking from center, front rt, etc... Another option is check ALL fluid levels - coolant, oil, power steering, transmission.

Oil is leaking from car, but there doesnt seem to be oil on the motor.


HI. This may be a oil pan gasket issue. The gasket is facing downward towards the ground, so the leaking oil in this area would not necessarily touch the enigne block. It would actually run down the sides of the bottom section of the oil pan and the rim areas. Also; make sure that it is indeed engien oil. It may be transmission fluid or power sterring fluid, as well. Raise the vehicle or slide under the frame to take a closer look at the oil and transmissin pans to locate the actual leak point.

In most cases of this nature, it will be either the transmission pan gasket or oil pan gasket that will be the culprit.

THE CAR STARTS, THE SHIFT LEAVER MOVES TO ALL THE POSITIONS BUT THE REANSMISSION NEVER ENGAGES AND THE CAR WONT MOVE.


how easily dies the shifter move? if it feels as if there is no pressure, then possibly the cable is broken. have you had the fluid level checked? maybe there is a leak you are unaware of.
