    there is an oil pan on the bottom of your transmission and it sounds like it took a hit. Replacing the pan immediately would be advisable.....running low on fluid endangers your transmission. I just spent $1000 rebuilding my tranny so I can tell you that putting a new or salvaged pan and gasket on is far cheaper. Hope this is helpful.

    Totally agree with Dave, Sebrina. Had my tranny rebuilt @ nearly 290,000 miles because it started slipping. Did not waste any time. Yours sounds like an easy fix but don't run it anywhere but to a reliable transmission service dept. Love my van which now has 324,500+ and needs a good tune-up. :O) Good luck!

Yes there is a pan. If you hit it then it will probably need to be replaced. There are also transmission lines and a cooler that may be leaking as well. Best bet is to get some ramps from Walmart and drive your car up and get under to check if you are planning on doing the work yourself.

99 Grand Marquis. Wont move in drive but all the other gears work fine. Noticed a large oil spot in my drive way so i added 4 quarts of fluid and still nothing. What could the problem be ?

You don't mention mileage, but a 99 model, plus no forward gear plus evidence of a large leak = don't add fluid until you have located leak.

Sorry to inform you of this, but chances are if you have a large trans fluid leak AND no forward gear, your transmission is DOA. You probably unwittingly drove it without enough fluid for many miles and it overheated fatally. A large leak is a VERY uncommon occurrence unless there has been fluid pan damage, like from hitting a rock or something else on the road, or a fluid cooler line has broken or come loose.

Hi I just purchase a 2001 Chrysler minivan The car turns on but wont drive and is leaking oil transmission Help me wats the problem?

Without transmission fluid the car wont move, it mostly leaks at pan gasket,the transmission cooler line or front transmission seal. I have to say you may be safe to add 1 quart ATF 4 transmission fluid, being in front of the vehicle looking in the engine the dipstck is where you add transmission fluid it on the right hand side yellow handle. pull the dipstick out get a funnel that can help you add transmission fluid if the leak is not that bad this can help you get to shop that can fix the leak and put you on the road

Tranny fluids are leaking on my monte carlo

Hi, that is a bad deal. The best way to find where it is leaking from is to get under the car and wipe off all the oil and muck under there on your oil pan and transmission pan, crossmembers and most anywhere you see leakage buildup. Then get a couple old cardboard boxes and cut them flat. Then lay them under the entire (from bumper to the back of drivers door across entire width of vehicle) car while it is parked for the night. Start car and let idle about 10 mins. shifting in to reverse and creeping back a foot and then into drive creeping back up a foot a few times. Let the car sit overnight. Next day observe the leak spots left on the cardboard and then go under the car and try to locate the origin of the leak. The transmission is most likely leaking from the pan, but there are transmission lines that go to and from your radiator. That is so fluid can circulate through a channel in your radiator to cool the fluid. Those can spring a leak also. If your pan leaks, you can change the gasket and filter in the transmission (fluid also at that time, as you will lose about 1/2 to 2/3rds
of it when dropping the tranny pan. If your lines are leaking, they should be replaced complete rather than attempting to repair them. (Occasionally they will have a band clamp on the rubber portion near the radiator that can be loose). If you see it dripping from the rear of the transmission, the seal around the output shaft is bad. It can be replaced at home if you have patience. If it is leaking from between the engine and transmission, the front input shaft seal is bad. You have to pull the tranny out to replace it. Quite a job.
Good luck with solving your leaks!

My 1984 chev s10 blazer 4x4 2.8ltr is going thru up to 2-3 quarts of transmission fluid a day. I'm a single mom with little resources please tell me where to look for possible leaks

First, take a look underneath with the engine running (be careful as the exhaust pipe is very hot, and, don't reach up where the fan is). A leak that severe is usually a cooling line (there are two that go from the trans up to the radiator) or from the converter seal (inside the bellhousing where the trans meets the back of the engine) The first isn't too expensive to repair, the second means trans removal and costs a lot.
Also check the transmission itself as the pan gasket or the side linkage seal can also leak.
Once you find the leak, you can decide what to do about it. A leak that large should not be hard to locate. If you see a lot of smoke at the tailpipe, the other way you can loose that much fluid is if the vacuum control on the side of the transmission is bad. then, you won't see anything on the ground but will be burning it in the engine. Only other place you can loose fluid is into the radiator in which case you will need to replace the radiator.
In any case, you will destroy your transmission if you continue to drive it leaking that badly.
I'm hoping that the leak will be in one of the lines.
Good luck!!

Transmission fluid leaking after getting warm from front of transmission pan even after replacing gasket, and need torque specs for transmission pan

pan bolt torque is in inch pounds (not a lot, around 10-15) generally it's not necessary for exact because pans are a bit warped many times and exact dosen't work anyhow. Tighten snugly without leaning into the wrench, then check running and tighten anywhere that is seeping.
if it's dry after a week of running it's fine.It's important not to crush the gasket. If you have one with a two piece dipstick tube sometimes if the vent is a bit blocked the fluid can get out at the connection between the two halves. I don't know if anything is available to join them together better but I use a piece of hose over them to keep water out off-road. Make sure the vent is clear. If it's leaking, the only way to find the leak is to look carefully at everything, clean off areas where there is too much gunk to see well. pretty much the only place at the front that there is a seal is in the pump and around the pump. it would leak down inside the bellhousing and drip out onto the front of the pan rail after being blown back while driving. Both seals are not accessible unless the unit is removed.

All of the tranamission fluid is coming out.

OK, i recommend taking a first hand look. slid under or raise the F150 and inspect the transmission pan. if its coming out form the sides of the pan, you will need to replace the pan gasket. Also, check the transmission filter for a tight fit. make sure the trans filter is not lose. this could be a leak spot if it's lose as well.

Please rate and god bless:)
