SOURCE: Transmission oil leak

Be to let the things cool down before you get started. The cat converter stays hot for a long time and can give you a good burn otherwise.

The dealership has the AA Plug Adapter Part # 68021352 (for my 2006 Chrysler 300 Touring) for around $15.

Place an oil pan underneath because when you swap the housings, a decent amount of fluid will come out.

Turn the Yellow plastic dial counter-clockwise to remove the wire plug. Do not mess with this plug, especially the orange o-ring on this plug.

What you will be replacing is the plug housing that is still in the transmission.

Use a 7mm socket to remove the small bolt in the center of this plug. Make sure the screw is completely free so as not to do any damage to the valve body when you remove the black housing.

Go ahead and remove the housing and allow the fluid to drain. Up to a quart of fluid will come out.
Replace the housing with the now one, lining up the marks. Put your fingers inside the housing and use a little muscle to get it in, then tighten down the bolt.

Reattached the wire harness, add a quart of fluid, and you should be back in business. If you have lost a lot of fluid, be sure to take it by the dealership immediately to check the level.

Good luck!

SOURCE: i have transmission fluid leaking

Hmmmm, The tube running to the firewall may just be an elevated vent for the trans, but it should noyt vent into the passenger compartment. Are you sure it isn't brake fluid? Brake fluid is used for the clutch as well as brakes. if either brake or clutch cylinders leak it would or could be possible the fluid will enter through the firewall and run down the nearest thing.. Ck that out, you can tell by smell which it is. brake fluid will wash off with water, gear oil will not. good luck

SOURCE: Power steering fluid leaking.

Year and mileage? Keep the fluid level up so you don't damage the power steering pump, and return to the garage that serviced it. This sounds like something wasn't tightened properly, and they should correct the problem. It is possible that a power steering hose or the pump itself developed a leak, but, it is most likely something that wasn't tightened properly. That's the best diagnosis that can be given w/out actually being able to see the vehicle.

2007 Sierra, Loss of Brake fluid with no visible leaks.


if you have a hydraulic clutch ( no transmission offered) check the slave cylinder for leaks ( some cars use the brake master cylinder as a reservoir for the hydraulic clutch)
check the brake booster to master cylinder mounting for leaks or the rear seal of the master cylinder may be faulty allowing fluid to pass to the booster chamber
check for a leak under pressure at the rear flexible rubber hose from the body on

1991 Chevy Lumina APV. The transmission fluid is leaking. Can this be a gasket or seal problem? Also, can it be I put too much fluid in?


Leaking transmission fluid can usually be traced to 1 or 2 problems:
  1. leaking transmission line - a line could be bent or it could be leaking around a fitting, the most common place for a transmission line to leak
  2. the gasket around the transmission pan is worn - this would cause leaking and having the filter and fluid changed should fix this problem
To answer your other question, YES it is possible to overfill the transmission fluid. Check the dipstick (with the car running) and ensure that the level stays between the recommended marks.

Leaking transmission fluid


TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAKS,CAN BE FOUND AROUND PAN GASKET.CHECK PAN GASKET,IF IT LOOKS WET AND YOU SEE FLUID DRIPPING AROUND THE EDGE OF OIL PAN, REPLACE PAN GASKET, WHILE YOU REPLACING PAN GASKET REPLACE TRANSMISSION FILTER WHILE OIL PAN OFF.IF TRANSMISSION OIL PAN NOT LEAKING, CHECK TRANSMISSION OIL COOLER LINES GOING INTO RADIATOR YOU WILL LOOSE A LOT OF FLUID THERE ALSO TORQUE SHAFT SEAL WILL CAUSE HEAVY FLUID LEAK WHILE ENGINE RUNNING CHECK OIL COOLER LINES AND LOOK AT THE TORQUE AREA WHILE ENGINE RUNNING YOU WILL SEE FLUID POURING WHILE ENGINE RUNNING THE OIL PUMP PRESSURE WILL PUSH FLUID OUT AT THE LEAKING AREAS.

I have a 2000 beetle turbo and just notices it is leaking oil from around the plug which is tight and seeping transmission fluid. Is this going to be a costly fix?


OIL LEAK AROUND THE SPARKS PLUGS COULD BE LEAKING VALVE COVER GASKETS ALLOWING OIL TO SEEP BY GASKET FLOW DOWN AROUND SPARK PLUGS.TRANSMISSION LEAK IS NOT VERY EXPENSIVE LONG AS TORQUE CONVERTER SHAFT SEAL NOT LEAKING WHICH TRANSMISSION HAS TO DROPPED OUT TO REPLACE SHAFT SEAL.IF TRANSMISSION LEAK AROUND FRONT AXLE SEAL IT MAY COST A LITTLE.BUT PAN GASKET LEAK OR OIL COOLER LINES WONT COST TOO MUCH NOT HARD TO GET TO REPAIR.PHONE AROUND GET PRICE CHECKS.

My son has been doing something called doughnuts?in his car .so has split the main feeder pipe .i have changed that .but now there is fluid dripping from somewhere behind the engine could this be something...


dougnuts are never a good thing. the front seal on transmission could be leaking,if so the fluid will be red.it will drip down between the engine and transmission. if so, the transmission will need to come out fo r a replacement of front transmission seal. if it's clear fluid,it may be a bad steering rack. if it's black oil, it could be a bad rear main engine seal. if bad rear main seal,that transmission will need to come out for replacement of rear main engine seal.a abd rear main engine seal will also leak down between the engine and transmission and be black oil. check for color of the fluid leaking to give you a starting point to diagnose what to look for. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Why my 2006 chyrsler leaks tranmission fluid


There are two possibilities
Either a bad gasket or the fluid internal pressure is too high due to bubbles getting in formed. if its gasket problem then the gasket needs to be checked.but if its high fluid pressure then bleeding the old fluid and refilling the new fluid properly will solve the problem. Also check How bad it is leaking? You certainly don't want to run a car with low transmission fluid as it will surely do internal damage. Most common leak areas are at the pan gasket or the transmission cooler lines that go to the radiator. Next most common areas are at the output shaft seals and around sensors or plugs on the transmission. If you replace any cooler lines with hose, make sure you use transmission hose. This will handle the pressure and the chemical resistance that other hoses will not stand up to. Also be sure to KNOW what transmisson fluid is needed. One size does not fit all! This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
