Where the transmission and transfer case meet there is a weep hole,check for leakage out that hole...if it shows a leak you probably have a rear transmission seal leaking. if there is any sealer around where they meet someone tried to stop the leak without properly repairing it.

We have a 2001 Mazda Tribute and the yellow warning light on the dashboard is permanently on. Our mechanic is baffled. Can you help?

This vehical is notorious for problems, regardless of year 2000-2009, Same vehical as ford escape, mercury, You can disconnect the battery for 30 mins to reset indicator or You can go to most auto parts stores and have them put it on a check engine scanner for free and they can tell you what to replace plus they can clear the codes., but chances are with this vehical its going to be tranny related and big problems down the road. My friend just bought one 3 months ago with 70,000 miles and the tranny just burnt up o/d and reverse. $2000 fix. We had done a ton of research on this vehical and only found more problems. We were gonna do it ourselves but aamco had a sweet deal with warranty. Sell.Sell.Sell.

We have a 2001 Buick Lesabre. We just bought it 3 days ago. The day after we bought it, it made a clunking noise from below and the engine light came on. It stopped moving. The tranny fluid seems find...

I would call the buyer to get his mechanics # to see if this has been diagnosed before. It may be you bought a lemon. If the buyer will not give this info to you then most likely you were sold something that was too expensive for them to fix. Even so your only choice is to have a shop inspect this and then fix it yourself if you choose to.

2001 dodge 1500 4x4

did you drain the fluid, it may have lots of metal and be really gummed up causing it to over heat and burn off. Aside from that the most commonly overlooked "check engine" proplem is the O2 sensors, there should be 2 of them
