Odd pooling of fluid

My 99 mazda 626 is having a wierd pooling of what seems to be trans fluid. there is no problem with the steering, braking, and the oil levels are fine. but this fluid is pooling under the intake box and is splashing in that area up to the brake fluid box and other side of the maf sensor... cant pinpoint where its coming from... anyone know of any suggestions?

I had the same problem, it was the transmission vent hose getting pinched which causes the transmission fluid to overflow through the dipstick tube. i put a new hose and that stopped the overflowing fluid. hope that helps

Hello I have a mazda 626 2001 and my brake red light is on and my emergency brake is off

Check the fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir. If it is low then the system has a leak or the brake friction material has worn down. Have the brake system checked at a shop when in doubt.

Squeeking noise when turning wheel of my 2002 mazda 626

  • Check the steering fluid, if you need to add fluid do so and also check the hose of the steering if there is a leak. If the noise is still there after you add a steering fluid then visit a local mechanic to check the pump.

Sounds like a pump issue, check line pressure. If it does have a bad trans pump it can be changed with out removing the trans. But also check the fluid level if you haven't already.
