Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
My transmission fluid is leaking..how do i fix it myself? how do i find out exactly where the leak is?
Get underneath and dry off as much as possible all of the fluid you see. If it is a bad leak, it will drip when the vehicle is off. Place a piece of cardboard down under the vehicle and you will be able to find the area where it is leaking. If it is not too bad, you can pick up and additive from an auto parts store and add it to your tranny fluid. This normally helps to "condition" the seal that is in question...more or less helps the seal to swell for a period of time. Try this first and see where it is coming from. Then, come back and post where you found the leak coming from. Usually it is the tailshaft seal located where the drive shaft connects to the yoke which in turn is "butted" up to the tailshaft housing of the transmission....or the transfer case.
Post back what you find and we'll tell you how to fix what is wrong.
