    You better fix this tomorrow or kiss your ride goodby. A new trans will
    cost you more than the car is worth. you have a dip stick for the
    transmission. ?? or do you.? NothingYshows on the dip
    stick- put 3 pints in it to start. You better hope you didn't
    burn it up already.

    Get off that problem. Do you know where it is leaking? A rear seal leak
    is eay to repair. A front seal is not. Where is the fluid in your
    parking spot ? At the back or front of the transmission.

Is it a 3 speed or a 4 speed. Can you tell where the leak is coming from. You need to add until it reads full on the dipstick when it warm and running.

2005 chevy impala.. transmission slipping or something. this car has about 193,000 miles on it.. im wondering why its slipping (transmission) and if its even worth fixing...???

First, verify the transmission fluid level is correct - look in the Owner's Manual for info. 2nd get a transmission fluid replacement - do NOT do a 'chemical flush' it could make it even worse....just have them drain out ALL the old fluid and put in new fluid. Shouldn't cost more than $100. If you have any Check Engine Lights or other unusual lights on, get those checked out, too.

Per car is worth about $2500 if you sell it yourself; dealer might give your $1500 but only $500 w/a bad transmission. A rebuilt transmission would likely cost $ NOT fix it. 193K miles is a lot on any car especially an Impala. Time a for another car.

Fluid leaking out the side if transmission.

If you are talking about the transmission.. it is the modulator valve. There should be no leaks. Remove it, take with you to the parts house and get the 'o' ring needed and gasket to repair it. If it were me, I'd just replace the whole valve. Not very costly and will make it shift lots better.

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.

My transmission fluid fluid is leaking and i took to a mechanic to fix it and he is saying it will cost 200.00 ui feel im getting ripped off can u please help before i do this and im also on disabil;ity...

didnt advise what or where leak is but if it is leaking at the seal where the engine and trans meet than thats not to bad for seal a replacement because he would have to separate the two to do repair and that takes time and time is money average $65 per hour labor at most places if it seems excessive get a second opinion or check around ur area and look for a college-or an auto motive school they usually look for jobs and usually charge a small fee for the lift usually around $20 -50 tops and u can buy or they can order parts needed for repair

1999 chevy lumina doesn't shift into overdrive, why?

If it won't go into overdrive a speed sensor within the transmission may not be sending the shift signal to the transmission. Check fluid levels to make sure that's not causing the problem. Also, check that the fluid is red color and clean.

Transmission probably needs to be serviced at a reputable shop if you want this problem fixed.

Im leaking transmission fluid from what appears to

Make sure you don not run low on transmission fluid in your transmission. Low transmission fluid will cost you a new transmission. You have the transmission line that connects to the upper passenger side or the radiator and the lower passenger side of the radiator. Determine which line has gone bad and you can buy a rubber transmission line hose at most Auto Parts store like Parts Source. Cut off out the section with a pipe cutter that has corroded through and replace with the transmission hose. Make sure you tell them it's a transmission line hose your looking for and don't use any other hose and double clamp with a compression clamps at ether end. If it's the connection at the radiator that has gone bad, replace that end and do that same as you would to sectioning off the the corroded line and try not to have more then 3 inches of repaired section. What ever you do, do not add any stop leak, this will create problems with the shift solenoids and check valves in your valve body in the transmission causing a transmission replacement soon after adding. Good luck and keep me posted.

I have a 1993 Mazda Protege. My clutch suddenly

check the line from the reservoir to the transmission for leaks, unfortunately its most likely the slave cylinder in the bell housing. Look under the bell housing of the transmission for any brake fluid at the weep hole as that would be your indicator of the slave cylinder leaking.

Car shifting funny

Well first off is the transmission shifting properly because when the transmission is overfilled it will blow the excess out and that is normal. If it is in fact a leak the lines are on the bottom of the car usually above the pan on the drivers side of the transmission. I hope that helps you out.
