I have transmission fluid dripping from the end of the speedometer cable that connects to the instrument panel. What the heck is that all about?

The gear that is on the side of the transmission has a small seal, where the speedo cable goes into the speedometer take-off unit. When the seal goes bad, the cable drags trans fluid up the inner core. I have changed this device several times for the same symptom. Replace the speedo unit on the side of the transmission.

I drive a 94 mustang and all of a sudden there is fluids leaking under my driver side dash and ideas???


If it is a standard transmission, suspect the clutch master cylinder to be leaking clutch fluid internally. This fluid is usually clear in color. If it is green, suspect coolant leaking, possibly from the heater core inside the car on the passenger side. If the fluid is red and the vehicle is equipped with a speedometer cable,suspect transmission fluid traveling up the cable and dripping.

Transmission fluid leaking into radiator and dripping out onto ground


Sounds like you need a new radiator, it is cracked inside causing trans fluid to leak into it, as for dripping may have bad fitting on the rad for the oil cooler lines for the transmission.

Transmission fluid leakage from stater motor area. 5.7L Vortec


If transmission fluid is dripping off the bellhousing your torque converter seal is leaking or your transmission pump seal is leaking. Chances are the torque converter seal is leaking since the torque converter is spinning on it any time the engine is turning, the pump seal dosen't move it just keeps fluid inside the transmission. Even though it leaks with or without the engine running I'm willing to bet if you got underneath it with the engine running you will see it leaks more with the engine running. Now if either seal is leaking it will require the engine to be removed from the transmission to get to the seal. Sorry but this isn't going to be a cheap quick fix.

Add transmission fluid


On 91 vehicles there's a 17mm allen screw on the side towards the left front wheel. Open it add the oil there on a level surface and fill till oil reaches the hole and starts coming out. DO NOT FILL OIL FROM THE TOP where what seems to be a plug. It's actually the timing marks and houses the clutch. Put oil there and you'll need a new clutch.
