Question about 2004 Scion xB
Transmission fluid is leaking.can i do it myself?
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.
