SOURCE: Water dripping onto the floor on passenger side below the dash broad

Under the passenger side of the vehicle, near where your feet are, should be a drain tube. This get clogged from time to time by road grime and usually insects, so carefully use a small screwdriver to clean it out. If this clogs, the A/C system cannot remove its own condensation and it backs up into the car.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid leakage from stater motor area. 5.7L Vortec

If transmission fluid is dripping off the bellhousing your torque converter seal is leaking or your transmission pump seal is leaking. Chances are the torque converter seal is leaking since the torque converter is spinning on it any time the engine is turning, the pump seal dosen't move it just keeps fluid inside the transmission. Even though it leaks with or without the engine running I'm willing to bet if you got underneath it with the engine running you will see it leaks more with the engine running. Now if either seal is leaking it will require the engine to be removed from the transmission to get to the seal. Sorry but this isn't going to be a cheap quick fix.

SOURCE: when slowing down & stopping 2005 Mazda tribute sputters and dies

Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?

SOURCE: What could cause an oil leak in a 2002 MB C240?

If you had the oil changed lately and the "O" ring stuck where the filter unscrews and someone proceeded to put the new filter on without looking this can cause a problem. Putting too much oil in the crankcase can cause a seal to blow. A leak at the oil pressure switch. A loose or not sealed oil drain plug. You will need to try to locate whether it is coming from the bottom or at the top around the valve pan cover which is the most likely place, and if it that is the case; it still can drip through the night while it sets, which is missleading. If you can't find any noticeable places...that is a good place to the valve pan cover...seal it real well with RTV sealer, let it dry over night and see if the problem goes away.

Toyota Corolla Fielder CVT transmission problems, please help

I don't know about your model.
But did you change the transmission filter & install new gasket?
From the air filter, remove all that to the engine without breaking or move anything inside.
Clean it well with MAP Sensor Cleaner, be very careful not to move the inside flapper.
Take as many photos as you can in case you don't know how to put it back together correctly.

Where can I find the fourth motor mount on a 99 grand caravan?

The fourth mount is attached to the automatic transaxel transmission case . It bolts to the top of the case by 3 bolts.. it is on the top surface of the transmission case adjacent to the area that the passenger side CV axel plugs in the transmission case. If you remove the air filter box and connector tubes you can look down towards the bottom back of the transmission and see it clearly.

it's very special, and if done wrong, dooms the trans-axle
all this is covered, in the FSM
read it in the book and on most cars the CVT has very very
special needs and procedures for changing lube.
some, it must be done a s special temperature. < yes.

it shows all the steps, 1 by 1.

the lube is at GM. dealers.

GM RPM code M75(2WD)/M16(F4WD)
spec, fluid
DEX-CVT and Automatic Transmission Additive
there are 10 service bulletins on this trans-axle
TSBs (read them all)
see the special additive yet>?
Use DEX CVT fluid (P/N 22688912) only. Use of
any fluid other than DEX CVT will
cause internal trans=axle damage.
Add one unit (10 CC syringe) of DEX CVT additive (P/N 22697447) whenever an unrecoverable loss of fluid occurs during an authorized limited on vehicle repair. Minor fluid
loss, such as minor drips that may occur during the fluid checking procedure, does not require the addition of the additive.

Where is the dipstick in 2007

I cannot understand which dipstick you do want to know about. If you want to know about the auto transmission, it is Continuous Variable Transmission CVT. It does not have any dipstick on it. To check the CVT oil level do the following:
- Park the car on a level floor.
- Open the Allen head bolt from under the transmission oil pan with 6 mm Hex Allen key.
CAUTION: Always wear safety goggles. Keep your eyes away to avoid the oil getting in.
- If the oil is seen coming out of this hole the level is OK. If not, open a bolt (marked with TC) attached to the upper left side of the transmission with wrench, add original Toyota CVT Fluid TC with part number 08886-02105 printed on the tin.
Thank you for visiting Fixya.

I have a 2004 R2 - CVT fluid is to be changed every 40,000km. I've changed mine once already. Taking the drain plug out of the transmission pan drains 2-3L. New fluid is added to the CVT 'dipstick' tube, which is just behind the radiator with a black plastic head on the dipstick. A local CVT specialist sold me type NS-2 fluid, which has been working well for 12,000km. I also changed the filter on top of the transmission with a WIX 51365 which my autoparts shop found using the OEM filter part number. Hope this helps!
