    It is a dark pink, transmission fluid as it isn't oil or brake fluid.

    Did you recently go off road with it and possibly hit something like a very large rock?

  • Curt Downs May 11, 2010

    From what you describe, it sounds like a serious transmission problem. Check the fluid level, it must be quite low now, and check to see where it's coming from after adding fluid and starting it up. How was it running and shifting before this?

    What kind of fluid is it leaking?

  • Curt Downs May 11, 2010

    What was the fluid leaking? Oil, trans fluid, coolant? If you aren't sure, what color was the fluid?

Check all fluid levels, especially oil and transmission. You are probably bone dry. After topping off fluids, check to see what and where it is leaking from.

If you're adding fluid, you have a leak. Did you notice underneath the car if there's a puddle each morning? It could also leak out while driving w/out showing a puddle, but there is likely evidence of a leak. You'll need a mechanic to determine the source of the leak in order to get it fixed.

Jeep is leaking fluid from underneath, and oil pressure fluctuating, transmission sounds loose or something. hear a clank when automatic shifts gears. what could be going on?

You may have a few separate issues. You need to determine the source of the fluid loss and exactly what kind of fluid it is that is leaking. From what you said, it may be the oil pressure sending unit, or that and something else. The clank shifting could be a bad universal joint on the driveshaft. Check those with the suspension unloaded or have someone watch from the side underneath to see if there is excessive movement in each joint as you move from reverse to drive.
Difficult to diagnose your problem on-line as seeing the problem is the key to fixing it. If you can't find it, have a professional do that for still have the option of doing the work yourself!

It will leak more if you fill it up and operate the clutch. Have someone watch underneath to find the leak. Car does not need to be running to do this. If you don't see anything on the ground, check where the rod passes through the firewall under the dash. Fluid may be coming out of the back of the master cyl.

No pressure when i press break, slight leak under left rear tire,

1st need to know where the leak is? Is it a rusted line, or? To bleed after repairing leak, do the following: Have a helper start the Jeep, go to the wheel the greatest distance from the master cylinder, have helper pump brake pedal 3 times, pushing down about 1/2 way on pedal each time. 3rd time, he should hold pedal at 1/2 way down point while you open bleeder to let air/fluid out. As flow is about to stop, close bleeder. Repeat til all air removed. Check master cyl and refill often, because if you draw in air, you have to start all over. Go to the next wheel that's now the greatest distance from master cyl, repeat, til you get to wheel closest to master cyl. Done!!

89 jeep cherokee powersteering leak

Put a clean piece of cardboard, thin plywood, or whatever, under front tires, large enough to cover area under vehicle from front bumper to just behind front wheels. Start it with power steering full & crank wheels back & forth a few times. Monitor for drops of fluid on surface, to isolate problem area. may need to sit all night. Or take it in to shop, have them put on hoist & diagnose.

99 jeep grand cherokee turns off while iam driving

Jack up your Cherokee and look underneath for a wiring harness that leads to a sensor that is between the engine and trans. This is your crank sensor. Pull it out and check the condition. Mainly look at the wiring harness to the sensor. These Jeeps have a habit of breaking and your Jeep with just turn off going down the road. These wiring harnesses are available at the dealer and are fairly inexpensive.

Front seat bracket underneath

You can buy the brackets or seat frame seperatly.
The thing is that you have to take the seat out and disassemble the whole thing to replace the bracket.
