check the fluid condition/ex. full level/rose pink/red color is good if it's brown it's burning this could be from slipping/ improper cooling from hot running engine(the tranny lines go through the radiator)broken vacuum line/pressure loss dirty electrical connectors/blown switches inside the tranny/or the tranny is completely shot==this all depends on what you find if your engine has been running rough for a while your loosing vacuum inches and proper voltage and this will contribute to ruining a transmission in a short time also high heat /hot running engine == old transmission===I'm fried out === junk yard transmission=$$and a lot of work / rebuilt transmission===$$$$$ and other repairs as needed to not burn the new one out in 6 months or less good luck
transmission line is loose @ connection, or has a hole(leak) in the line, even a crack in housing. trans is a large pump, high pressure, if you have a leak, just start your car and look under it, you'll know real quik.
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 transmission fluid is needed. One size does not fit all!
The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.
I just checked for technical service bulletins and there is nothing for leaks from tranny or lines. Your vehicle is 15 years old if they havent been replaced yet it is possible it it just time to change them. Check where it goes from metal to rubber on the lines that is most likely where it will be wet. If itis wet there more than likely you'll need new lines
starter replacement itself would not effect transmission,check that transmission cooler lines to radiator were not loosend or damaged changing starter.place a piece of cardboard under vehicle to help pinpoint leak.
The fitting is replaceable if you have a flaring kit, because you have to cut the line to replace it. Before you do make sure it is leaking between the line and the fitting. Remove the line from the transmission, dry it off, and wrap the fitting with a layer of thread tape.Reinstall the line being careful not to crossthread the fitting. Push the line all the way into its place and start the fitting by hand.Watch your repair for a while to see exactly where it is leaking, if it still leaks. It would probably be easier to change the line than the fitting.Steel brake line does the trick and usually has the right fittings. If they have to be changed it is a lot easier on a bench than on your back under a car.
