I have a1998 Ford Taurus that has a transmission that is pouring fluid out of the bell housing. When it gets to running temperature, it pours fluid out even after the car is shut off. Can I ask you what you think is wrong with my car?

Looks like it may have too much fluid inside. But, it also has to have a loose fill bolt, if manual transmission, or dip stick if automatic, or the drain bolt is loose.

Have someone check to see which problem it is, and check the proper oil level and tighten the plugs.

There are no guarantees when it comes to a rebuilt transmission or anything. They usually have a warranty for the work all depending on the mileage afterwards. Is it over it? Most likely the gaskets need replacing and the bolts tightened again.

SOURCE: can't find the spout to pour transmission fluid into Ford Taurus

You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.

Turn the car off. There is no reason to have it on when filling with the fluid. Be careful not to overfill.

Transmission stalls after it gets hot


This usually happens when the transmission fluid gets hot.

Transmission fluid gets hot when there's not much of it.

Check your transmission fluid levels.

If it's low, you can fill it by pouring fluid down the testing hose. Just make sure to get a funnel.

If the clutch slave cylinder on my 2005 Saturn Vue is internal to the transmission, how would the fluid have poured out onto my garage floor? I think the transmission dude might be pulling my leg to the...


No its internal meaning that its in the bell housing.The bell housing is bolted to the gearbox to hous the clutch befor being bolted to the engine.It has no seal on it.So when your slave cylinder leaks,The fluid drips from the bell housing.And the only way to get at it is to remove the gearbox.
