Those A5 trannies are junk and can set the vehicle on fire in less than 5 minutes with low fluid. Red fluid is tranny, oil is oil. Rear seal-oil- big repair. Tranny coolant pipes-Tranny fluid-small repair. Replace filter, fluid, and gasket-it's probably over due-and check again for leaks. rear tranny seal leak, average size job.. Never use the stop leak! Throwing flour on the tranny works better-Just kidding.

IT IS THE WATER-PUMP. PLEASE DON'T WAIT FOR IT TO OVER-HEAT BECAUSE THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE, AND VERY COSTLY. PRICE A HEAD-GASKET JOB AND COMPARE IT TO THE COST OF A WATER PUMP. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE. BEST OF LUCK.

SOURCE: Oil is leaking bad and

is the leak visually on the ground, then it seems like you could get under car and wipe a few things and see what leaks, thats a big leak, car would be leaving a smoke screen behind you from getting all over exhaust system. I would have to say, REAR MAIN SEAL BETWEEN MOTOR AND TRANS, OIL FILTER NOT TIGHT, Is oil all over the timing belt? front gasket/seal failure, Oil sending unit, is the light on or pressure gauge work?

Oil and transmission fluid mixing and leaking from under car 99 Buick century and now car will not change gears


you need to look at the tranny cooler located in radiator that's the only way tranny fluid can get out but how its crossing over to motor oil im not sure unless you also have a motor oil cooler in the radiator.and that will cause tranny problems ,don't try to drive till you resolve these issues., my other thought is oil is leaking out back of motor and mixing with leaking tranny fluid, try draining tranny first to see if motor oil is really in tranny.

Does the 99 explorer have a vacuum modulator on the tranny and where would I find the vac hoses off the tranny.


There is no vacuum modulator on your vehicle ! It's controlled by the PCM ,all electronic shift control solenoids ! What DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes do you have ? P0171 bank 1 lean code ? doesn't mean vac system leak ! could be a vacuum leak but also could be a O2 sensor problem or an intake manifold leak, brake vacuum booster diaphragm leak . What do you mean a slight code of gear three incorrect ratio ? P0733 ? P0733 Gear 3 Incorrect ratio Sorry Jon but you really should take this to a professional !

My 88 dodge dakota has a leak between the engine and the transmission. What could the problem be and how can I fix it?


If it is motor oil, it should match the oil on the dipstick.
If it is automatic transmission fluid, it should be sort of redish and match your "tranny" fluid on that dipstick.
If it is thicker than motor oil, it should be manual transmission oil.
Motor oil leaks from the "rear main seal".
Transmission fluid or gear oil leak from the front transmission seal.
All 3 of these can look like they are coming from about the same place, where you have said.
All three of these require you separate the motor and transmission to fix them, and that means taking the transmission out of your truck.
Pretty expensive if you pay to have it done.
If you take the " tranny" out, most shops will replace both seals (one front, engine and one rear, tranny)
Depending on how much it is leaking and other things, lots of people let it leak.
If you are using a lot of fluid, perhaps it\'s time to think about repairs.
Be blessed

2000 satrn sl1 someone told me on my 5 speed the gear oil was leaking out on right side of trany the seal was bad, now they tell me something on top is what is really leaking gear oil, what can it be or do...


first, make sure the car is actually leaking oil.
park the car on a clean part of driveway overnight and see if there are any new oil spots in the morning.

the only way to tell exactly where a leak is coming from is to steam clean the underneath of the car and look to see exactly where the oil is coming from.

you do this to find where the leak is, then you try to work out the best way to fix it.

Leaks gearoil bad cv joints whats the problem transmission 0r other


Is it a standard tranny or auto? The CV joints usually make an awful racket before they go, the bearings and seals go out, and it will leak oil, But I don't think it would be gear oil in an automatic, I might be wrong, been a while since I messed with CV joints, don't have any cars with front drive anymore. The auto tranny fluid is red, and thin, gear oil is black and thick, like maple syrup. In case you didn't know, The CV joints are an easy fix for most shops, they used to do it for about $150, I have no idea what they charge now. Check it out. Hope this helps.

Transmission is leaking -- what are possible solutions? Leak is getting worse each week -- no slippage of gears. This is automatic w/overdrive.


clean the tranny bottom to determine whether fluid is coming from the gasket...if so you probably need you change the fluid and filter any way, you can replace that gasket then....make sure that it is tranny fluid, and not engine oil from an oil seal at the front of the tranny....if the leak is in the rear of the tranny replace the rear seal....good luck, hope this helps

Transmission slipping......


If its the main seal gone,you will have to remove the tranny regardless because the main seal is the torq converter seal.Even though it leaks,if its slipping when full of oil chances are your tranny is no good,if it shifts fine its not to late,just keep it full of oil and have the leak fixed.Look under the front of the car when its in park,with the e.brake on and running,look for the leak.If the leak is between the the motor and the tranny its probably the main seal.Check the transmission pan,axle seals and coolant lines for leaks also.Changing the transmission is no small job and should be done by a garage if your not sure how to do it.Hope this helps.
