If leaking around bottom of tube, take dipstick out, and see if any bracket on tube is bolted down to secure it. You should be able to pull the tube straight up and out of the case. Should be an O-ring on the tube that needs replacing.

    my dipstick has 2 mounting brackets and a bend leading to the bottom of the pan

  • montehammons Jan 22, 2013

    Loosen both brackets if you can, and try to lift up on the tube. If the tube goes into the engine block, there will be an O-ring on it for sealing. If it goes in through the oil pan, I don't know, the pan may have to be removed.

    I see it is to the pan. yes it will need offing-a solder or brazed joint has probably sprung a leak.

Transmission leak out dipstick and hear vacum leak


The vacuum leak is not from the transmission, there are no vacuum lines hooked to the transmission it is fully electronically controlled. As far as the fluid goes is the transmission overfilled? Does it operate normally? To check the source of the vacuum leak get a can of Carburetor spray and spray it around the noise, when you hear a loud sucking noise and the engine slows down struggles and starts to stall then you found the leak.

My 88 dodge dakota has a leak between the engine and the transmission. What could the problem be and how can I fix it?


If it is motor oil, it should match the oil on the dipstick.
If it is automatic transmission fluid, it should be sort of redish and match your "tranny" fluid on that dipstick.
If it is thicker than motor oil, it should be manual transmission oil.
Motor oil leaks from the "rear main seal".
Transmission fluid or gear oil leak from the front transmission seal.
All 3 of these can look like they are coming from about the same place, where you have said.
All three of these require you separate the motor and transmission to fix them, and that means taking the transmission out of your truck.
Pretty expensive if you pay to have it done.
If you take the " tranny" out, most shops will replace both seals (one front, engine and one rear, tranny)
Depending on how much it is leaking and other things, lots of people let it leak.
If you are using a lot of fluid, perhaps it\'s time to think about repairs.
Be blessed

What does it mean when the car drags like the brakes are on after driving for 20 mins and transmission oil leak on driveway


Check trany fluid level , add if low.
To check level - engine on(running) , shift lever in park position . Locate transmission dipstick , check level , depending on temperature of fluid (roughly) , make sure it's within appropriate marks on dipstick.
If leak on trany is excessive , fix it or check level frequently.

I have a 2001 ford windstar with the V6 engine, when traveling for a long distance I started to get Transmission oil leaking and when the car cooled down it was fine......I was told the filter could be...


Where is the oil actually leaking from? If it is from the bottom of bell housing the leak is from the oil seal on the shaft at the back of the torque converter. This is transmission out job to get at it. It is best to have this fixed as the low fluids that will result from the leak will result in poor torque converter performance and then to worn gear clutches ruining the whole transmission. As an interim measure it is possible to top up the autobox when it gets low by adding the right (really important that it is right) fluid via the transmission dipstick tube (NOT the engine oil dipstick tube).

Minor transmission leak


I would ask for a clarification request, but lets see if I can help you. Dependent on where the transmission is leaking would help greatly, but a few minor things to look at are such things like your transmission dipstick. Yes, the transmission dipstick, when removed, you'll notice a small "vent" hole in it, where it goes into the tube of the transmission dipstick. This is to allow the transmission to "vent", for if it weren't allow to vent internal pressures, then the front seal could start leaking as well as the rear seal of the transmission. If you're experiencing a leak around the transmission's pan's gasket, then a DIY (Do It Yourself), Transmission Service is in order. To know how to perform this task, I recommend a Haynes Manual (located at any Auto Parts Store), for your particular vehicle.

Should the drip or leak be at the front seal, which you will see evidence of the drip around the bell-housing or the part that bolts to the Engine, then the transmission would have to be removed to have the front seal replaced...However, BG® sells automotive products and they do sell a "Transmission Conditioner" that will lubricate dry seals or expand them to stop the leak. The old shade tree way (which I wouldn't recommend), is adding Brake Fluid to the transmission which causes the seals to swell and "perhaps", stop the drip.

Once again, should it need to be taken out to repair the front or rear seal(s), remember to clean the Vent Hole on the transmission dipstick or the problem will occur again.

Hope this helps,

WHERE TO ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID ON A 1997 TOYOTA COROLLA WITH AUTO TRANSMISSION. ALSO, THERE IS A STREAM OF TRANS OIL EXITING JUST AHEAD OF THE TRANSMISSION ITSELF. IT APPEARS THAT EITHER THE SUPPLY-LINE...


you can add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube for the transmission. as far as the lines, most transmission fluid lines are rubber in the middle and aluminum on the ends, so they shouldn't rust. if its leaking fluid that fast, its probably a hole in the rubber part. also make sure the dipstick tube is seated well in the transmission. neither one of which is hard to fix, just determine where the leak is coming from first

Transmission Dipstick


you have no dipstick in the manual trans. it's non-maintenance kinda system and its sealed.
unless it's leaking you don't need service.
