I have taken many different microwaves apart and have yet to discover one that contains a fluid filled component or heard any reports of a microwave leaking red fluid or any other colour fluid.

On the off-chance it is splashed ketchup or someone playing a joke I suggest you investigate further by taking a sample and sniffing it and/or tasting it. Any fluid used within food machinery has to be food safe.

If it is definitely a cooling or lubricating fluid it should be taken to the repair shop for examination unless it is under warranty.

Transmission oil leak


park it ... let it sit for a bit and see if it drops a drop of fluid.
if it does, then inspect it...
what color is the fluid?red/pink = trans fluid
dark brown/black = oil
use the senses God gave you... touch it.. is it oily or grimy?
leaks are common , seals fail as do gaskets...

Leaking red fluid humming sound when accelerating


Transmission fluid! You need to find the leak and stop it; top up the transmission before it is damaged. Check the lower pan for a gasket leaking and examine the transmission fluid cooler lines running to radiator or to in front of radiator.

Honda crv drive indicator light blinks


Hi, basically this is the equivalent of the engine light except it indicates that something may not be right with the transmission. It could be something as simple as a malfunction in a sensor.

Have you checked the fluid? Have you ever changed it? Did you use only Honda recommended fluid? It may simply need to be topped off. Is there any indication of a leak? Is the fluid red or brown? If it isn't red then change it. Drain and refill it at least twice or up to four times for a thorough change. Less than half of the old fluid drains out with each change so it is necessary to drain an refill a number of times to get out most of the old fluid. After doing this check the fluid after using the vehicle for a day or two to see if it needs topping off.

Take it to a place like Autozone or Advance Auto Parts and have them put a code reader on it if changing the fluid or topping it off does not solve the problem. If you have a leak get it fixed.

Use only Honda recommended fluid available at the dealer or at Carquest Auto Parts stores

Fluid leaking possibly from transmission


Several places the transmission can leak, pan gasket is most common place with cooler line fittings being next most common.Clean all the fluid off with a can of brake clean you can buy at a parts store.Make sure engine is off first and that the transmission has been topped off so as better to produce a leak.After it is clean crank and let idle on level ground for 30 minutes then shut it off and get a flash light and see if you have a leak and follow it to the source(fluid runs downhill like water)If you have no leak let it set overnight and check in the morning.Good luck!

My 2001 ford taurus will not move at all with car on. Can place in all gear & still will not move a inch. What has happen


with the engine running,in park, open the hood. pull the transmission dipstick,located on passengers side,just below the windsheild.the handle may be red,or yellow.pull the dipstick out and read it.the fluid level should always be in the crosshairs or XXXXXX's it has a full reading, at the top of theXXXXX's but only while the engines running and motors warm. it [the dipstick has a cold reading,but more acurate when read warm,and in PARK. always use FOMOCO transmission fluid when adding transmission fluid to your car. that means ford motor company fluid only.[fomoco] is it leaking fluid at all? do you see red fluid anywhere that you park the car? if so,then you have either a bad front or rear transmission seal. either ones a better thing than a bad transmission ,sounds like you're just low on fluid,but i got to ask where the fluid leaked or where it went? suggest that you check for leaks. you may add fluid to your transmission and it moves, but be alert,look for a leak somewhere.thank you for choosing fixya.com

No reverse willnot select reverse, auto, and are the engines free spinning ?


check your transmission fluid.....if possible use a transmission additive to try and solve this....or top up with transmission fluid as required...check for leaks under your car of colored oil..usually red...you could have a leak and losing transmission fluid...if so top up with a sealant fluid for transmissions...this usually works for small leaks...you have to drive about 30kms to get the fluids to circulate...for the seal to work..

Top goes down but not up


the hydraulic pump /resevior is located behind the back seat.lift up front of bottom cusion,pull forward,remove.lift up on seat back,like it's hanging on hooks.remove.locate fill screw or rubber plug on top of resevior.w/ top down fluid should be 1/2'' to3/4''below top of fill hole.it uses automatc trans fluid,so if you see red fluid under the seat you have a leak.

I have a 2003 4x4 Durango a red fluid is leaking from the top of the rear axel bell housing, the ABS light is on, I know the ABS operates off of hydrolic oil, a line runs across the top of the axel, would...


a red fluid is most likly trans fluid. the abs has nothing to do with that, the abs light could just be a faulty sensor, besides, brake fluid is clear or brakish. now, check to see where the leak is coming from. what i dont understand is brakelines run over the rear diff on most vehicles. see if the leak is coming from somewhere else.

my reconmendation is to take engine brite, which can be bought at any autoparts store, spray area of suspected leak, then rinse with a hose or powerwasher. wait for it to dry and see if the leak becomes more clear, how thick would you estimate the lines to be? 1/4 inch?? 1/8 inch. clean it and find out where the leak is coming from
