Question about Cars & Trucks
I started my car and there is transmission fluid pouring out of the bottom of motor
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.

You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.

Check with chevy a dealership service (phone call) , there are 2 different types if your car is an automatic. If your car is a standard , it could be gear lube , or even Automatic trans fluid.

The fluid is most likely hydraulic fluid from the slave cylinder,I would like to be able to say that's the only problem but the problem you describe indicates that something is wrong in the clutch also.You say kinda like it's stuck in gear,can you describe this better for me?

SOURCE: Transmission Fluid
THERE IS NO DIPSTICK, THERE IS A RED CAP BELOW THE AIR TUBE BETWEEN THE AIR BOX AND THE THROTTLE BODY. UNSCREW IT AND THAT IS WHERE YOU PUT THE FLUID IN. TO CHECK THE FLUID YO NEED TO GET UNDER THE CAR WHILE IT IS ON A LEVEL SURFACE AND REMOVE THE 11MM PLUG (THAT IS JUST UNDER THE PASSENGER SIDE CV AXLE) WHILE THE CAR IS IDLING. FLUID SHOULD DRIBBLE OUT, NOT GUSH OUT.
