u get a second look your self by looking at the transmission u dont have to take anything apart to find the leak the oil pan is easy so check that one first if u see any fluid on or around the pan then the seal is shot that dont mean the tranny will burn up, just keep an eye on the fluid level second the rear transmission seal is located at the back of the tranny where the rear drive shaft slips into the transmission if you notice fluid around there and on the drive shaft thats leaking also but like i said just because u have a few minor leaks dont mean the tranny will blow up just as long as you keep an eye on the fluid level. do your home work and find a good transmission shop that will gaureentee the there work at a decent price.
If the leak is minor take it to a radiator shop and they can probably fix it for you for much cheaper than replacing it. Try tightening the hose, if it is leaking from the crimped end of the hose (where the hose mets the connector), then you will have to replace the hose. If you are getting green then its the actual radiator thats leaking and happen to be leaking trough transmission cooler vents.
On an automatic tranny, the tranny oil pan is removed to drain the tranny fluid - a somewhat messy job. Typically when this done the tranny filler is replaced. A new pan gasket is installed in this procedure.
On the manual tranny, there is a drain plug at the bottom side of the tranny to drain the oil.
I have used a home made setup using a suction pump with small diameter tubing to **** the fluid out from the tranny filler tube. This is when I was replacing the filter and I dropped the pan. I did the suction routine to avoid all that fluid dripping out when you loosen the pan.
Have you located the leak? Is it from the tranny oil pan or maybe from a tranny cooler line?
You need to find the leak (probably in one of the cooler lines or the pan gasket) fix it, and make sure you have the correct fluid level. If you do all that and it still won't go you probably wore out the internal components from driving it with low fluid. Good luck.
check tranny pan gasket for leaking if it look wet or signs of leaking replace it.make sure tranny fluid level is correct.crank engine look under neath car try pin point leak .is its a fast leak torque converter seal and governor speed sensor seal.
fix where its leaking at look at where torque converter is look where governor is speed sensor .tranny oil pan gasket. look where tranny lines goes to radiator for leak. make all these checks. fix the leaks. fill transmission back to proper level.check and see how it works.
