Where on the transmission is it leaking? If its the pan yes, its real easy. but if its comming from your torque converter or anything else no. So get some carb cleaner and a stiff bristled brush. clean the are that its coming from very well and find the actual location. Also if its the pan, find out the order that the bolts hold it in. Also if its the pan replace your filter while you already there.

If its leaking fron the transmission pan gasket, yes its very easy, and thats the most likely cause. Just alot of 10mm bolts, and a drain plug. make sure you get the correct fluid from toyota, it will say what fluid it takes on the dipstick... probably Type T-IV

SOURCE: transmission fluid leak

Get underneath and dry off as much as possible all of the fluid you see. If it is a bad leak, it will drip when the vehicle is off. Place a piece of cardboard down under the vehicle and you will be able to find the area where it is leaking. If it is not too bad, you can pick up and additive from an auto parts store and add it to your tranny fluid. This normally helps to "condition" the seal that is in question...more or less helps the seal to swell for a period of time. Try this first and see where it is coming from. Then, come back and post where you found the leak coming from. Usually it is the tailshaft seal located where the drive shaft connects to the yoke which in turn is "butted" up to the tailshaft housing of the transmission....or the transfer case.

Post back what you find and we'll tell you how to fix what is wrong.

On the front of your truck where your radiator is there is a transmission cooler,there are lines running from your transmission to that cooler they could be leaking, the transmission cooler is behind the grill on the front of your truck infront of your radiator, and as far as a stop leak, myself it is alot cheaper than buying a transmission, I would suggest that you use CD2 transmission stop leak, just a suggestion.

Transmission is not "engaging" at all- fluid


I'm guessing you mean transmission fluid poured out? That would certainly explain why it won't move. The most common leak point for older automatic transmission cars are the transmission cooler lines. They run from the radiator to the transmission (the cooler is built into the radiator) and they are made of steel so they are prone to rust. I would start looking there. The other leak points would be the lower pan, axle seals, and where the case bolts together. Take a look at the radiator and you should see some small steel lines bolted to the radiator. Follow them and look for heavy rust that is wet with fluid.

It sounds like a transmission line has gone bad. Its not an easy fix it takes special tools and time to trace down. It may be best for a mechanic to do it.

P0700 am I able to fix this myself?


P0700 - Transmission Control System Malfunction

HI, this will need the attention of a skilled transmission tech. the TCM(transmission control module/PCM) is signaling an issue that is a major concern. A diagnostic scan is needed at this time.

The most common issue will be a fault wiring harness but, this could also be an issue that concerns the speed sensor connections as well.

NOTE: Low fluid level can be the cause of many transmission problems. If the fluid level is low locate and repair the leak then check and adjust the fluid level per the Service Information

This repair will cost around 1500 or so. the PCM , if damaged, is a dealer part.(must be ordered and installed by the dealer)

1998 pontiac transport 3.4 auto leaking trans fluid


It sounds like the Transmission line has a leak. Check the transmission line from the transmission to the radiator. You have two steel lines which runs to and from the transmission to the transmission cooler in the radiator. The line could be corroded and may need to be replaced, good luck and service the transmission too. The transmission on the transport are know to have problems when ran low on fluid or dirty transmission filter.
Good luck and hope this helps.
