You are going to have to post more info, if the oil is definitely trans oil bearing in mind the Power steering uses the same colour fluid.
The leak could be from the prop end if so oil seal, front end between engine and box first motion shaft oil seal or in the middle the gearbox sump or the level plug connection.

SOURCE: leaked tranny fluid.

Your transmission fluid runs to the front of the car in different lines for cooling. you busted one of the lines. figure out what is broken by looking under car when running (in park with brake on), preferably while parked halfway on a curb for better visilbility. Fix the problem or have mechanic fix it. You shouldn't keep driving, without AT fluid, the car wont move...
Hope this helps

SOURCE: fluid leak appears to be off of transmission

Yes there should be 2 plugs on the side of the tranmission for this. one at the bottom is for draining and one about 1/2 to 3/4 up the side of the trans is for filling.

See if you can find the leak and fix that first. After its fixed then get the right fluid for your truck, check owners manual, and fill it to the top of that fill plug.

Manual trans fluid is good for 100k or more.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid leaking from bottom of

It is NOT the transmission pan gasket or bolts ?
You have 2 trany line coolers, 1 fill tube, and the tailshaft seal, all could be culprits.
I would say clean the botton of the trany pan off completely, and see if it leaks WITHOUT the truck running.
Then start the truck and see if it leaks, if not, then put it in drive, and see if it is leaking.
Please let me know so I may help you further.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid leaks out from

sounds like it could be a seal for your fill tube, or could be broken or loose cooler lines, they are all in that general area, crawl under, have someone fill it and look to see wherre it is coming out. take a flashlight with you.

Where is dipstick for transmission located on 2007 CTS Cadillac


Tranny fluid. Your owners manual says you should never need to check it, unless you have a leak. I agree with Gene.

When should you change transmission fluid on a 2010 chevy equinox 4 cylinder


Our research indicates that your vehicle does not have a transmission fluid dipstick. These types of transmissions are designed to be maintenance free. In order to check the transmission fluid, your vehicle likely has check valve on the bottom of the transmission on the bottom of your car. Your car must be level when the fluid is checked and we therefore recommend having a mechanic with a hydraulic lift or underground bay check your transmission fluid. Any fluid leaks for this type of transmission should be treated by a mechanic.

I have fluid leaking from the bottom of the transmission. Could it be a seal, gasket or do I have to replace the transmission?


What vehicle?
What leaks?

There is no reason to replace anything but the
pan gasket or side case drive axle seals, if you have a front
wheel drive transaxle

You have to get under these vehicles & provide
some info.

They should call this site the Guessing Game Place

Why its leaking transmission fluid from bottom of radiator


The trani fluid runs through the radiator to cool it. Sounds like one of your Trani lines is leaking at the radiator connection

Transmission fluid & radiator fluid keeps getting low. know approx. where leak is, drivers side front on inside of front tire. would a leak in radiator cause trans. fluid to leak also from radiator?...


Your transmission fluid runs to your cooling system to cool the transmission oil. So, in answer to your question, one of the two transmission lines (one in, bottom and one out, top) could be leaking from the cooling system.

Bring your vehicle in for a cooling system pressure check. Another thing to keep in mind when inspecting leaks is that where you see the leak may not necessarily be where the leak is from. While the leak will drip down, the wind from when you're driving will splatter the leak all over the under-carriage of your vehicle making it look like leaks are happening where they in fact, are not.

2005 Nissan Frontier transmission fluid leaking into the radiatior.


you have a possible leak inside the bottom tank which the fluid runs through to be cooled before it returns to the transmission.
It is like a little tank inside the bottom tank and if that leaks the fluid will mix with the water.
You will have to have the bottom tank removed to repair the problem or buy another radiator

Red fluid dripping from bottom of car, is comming from a black cover (maybe transmision oil?)


Red fluid it auto matic transmission fluid. The black cover is the bottom of the transmission where the transmission filter is. Most of the time.. unless you recently had the transmission filter changed is inthe hose area where the hoses fromthe radiator connect to the transmission.

It is still quite possible for your transmission pan gasket to be leaking. Most of the time people think that by just tightening up the bolts that they fix the leak when in fact the over torque the boltrs and it leaks even more. If the transmission pan gasket is leaking buy a new gasket making sure the bolts are tightened per the manufactures torques.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Brownish fluid leaking from the small mannifold on the passenger side of the car in front of the radiator...is this transmission fluid?


Good chance it's the transmission fluid. The passenger side of the radiator is the transmission cooler side and the coolant is leaking from the transmission lines. There should be two lines, one on top which is the inlet and the bottom one which is the return line. Check to make sure there is no corrosion along the lines or that the line has not come loose at the radiator. Locate the leak and repair or replace the lines. Good luck and take care not to run low on transmission fluid, low fluid in the system will cause the transmission to burn out.
