TRANSMISSION & POWER STERRING FLUID LEAKAGE

THE TRANSMISSION AND POWER STRERRING FLUID STARTED LEAKING AT THE SAME TIME. AS LONG AS I KEEP THEM FILLED I HAVE NO PROBLEMS. (IT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR ABOUT 4 MONTHS NOW) SO I'M THINKING IT MAY BE A HOSE OR HOSES NEEDING A REPAIR. THERE IS NO JUMPING GEARS GOING UNLESS THE FLUID BECOMES LOW , SO THAT WHY I BELIEVE IT'S A HOSE PROBLEM. THANK -YOU IN ADVANCED IF YOU CAN HELP.

Yellow fluid leaking


The yellow fluid is power steering fluid, the noise is because it is low. Repair your leak asap to prevent pump damage, not to mention the safety issue when you lose the power sterring

Hi Brotty, You know the transmission is leaking from one of the seals and that when you top up the ATF the problem goes away. You obviously have a leakage otherwise you would not need to keep topping up. Fix the leakage or have it fixed. Regards John

ON MY 2002 TRAILBLAZER, I HAVE TO KEEP ADDIND POWER STEERING FLUID ABOUT EVERY 5 MILES OR MORE. I DON'T SEE IT ON THE GROUND FROM LEAKING OUT, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT'S GOING. DOES ANYON


Ho Thomas, It sounds as if the leakage is when the vehicle is being driven that the leakage occurs. That means it is either from the pump or the box or the pipes going to and from. The leakage happens when the vehicle is being driven If you look at those areas you will see where it is wet with fluid and you'll then identify where the problem is. Regards John

Leaking either trans or power steer fluid. 1 or 2 drops per day under left front area


it sounds like power sterring, check level of fluid, inspect around pulley, if it is wet or oily looking, the seal is going bad, you can put some power sterring stop leak in it, it will buy you some time until you can change the pump

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.
