Well, it could be the pan leaking, or the tail seal, or the front pump seal. Those are your main culprits. You need to determine which one it is. Just one more place to check. Make sure the dipstick tube is not loose. There is usually a bolt that secures the tube in place. If the bolt has fallen out it may be leaking where it enters the pan.

Put too much trany fluid in my 1993 Ford f150 will it hurt my tranny

the marks on the stick are there for a reason.
too much fluid could cause foaming, causing air to enter internal fluid passage ways, which could cause transmission to lose power intermittently.

Put my trany back in after replacein a seal in the front filled it back up with trany fluid now my gears won't kick in well it's on my 93 Ford f150 way could be my problem

The last one of these problems i worked on was 2 quarts of fluid low. The owner, working on his car did not take the amount of fluid the converter would take in his calculations. We added the fluid and brought the level up on the stick and it fixed it. just 2 weeks ago !

I have a 97 Honda Passport,how do u check the transmission fluid?

Okay, this truck doesnt have a normal dip stick to check the fluid in trany,to check the trany fluid level engine must be warm and parked on level ground, being on level ground is important!, next start engine and move slector through all gears and ending in park, put ebrake on and let engine idle, then remove the check plug from the bottom of trany pan, note theres a drain plug and the level plug heres a diagram to help you locate the right plug, remove the plug with engine idling and the fluid should leak out, the fluid will stop when level is correct if the plug is removed and no fluid leaks out then add some until it drips out level hole.johnjohn2_50.gif

Vw jetta 98 revs shoots up after driving for a few kms

You will need to have the trany checked it may be low on fluid, theres a way of checking the fluid, i would have a job check it or if it a standard shift then the clutch may be slipping and need to be replaced but if its automatic trany then i would have the fluid checked i have run into this problem a few times and it was due to a leak a small leak in the trany oil and when the fluid got low the trany would slip and in some cases not shift or move. hope this is helpful, good luck.

91 mercury sable will crank but the reverse and drive gears don't work

Check you gear shifter cable, also check transmission fluid level, if all that checks good, time for transmission overhaul.

How do i inject the transmission fluid in the transmission

there is a small filler neck in frt. of the trany , with red cap on it. Brake the cap , there will be a plug under.
Proccedure : engine on idle , take of plug at the bottom of trany oil pan(with engine on idle!!!!! , if engine off , fluid will leak out) , use transfering pump to pump oil in to filler neck untill it starts leaking from bottom plug , wiat till it only drips , put bottom plug back in and torque it. Now you can shut engine off and seal filler neck.
Use only approved trany fluid .This trany takes syntetic fluid.

What service my honda pilot needs at 22500 miles

At 22500 Normal stuff like regular oil chages etc..

At 30,000-ish exchange all fluids.. Radiator, break, power stearing, trani (if auto)

On the trani - I strongly feel that a FULL fluid exchange should be done.. They normally only do a "pan drop" only exchanging about half the fluid or less.. Makes no sense to me.. Pay a little more and exchange ALL the trani fluid..
I have my 10 year old trani fluid fullly exchaned every 40-k to 50-k and now have 160-k on it with no leaks and works like the day it was new..

Most people dont understand that old/dirty fluids is what causes leaks and break down..

Also - have you breaks inspected..

My 1995 grand cherokee is leaking transmission fluid badly.I have an automatic transmission. I need help please!

well it depends on where it is leaking from if it is leaking from the pan in the seal area replace the seal and you might as well change the trani fluid and filter just to be on the safe side. If you cant find where it is leaking get a can of Gunk engine cleaner and clean the trani off nice and good the look for fresh leaks after driving a bit. If it looks like its a cracked case then you might as well just drop it and replace it. But the first thing is to pin point where it is leaking from. It could also be leaking from the trani fluid cooling lines.
