SOURCE: Im leaking transmission fluid is this going to be costly

Is it a 3 speed or a 4 speed. Can you tell where the leak is coming from. You need to add until it reads full on the dipstick when it warm and running.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid,power steering fluid leak cause burnt smell?

The smell you are probably smelling is the fluids that are leaking hitting something hot like the exaust. Unless the leaks are so severe that it takes constant refilling then you should be ok. But be aware that when yu have leaking parts that you must regularly check those fluid levels. Them leaking wont cause major damage, but you not keeping the fluid levels up will. I had a tranny leask in my van for a 1 1/2 and thought it was a expensive fix, but I ended up fixing my leak for about 6 bucks. My point is, check your fluids once a day if not more depending on the severity of the leak.

I have a 1999 GMC Suburban 1500 that started having front end popping/clicking yesterday. Tonight went to back into my parking spot, pulled forward to adjust and it did not move? I can only pull it forward...

Not CV. Red means transmission fluid. On front frame probably means you have a transmission cooler which is a smaller separate radiator that keeps the transmission fluid cool. That's probably where the leak is or the line leading to it. Check your transmission fluid (it has a dipstick) and make sure it shows at the proper level on that dipstick. Add transmission fluid by pouring into same tube dipstick is in. Drive to nearest shop and repair leak.

Have a 93 suburu loyale cannot figure out where to add transmission fluid

Remove the spare tire under the hood.
Your dipstick for the transmission (if its a stick) will be under the tire.

What would be a cause of leaking transmission fluid?

The most common cause is the front seal of the input shaft is leaking, this is commonly called the front pump seal, next would be the transmission pan gasket is leaking. The only real way to determine exactly what is leaking is to thoroughly clean all the fluid off with a pressure washer, then drive it and check for the source of the fluid.

My 5 speed 1999 Saturn SL2 is leaking transaxle fluid. What can cause this to happen?

You probably blew the differential pin and it punched a hole in the transmission. Get underneath and look for a fist sized hole in your transmission. If it is there time to replace the transmission. Can be done in a day with basic tools.

Transmission leaking

R/S axle seal probably damaged . Most likely enough fluid was lost to cause slippage. Try filling and get repaired. Tow if necessary. Hope this help
