Transmission seal leak

Hey,
A friend bought a 99 dodge caravan a couple a month ago and it has been running fine until now. you see , the transmission pan is leaking, so i went under to see what the problem was. turned out to be that the pan is bent in one spot, like a rock was shot up into it or something i don't know. but i was wondering if you could fix it easliy.

It all depends on how severely it is bent. You can try to straighten it out, but if the flange won't mate with the trans smoothly, it will still leak. You may be better off getting a pan off of a wreck that is straight and replacing it.

Generally, rear seals are one circular ring, not two halves (If that is what you mean). Have to take the transmission off to access it and may have to take the engine apart to service this problem.

Automatic transmissions can fail at any mileage. First thing you need to do is check the fluid level, make sure the transmission is full, also check the condition of the fluid, burnt odor, strong varnish smell, or signs of contamination. If the level is correct, and the fluid is red in color, without any strong odors, you may have some type of valvebody issue, however, given my experience, these transmissions are prone for failure around this mileage.

94 town car leaking coolant


you have a leaking water pump... there is a "weep" hole at the bottom of it and when the inner seal goes bad it starts slowly leaking out of it as a warning sign to replace it. It will do that for a few days, or months even, until it starts leaking profusely.
