Question about 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Transmission leaking, poured the sealant in it and that did nothing for it. Do I need to let it sit for a while and see if that helps the problem?

Hi

Never known anyone to have success with this product.

Try cleaning off gearbox area to trace the source.

You might be lucky, and by tightening up sump pan screws, or a pipe union, this will give you a cure.

But I expect it could be the front converter seal ? and this will require G/box removal.

Hope you are Lucky !

John.

Started my car and i believe transmission fluid pouring out


Well, there are transm. fluid cooling lines in that area, down kind of low on the car, running from the transmission to the fluid tank or reservoir on the radiator. And when the engine is running, the transmission pump is running, so the lines would be pushing fluid. One is a line bringing fluid to the radiator, and the other is a return line. If one of these lines broke, it will need replacing. You will have to find the leak and see what's up.

1997 ford f140 2wd 4.6 automatic transmission is leaking, have replaced pan, gasket and rear seal what else will cause it to leak? leaking out rear of pan, you pour fluid in and it runs out without even...


On the front of your truck where your radiator is there is a transmission cooler,there are lines running from your transmission to that cooler they could be leaking, the transmission cooler is behind the grill on the front of your truck infront of your radiator, and as far as a stop leak, myself it is alot cheaper than buying a transmission, I would suggest that you use CD2 transmission stop leak, just a suggestion.

Transmission is not "engaging" at all- fluid


I'm guessing you mean transmission fluid poured out? That would certainly explain why it won't move. The most common leak point for older automatic transmission cars are the transmission cooler lines. They run from the radiator to the transmission (the cooler is built into the radiator) and they are made of steel so they are prone to rust. I would start looking there. The other leak points would be the lower pan, axle seals, and where the case bolts together. Take a look at the radiator and you should see some small steel lines bolted to the radiator. Follow them and look for heavy rust that is wet with fluid.

All the fluid leaked out of the transmission of my 95 Z28 and when I pour more fluid into it it just runs back out. Does this mean I need a new Transmission?


Where is it leaking from. It could be a damaged fluid line going to the transmission cooler or the cooler could be damaged. Could even be a damaged transmission sump.

call a rebuild shop, see if they have one sitting on the shelf. give them money and your old transmission, they will give you a rebuilt one. pay particular attention to their installation instructions. 17 years is a very long life for a transmission.

Transmission a mechanic said a hose rotted and the transmission died?? how can i fix it without replacing the tranny


Although this is may not work depending on transmission wear and tear, you will need to do this if you plan to replace transmission any way. Replace the damaged hose. Next I would get a transmission filter kit. This is a simple kit that is sold at part stores and includes filter and gasket. You will need to buy transmission fluid and a gasket sealant. Jack up the vehicle, drain the transmission fluid by loosening the transmission pan, if you need help finding this check the gasket shape you purchased. The pan will most likely be stuck a little from the previous gasket sealant. Carefully pry it apart with a flat head screwdriver or pry bar, transmission fluid will go when pan is dropped, so, be careful in placement of pan and how much you loosen all bolts. when pan is dropped check for metal shavings inside. If you have none things are looking good. Remove filter most oftenly attached with phillips head screws. Check this filter for debris and metal. If you do not spot anything serious by now, replace using new filter. Ensure you have a clean surface for the new gasket after removal of old gasket. Once you have this done, add a thin layer of sealant to pan and place gasket on top of it. Apply another thin layer of sealant to the other side of gasket and reinstall to transmission using correct tightening sequence and torque. These bolts do not need to be overly tight. Most leaks happen from overtightening bolts to pan. Usually a lil over hand tight is fine, but, check with you parts store. Add fluids to proper level and then you will be able to test the transmission out. I know it sounds like alot, but, it cheaper than buying a new transmission if you don't have to.

No reverse willnot select reverse, auto, and are the engines free spinning ?


check your transmission fluid.....if possible use a transmission additive to try and solve this....or top up with transmission fluid as required...check for leaks under your car of colored oil..usually red...you could have a leak and losing transmission fluid...if so top up with a sealant fluid for transmissions...this usually works for small leaks...you have to drive about 30kms to get the fluids to circulate...for the seal to work..

How to check manual transmission fluid level on 2005 chevy aveo


oh the side of your transmission, above the halfway point, there will be a plug that you can open. (don't open the plug on the bottom of the transmission as that's the drain plug). When you open the plug, some fluid should leak out meaning it's at the right level. If nothing leaks out, pour some fluid in until it starts to run out and then replace the plug.
