If your trans is leaking between the motor and trans it can only be two things the front seal witch is behind the converter or the gasket on the trans pump and that is highly unlikely probly the front seal

SOURCE: radiator fluid leak

Do this test, bypass your heater core by removing both hoses and connect them together with a small threaded pipe coupling and then worm gear clamp them on to the coupling. Be sure to mark one of then with a tye wrap so you will know if its top/bottom/left or right. Then run it a few days and routinely check for leaks if there are'nt any more leaks then you either had a small hair line tear or crevice corrosion at one of the hoses at the fire wall or there is a small leak just inside the fire wall on the heater core. When reinstalling the hoses cut a 1/4 of a inch off of them and then reinstall and recheck for the leak. If you still see it then its internal then there is the real pain of changing the heater core. Good Luck :?) DRRXR

SOURCE: 1998 s10 oil leak

well it wont be the oil pan seal then cause they never leaked that much. I would go back and look at the filter he put on. could be just a problem with it. for the cost of one put another one on and make sure the gasket surfacce is clean down to the metal engine block.

SOURCE: 1992 chevy siverado pickup 350 engine,I have a oil

you definately should check the oil pressure switch its probobly above or to the side of the oil filter and can make it look as if the filter is leaking,it will be threaded into the engnine itself and will have a connector on the top of it most likely with only 2 wires going to it

SOURCE: leaking clutch 85 s10 blazer

First, unless you have just done some clutch work you should not need to be bleeding the clutch hydraulic system...that shows that it's leaking. There is nothing inside the bellhousing that has anything to do with clutch fluid, so, the fluid you see is either engine or transmission oil (rear main seal or seal on trans input shaft) Could it be that the clutch slave is leaking and it's running down and dripping at the bottom of the housing? (clean it up and check that)

Engine shakes when idling

check the engine lines for air leak, also the manifold on the in let spray some carb cleaner around these areas if the engine sound changes there is your problem. new clutch would not make a difference really only difference it would make is if there is a problem with the transmission. you would need to hold the clutch in when engine is worm and in neutral ans see what the revs do they should drop a small amount but not to much. if it stalls engine it could be the transmission oil needs replacing or you have a leak and you have lost some oil and that is why its hard to use when engine is hot.

Camry csi 2000 oil leak between engine and transmission

Lots of Camrys do this.

The oil will typically leak from the rear main bearing seal between engine and transmission, but that will appear at the bottom of the joint line, and will not reach the exhaust. This leak is expensive to fix and is usually left as is.

A leak from the cam cover gasket can drip into the exhaust.

The other typical leak is from the distributor shaft o-ring seal. This appears at the top of the join line between engine and trans, and can blow back onto the exhaust.

1988 honda acura legend keeps leaking oil dont know where from

You need to have someone you trust to look under your car for leaks. For that amount of oil loss the leak should show a trail of oil.

There is a rear main seal and it is where the transmission and engine join. Often the oil pan is in the vicinity of this part. Perhaps the repair was misdiagnosed and you actually had a bad rear seal leak instead. Depending on how this style seal is removed, it may require separating the engine from the transmission. Or the repair did not last and you should go back to have it corrected.

If there is no leak under your car, then the oil is going somewhere. The valve seals are the next most probable place.

I hope my solution is helpful, please rate my info.

Oil leak out of tranfer case now transmision is out of oil why did this happen on my freind 1998 ford f150

the oil leaked, either through an oil seal or where the case is joined, also indicating a leak on where either a gasket or gasket sealer should be applied.

refill the oil, drive it and check for where the oil is leaking from.

Replace the oil seal or redo the transmission assembly and ensure that proper gasket sealant is used where needed.

There is a oil puddle unnder my 1992 nissan pickup every time i move but the oil level is fine????? and i know it's leaking because i got under it and ran my finger along the oil pan and it was wet with...

you could have leaking valve cover gaskets leaking or a bad oil sending unit (oil pressure gague) .. make sure the oil is not red .. that wiould be a transmission leak .. over thghtning of the oil filter can cause leaks .. a clogged PCV valve can force oil out thru seals .. one way to track down leaks .. is to spray the engine with an engine solvent like Gunk .. then wash that off with a hose after it sits for a few minutes (keep water out of distributer).. that will clean the surfaces pretty good .. then it becomes obvious where leaks are coming from ..
if the oil turns out to be red in color . then look for hoses from the transmission to the radiator (transmission cooler) .. those frequently leak ..

My chevy s10 leak oil when park around a plug that 2 wirer go to on the side of the transmission

That would be the neutral safety switch and it should have an O-ring to seal it. The O-ring may be bad. Have a bucket handy when you take it out. Hope this helps.

Bent A-Arm on a 1991 Chevy S10$???

I would guess $500 - $1500 to do this job depending on how much damage was done when the arm was bent.

"SMALL OIL AND TRANSMISSION LEAK AND THE RADIATOR LEAKS OUT SLOWLY." -- the radiator leak could get bad enough to require repair.

I think $400 obo is an okay price, can't get much lower for a vehicle that will get you to the store and back.
