Dip stick tube has a rubber boot it slips thru, that seals it to trans. If its got a kick down cable there is a rubber o ring on that too, or front pump seal on trans is leaking.

My ford focus is leaking oil think it might be gearbox oil,


Is the oil you see reasonably clean or is it black. The gearbox oil would be cleaner than the engine oil. Gearbox leaks would most likely come from one of the following:-
  1. Drive shafts
  2. Gear change lever inputs,
  3. Speedo cable
  4. Reverse light switch
  5. Drain plug
  6. Input shaft seal (inside the bell housing).
Pig a piece of paper under the car when you park it at night to give you an idea where the drip is located and inspect the area above that position

My 1995 Geo Metro 1.3 L leaks a lot of transmission oil. What is the problem?


Faulty oil seal, simple as that, where it is will be for a garage to find.

There are three main oil seals, one each side of the gearbox (CV driveshaft seals) and the other which requires gearbox removal is the torque converter to gearbox oil seal. Hope its not that one!!

PS = I trust the gearbox level is correct and NOT overfilled as this will also happen,. Has anyone recently topped up trans and spilled fluid??

My daughter has 1995 Chevy Lumina with a 425 engine (?) that leaks oil. The intake valve has been replaced and it still leaks oil. The mechanic says he can't place the origin of the leak because the...


I had a '93 Chevy Lumina (sedan) with the 3.1L V6, and it was also leaking oil badly enough to coat the underside of the car with an oily sheen. A mechanic pointed me in the right direction. There is no distributor on this car, but there is a blank-off plate installed where the distributor used to be. The oil pump drive shaft runs off a gear meshed with the cam under this plate, which is also what the distributor used to be driven from. All I had to do was remove the plate, replace the gasket fitted between the plate and the opening, and oil could no longer seep through there. As I remember, I had to remove the air horn from the intake plenum to get at this plate. Hope this helps.
