SOURCE: 1992 ford f150 transmission leak

more than likely your torque converter. best way to find out is to clean everything off, let me say this so there is no confusion. CLEAN EVERTHING OFF! get some carborator cleaner or something like it ie break cleaner and really clean everthing. get it all new looking. then you can look for blown out seals at the same time. Once it is clean and you don't see any leaks just wait. You may need to put some papers under the car and wait to see where the leak is coming from. Also, if you havent done this make sure the transmission is full, make sure the leak is made up of red fluid. Also no Fords use Transmission fluid in the Power Steering. Check all of this out also. If it uses transmission fluid, check your rack and pinion to see if it is leaking. Fords as much as I love them are famous for blowing rack and pinion, and power stearing lines.

hope this helps.

SOURCE: ATF leaking from Cooling line connectors at Transmission

Please trace the leakage before you are sure of what to replace. But I bet you will have to replace the entire hoses that distribute the ATF in case of rust or expirt.

Good luck.

rate this please.

SOURCE: I have a coolant leak near the Transmission of a

Mind did the same thing. The heater core went bad and on that model the box drains out under the car were condensation from the ac would let it out, instead of leaking inside the car on the passenger side on the carpet like older cars do.

SOURCE: my 2001 ford F150 is leaking water from above the trans

First off, is this water or antifreeze? If it's water it could be coming from the heat/air conditioning. If it's antifreeze, it's probably either a heater hose or the back of the intake manifold.

How to find leak in ford f150 transmission

Hoist the truck and look. Seriously.
There are only a few places where it can be leaking.
If it is leaking at the front of the engine, check the cooling lines and the condition of the radiator. If it is leaking at the torque converter, check the mounting bolts. Most likely, it is leaking from the transmission pan gasket.

1998 f150

At idle and the vehicle in nuetral check your transmission fluid level. If it is low your will need to add ford only transmission fluid which will come in a variety of manufactures. Don't use the multi vehicle fluid. You will then need to see where it is leaking from. If the fluid level is good look at the color of the fluid on the stick. if it is brown that means it is burnt and probably need a transmission.

Oil leak out of tranfer case now transmision is out of oil why did this happen on my freind 1998 ford f150

the oil leaked, either through an oil seal or where the case is joined, also indicating a leak on where either a gasket or gasket sealer should be applied.

refill the oil, drive it and check for where the oil is leaking from.

Replace the oil seal or redo the transmission assembly and ensure that proper gasket sealant is used where needed.

there is no way transmission can leak into the engine.

Transmission fluid can leak into the radidiator and then into the engine cooling system. This happens when the coil inside the radiator is damage and the tranny fluid mixes with the anit freeze.

Only cure is to replace the radiator.

If it is an automatic the best thing to use is chrysler automatic trans fluid Most 1998 Ford F150s take Mercon V...also check for leak. The transmission dipstick is located on the passengers side rear. Near the firewall / or back of the engine. The dipstick is color yellow or red. use long funnel.

well check heater hose connections to heater core and try to get back in there to see if it is comming from the intake but if the leak is low it is possibly a freeze plug or exspansion plug in the back of the moter if so youll have to seperate the motor and trans to fix prob.

Transmission clutch

The slave cylinder inside the transmission is probably leaking. Try pumping the clutch pedal a few times. sometimes this will let you shift.
