You need to get a dye for the tranny that may help find your leak but i would look at the main seal

Check the transmission line going to and from the radiator, the line may be leaking from the radiator or the transmission. The line it self could be leaking too, good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted be glad to know if you found your leak.

Try to clean first the oil on the transmission clean it with a gasoline so that all the grease will be remove then after that monitor where the leak is coming from but normally it is just the oil seal visit your nearest mechanic.

Transmission fluid leak but the underneath is dry .Fluid coming out of the hood


The only thing that would cause it to be on the hood is it being flung by something. So it is getting on belts or pulleys. The biggest thing to check is the dipstick and the tube that it sits in. Also be advised that ATF on the exhaust manifold or cat can cause the engine to catch fire.

Transmission problems


Well, the car is 20 years running on the road, one can expect gaskets and seals to start leaking. If you stop the leak and keep it full, you may be alright. But running low fluid for very long will definitely damage the transmission, so do get it fixed, and keep it full but not overfull till fixed. There aren't that many places for an automatic to leak. There are axle seals where the two front axles go into the transaxle. Fairly easy to replace. There is a gasket where the bottom fluid pan bolts to transaxle. Also fairly easy to replace. There are two fluid cooling lines from transaxle to radiator or to a small radiator-like cooler in front of radiator. Leaks can develop in the lines, at the fittings where they connect to transaxle or to the radiator. Leaks anywhere there should be fairly easy to fix. There is another seal, a front transaxle seal, and if bad, fluid will be dripping off the bottom front of the tranny where it mates to the engine. If this seal is bad, the transmission will have to be removed from vehicle to replace it. A $5 seal, but the fix requires pulling the transaxle-ouch! That is about all the places where leaks can develop-except there may be some bolted on or screwed in fittings (like the reverse light switch, for one). These fittings would have seals, O-ring seals, or gaskets that may start leaking.
If it gets low on fluid that fast, it would seem that you should be able to spot where it is leaking. Use rags and wipe off all the old fluid and dirt from the transaxle. After a drive and then parked, you may be able to see where the leak has allowed new fluid to escape. Good luck.

Tranny leaking fuild


No way to tell over the net. There are 10+ places where tranny fluid could leak from. You need to powerwash the car and then run it for 20min and get a more specific place where the fluid is coming from. And maybe we can help you better. Possible gasket, hole in trans pan, could be a line or at the radiator or hole in the trans or even a seal at the axles!!

Transmission leak


It will show high if you do not have the engine running when you test the level of the trans fluid. The seal is worn and it will probably not stop leaking on its own.
