The gears do not change and from the owners manual a possible problem is indicated as a leaking transmission. The vehicle is a 1998 model. I have never had to put in automatic transmission fluid since I...

Yes, low transmission fluid from a leak will cause loss of gear-changing ability. Also, eventually,
if you were to try to drive the car on a dry transmission (for a distance as short as 4 blocks), you
can permanently ruin the transmission.
Most mechanics would advise you to top up the transmission fluid and drive to your nearest
transmission repair shop, where they will probably not determine the source of the problem and
fix it - most transmission shops don't repair transmissions, they simply replace them, and send
the faulty transmission to a real transmission repair shop, from which they order their rebuilt
replacement transmissions.

My 1994 Ford Explorer Limited 4X4 had a really bad leak after driving it and all the transmission fluid drained out when i put the vehicle in gear. Is that the front seal? maybe the water pump?

If your having to add transmission fluid and not coolant, then the water pump is ok, fill with transmission fluid look under truck, if fluid is coming out of between engine and transmission housing, then bad front transmission seal.

I would change out the transmission fluid and put some transmission additives in there, see how the transmission shifts after that. Worse case have the transmission rebuilt.

The struts are about $150 apiece plus labor. If the car runs fine besides those two problems I would fix it and keep it, it's alot cheaper than a car payment.

2003 dodge neon transmission issues

Well no metal shavings should be in the filter if there is there is,something is not right internally in your transmission.When there is larger metal shavings in your tranny filter your tranny is probabley gonna have to be rebuilt or replaced.You can try changing the fluid and filter and see if that helps but nore than likely you will need to change out tranny with a new or rebuilt one.

Everything was rebuilt on the transmission. However, then driving over 50mph the oil leaks. What can possibly be wrong.

If oil is leaking from the transmission then one of the seals was installed improperly take it back to the person who rebuilt it and ask them to take a look at it for you and repair it if it's warrentied.

Transmission wont go in gear when it is warmed up

it feels like you have a transmission pump problem which is common with chrysler front wheel drive(caravan).when fluid warms up it probably looses pressure. I recommend to get a pressure check when hot.
