Transmission fluid coming from the front of my trans


If its dripping from the Torque converter cover it probably needs a new front seal on the transmission. Gotta pull the tranny to replace the seal. Just make sure its not coming from above like where the tranny lines go into the transmission. sometimes a leak above will settle and drip at the lowest point.

I am leaking trans fluid. What are the areas on this 3.1 auto where fluid could be lost? I assume that the pan gasket is one? Also, what is the transaxle cooler line? Could I be losing the fluid from...


The easiest way to check is put a piece of cardboard under your vehicle when it is parked in one spot.Then look for where the drip is coming from.Fluild leaks can be tricky because when you drive,the wind blows the fluid back towards the rear of the car.The fluid lines run to your radiator for cooling when you are driving your car.They can leak at either the radiator or at the transmission if so,take them loose and wrap them with teflon tape then tighten back down.. Also your pan gasket can leak which is a simple fix with some rtv sealer and a new gasket.Or you can have either a tailshaft seal leak or a front pump seal leak.The tailshaft seal is in the rear of the ****** where it meets the drivetrain.The front seal is up by the engine and the ****** would have to come out to replace that.Depending on the leak,you might try so transmission sealer additive just to see if it stops.

95 gmc sierra k1500 4x4 5spd manual noise


the leak is probably a separate issue from the noise. is the leak very bad? can you tell if it's engine oil or transmission lube/fluid? most likely the rear main bearing seal needs replacing. the noise is most likely the clutch release bearing. you should replace all components of the clutch assembly which include; clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing and piolot bearing. also have the fly wheel resurfaced. while the trans is out, you can check the rear main seal and the trans input shaft seal and replace accordingly.

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.

Tranmission leak, just purchased the van it had been sitting for about 6 months, we have driven it for about 2 days and it started to leak. Dry seals?????


Probably, go to the auto parts store.They sell stop leak fluid for the transmission.
Its really best to get the van over head (ramps?) and look and see the leak and fix it properly.It could burn up the trans out away from home if your not careful.

Transmission fluid leak


Transmissions can leak anywhere there is a seal, fitting or gasket. Most common leaks are at the trans pan gasket and fittings.. However, to find a leak the only way is to get under there and look. A mid sized leak will clean off road debris and leave a track. Keep in mind that all leaks run down and that while driving this can be blown towards the rear of the vehicle. If you find a suspicious area, clean it off with a rag & some solvent and run vehicle...watch that area for seepage. Also check cooling lines to radiator. Fluid coming from inside bellhousing indicates a bad front seal (requires trans removal to repair) Fluid should be (for aw4 units) Mercon, or any quality synthetic that covers mercon application.

Fluid leak around starter


It may be a rear crank seal, or oil from the torque converter (automatic) or the input seal on the transmission. Check your fluid levels in your engine and trans. A visual inspection will help also. you could remove the inspection panel on the bottom of the trans bell housing. As for the clunk I would be leaning towards more of a starter issue for that.

Front Main Seal is blown on the Transmission


You have to remove the transmission, remove the torque converter to access the seal. Most likely the bushing behind the seal is worn out allowing fluid to leak past the seal. After the trans. is out, take it to a trans. shop. It requires a special tool to change the bushing. Seems like a bunch of work for $10.00 in parts. The rear main seal requires pulling the pan to access it. When the trans. is out, this is the time to replace the rear main seal on the engine.
