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.

sounds like you have a auto gearbox fluid leak and is running low on fluid needs topping up and the leak fixed try and locate the leak area if its under the box and its a mercedes unit the wiring connector seals are favorite if its a zf box the prob with fluid leaks are not norm a problem unless the oil cooler has been damaged by a stone chip its behind the front bumper liner but which either way the fluid is more than likely low if you keep driving it you may damage the gearbox

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??

Front diff oil leak


remove entire trans,remove 8 bolts and then remove front differential case at this time you will need to remove torque convertor with tube do not remove this tube from the convertor it drive the oil pump, the gasket is liquid gasket make sure surface is clean,also at this time replace torque convertor seal and seal tube this tube seperates transmission fluid from gear oil good luck

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.
