Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Transmission Leak I have a leak in my tranmission. It is on the left front cornor. I thought it was the pan gasket, so I changed it but it still leaks. There is the dip stick holder right above this cornor of the transmission. Can this keak? and if so how do you fix it? There also seems to be some sort of plug right above the dip stick holder, maybe this is the problem? Any advise would help. If anyone knows where to get a diagram for this transmission please let me know.

Tal, The dipstick tube does have a cup seal that is used to seal the tube to the transmission case. They can leak, you would have to remove the bolt on the transmission bell housing, pull the tube up out of the hole and replace the seal.
The plug you refer to is for pressure testing. It is a pipe plug fitting that can be resealed with teflon tape from the hardware store.
Good luck let me know.
PS. make sure the transmission fluid level is not over full.
Regards,

I have a constant drip between transmission pan and the small pan in front of it i changed the pan gasket but its still driping alot


knowing the make and model would help, but the most likely problem is the front seal in the transmission is leaking. you have to remove the transmission to replace the seal. it sits about even where the trans bolts to the engine and when they leak they leak down and blow back and looks as if the pan is leaking.. if its a rear wheel drive vehicle.. most will have a metal cover in front of the pan, you can remove the cover and with a flash light look up and see if the leak is coming from the seal.

Leaking transmission fluid


Transmission oil is very viscous and will leak from the smallest opening. There is a set tension to do the pan screws up to and if you exceed that setting the gasket squeezes out and the oil will leak out. It is best to use an adhesive sealent on the tranny body first ,put up the gasket let it set for a few minutes . paut adhesive seealnt on the pan and bolt up with minimun bolt tension. After a few minutes retension the bolts correctly. As a firther check remove the inspection plate under the torque converter and check for oil leaks down the front ot the tranny behind the converter.

I have a 1995 chevy silverado with a leak coming from the front of the transmission, any thoughts and how much i may have to pay..i already changed the pan gasket


It sounds like the transmission front pump seal, if thats the case the trans. has to be pulled out to replace the seal.It will not be a cheap fix at a shop good guess around 200-500$ est.

Transmission fluid is leaking how do i fix it


Hi Sandra:
Normally if oil or transmission fluid mixes with coolant it will turn milky looking like a milkshake. Your leak must be pretty fresh. from your description that it is coming out of the coolant overflow I am thinking you have a radiator transmission cooler leaking into the cooling system.

You will need a new radiator and possibly all the coolant hoses if they have become soft from the transmission fluid.

In most cases if your getting transmission fluid in the radiator it is cause by a bad transmission cooler that is built into the radiator and the fix is to replace the radiator.

The repair will change in price from where the leak is coming from. If the pan is leaking or the rear seal your looking at $100.00 or less. If the front seal is leaking then around $550.00. The most common leak is the pan gasket. Also if the transmission fluid and filter have not been replaced in the last 30,000 miles and the pan is leaking then I suggest doing this also why the pan is off .

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I am leaking Transmission fluid as fast as I am putting it in. where are the hoses located to see if one of them is cracked.


The only "hoses" are the cooler hoses located on the front of the transmission.
Are you sure there is no leak coming from the Transmission Fluid Pan? These tend to leak first before anything.
Also is the Dip Stick/Filler Tube correctly inserted into the Transmission? Sometimes these are mistakenly taken out-of-place, and are not correctly seated, allowing new fluid to pour out.
The other place(s) to look are near and around the Solenoid (box-shaped on from of the Tranmission and around the Sensors. The Solenoid has a gasket that may be leaking. The Sensors have "O"-rings that also leak.
The best thing is to clean up any spilled fluid, jack-up and support the front of the vehicle and isolate where the fluid is comming from.

Transmission leak


You can have a leak at the pan on the bottom or the front pump seal or the tail shaft seal at the very rear. Most of the time it will be the pan gasket. The constant heat and vibration can cause this to occur. Not a big deal. You can pick up another pan gasket and filter and change them both. The tail seal is an easy fix also. Remove the drive line and pop the seal out and place the new one in. If it is the front pump seal you will have to remove the transmission to gain access for replacement. Good luck.
