Transmission is leaking

I took my 92 toyota corolla in for a oil change and was told the transmission is leaking and I need a new gasket and plug and the passenger side axle leaks. Is this something that needs done asap or can it wait and what am I looking at for cost. I am a senior citizen and can't afford much. Thank you

Transmission seal will run anywhere from 450 -800; CV axle will run 200 -250 dollars depending on garages. you can call around and wheel and deal and get the best price on your repair and asked for warranty to guarranty their work in writing or receipt. Use the last lowest bid of the estimate to negotiate the repair work to the next repair shop and see if they can and willing to beat it. 4-5 estimate from different shop will do. You must have small leaks and unnoticeable, if it small leaks and its not making a big spot or puddle on your drive way than it will be fine to drive as long you keep the leaks monitor. Locate your transmission dip stick under the hood and keep extra transmission fluid and funnel on hand and keep the fluid to max/full level according to the dip stick marking. Do not over fill and will cause more pressure and more leaks. As long you keep it full mark and keep it monitor that you don't have to put 1 quart every month than its fine. If you start to get a big puddle and smoke is coming from underneath the car from exhaust burning transmission fluid than you are in trouble. Your driving condition will play a big factor also, if you drive a short distance point A to point B with small leaks than you are fine. If driving a long distance you have to make sure during your travel all of the fluid is not leaking out and next thing you know your transmission is smoking, not shifting from running it empty. Your CV axel can go for while without hurting the car. CV axle will let you know when its time to change because it make a loud click click sound every time you make a sharp turn. Most shop will replace the axel with a rebuilt one than fixing the old axel. Its not that much more expensive getting a rebuilt VS repairing the old one; by the time that mechanic have invested his time fixing the old one than getting rebuilt one its probably 15-20 buck diffrent. You can drive a long time with that axel, I have seen people drive on it for 2 to 5 year or more, focus getting your transmission fix first before anything else than your axel. I also seen people drive years on leaking transmission but they keep it fill and monitor. good luck and I hope that help some.

WHAT'S NORMALLY THE CAUSE TO BREAK AN OIL PAN FOR TOYOTA COROLLA CE 2005


Bring it to a mechanic different than the one who gave you that advice. I suspect that the plug gasket is leaking. It is possible that you need a new oil pan if you hit it with something like a rock or driving over a curb. Again a mechanic can inspect it and tell you right away. The dealer oil changes have nothing to do with this.

I would advise getting a second opinion A mechanic told me my 92 Le sabre 's tranny was shot and when I took it to another mechanic he found my spark plug wires were shorting out and causing the car to down shift when you went up a slight incline and it would jump in and out of different gears. I replaced the plugs and wires myself and it rau like new.

Oil in spark plugs


If you saw fresh oil, you were looking at valve cover gasket-seals leaking into the spark plug tubes.

Hard shifting 2002 toyota corolla manual transmission


sounds like you were running it without oil..that would explain why there was no oil leaking on the ground..the gearbox would now be worn out so it's best to get another trans,, could be a rebuilt or from a scrapped crashed vehicle..if the trans was running out of oil, best not try to repair it..

Passenger side cv axle leaks transmission fluid. The axle has excessive play when moved up and down. Is problem inside transmission to allow the up and down play. No play in and out.


It will be part of the differential section. Usually easier, quicker and cheaper to source a second gearbox. Gearbox's are full of gears believe it or not, but also spring parts etc. They are not for the amateur to overhaul and often require specialised tools.
