SOURCE: TRANSMISSION OIL LEAK

usually not to expensive and yes it is difficult if you just bought the car and never worked on it , i always go to a mechanics the first time. just check the fluid often dont run it low, until you get it fixed. its just a matter of removing the bolts that hold the plate on and then changing/flushing the trans fluid, filter. if you never done it i wouldnt attempt it alone .

SOURCE: what causes the transmission to leak oil?

generally broken seals.
I am not sure where the leak is coming from in your post.
it may be simply coming from the pan. If this is the case go to your parts store ask for a pan gasket and a new filtre ( always a good idea to replace) then remove screws from the pan be careful as it will be full of fluid. I try to loosen screws and lower one side of pan to allow it to drain into a pan or some type of container. most vehicles have a drain screw remove this first it should be in the centre of the pan. the pan looks like a cake pan inverted.

If it is actually leaking from the hub of the tranny itself.... I hate to say but your best option may be to go to a tranny shop and ask for an expert opinion on it. as you may have internal issues with your tranny and fixing it sooner is better than waiting and looking at a double cost.

Hope this helped.

SOURCE: is the rear main seal on a 1999 gmc yukon a 1

its a one piece. should be the metal one with the rubber inside seal. of corse you gatta pull the tranny but its a good time to change fluids and maybe slap a new torque converter in. changing the rear main is pretty easy after the tranny is out.

SOURCE: Rear Main Oil Seal leak 2008 GMC Canyon

I think this is for an oil level sensor. Should be easy to change , or a shop can do it for a nominal charge. The dealerships will want more.

How do I replace my radiator in a 1996 Buick Regal 3.8 3800series


This is actually not too difficult.
I recommend replacing the upper, and lower radiator hoses while you are replacing the radiator if they are getting old.
1. Disconnect the battery.
2. Remove radiator fan (Some had two 10mm bolts at the top, and slots at the bottom, others had two more 10mm bolts on the bottom.) - And unplug the electrical connector.
3. Disconnect transmission lines (you will loose a bit of fluid)
You may also have two engine oil cooler lines that need removing (Also may loose some oil)
4. Remove upper and lower radiator hoses, and the overflow jug hose.
5. Unbolt radiator (should have two 8 or 10mm bolts connecting it to the radiator support near the top of the radiator)
6. Pull radiator up and out.
7. Reverse for reassembly
8. Refill radiator, I usually leave the top radiator hose loose while filling to remove air bubbles in the engine. - reconnect upper hose when fluid starts to get close to the radiator inlet. Some of these engines have a small brass air bleeder near the thermostat housing to accomplish this in a different way. Also fill the overflow jug about half way.
9. Check transmission, and engine oil. - Run engine, and watch for any leaks. - Recheck antifreeze just to be sure. Obviously don't open the radiator cap when the engine is hot.

Oil leakage by the transmission &engine


Need to inspect closer and make sure the exact place the oil is coming from....Most common places that leak are around valve pan cover which is located on top of motor and in alot of cases can run down back of motor onto transmission or bottom or motor. Another place is the oil pan which is located on bottom of motor. If leaking from either of these you would need to replace the gaskets. Two other places that are common for leaks is the front and rear seals in the motor. Try cleaning bottom half of motor off with a degreaser in the area where you see yhe oil dripping and then you should be able to see exactly where it is coming from. If the leak is underneath where the transmission is bolted to the motor this would indicate that the rear seal is bad. To replace it you will have to take transmission out to do this and if this is the case and your truck has a automatic transmission have that seal replaced also. Yhe reason for this is if you have to take transmission out then you may as well change transmission seal also but remember only if the transmission is a automatic.....hope this helps and good luck....Please rate this post...

Weres the oil pan on ford explorer


The oil pan is where the oil collects on the bottom of the engine before the pump picks it up and circulates it back up through the engine. So it will be the bottom most thing, bolted directly to the bottom of the engine block. Generally found about centered between the front wheels. Hint, looks like a pan with many little bolt heads around its outer perimeter. Rarely obstructions from the road puncture it, and often times with age its gasket leaks.

1995 jeep yj 5 speed AX-5


Where are you seeing the oil leaking from? Remember that gravity will cause the oil to drop down. The wind will also cause the oil to blow back while you drive. Look for the forward most and top most areas that are covered with oil. Common leak areas are the front oil seal (oil will look like it's coming from the bell-housing. Another common leak is the shifter plate gasket, just below the shift lever. Oil will be found draining from this area. I have also seen shoddy mechanics use the wrong bolts to hold the rear housing onto the main housing of the transmission. If the bolts used are to short, oil will leak between the main housing and the tail-shaft housing. Charlie

90 percent of the time stop leak does not work. Usually the seal between the transmission and transfercase goes out and forces all the fluid into the transfercase and leaks out the rear seal. Or the tranfercase or transmission breather could be plugged.
