Transmission oil expands when it becomes hot so and is equipped with an overflow ...as for it leaking the pan itself is noted for rusting and even a pinhole or many will cause it to leak

1995 ford windstar starts right up sometimes wont move when i hit the gas it also leaks fluid from somewhere towards the front of the van i put in transmission fluid it starts driving but not for long it...


if it is a auto the fluid is transmission fluid leaking from the oil cooler at the radiator or loose hose so transmission is low on oil thats why it wont drive .have a closer look at where the oil is leaking that will help but filling it up with oil is only a very short term fix .You need a mechanic to check it out if its not a loose plug or cracked hose.

Oil leak - I see oil in the garage every morning -


check what colour the oil is firstly--- red --transmission oil==black --engine oil===dark brown --gear/diff oil. Next check the position of the oil between the front wheels - red -transmission cooler lines leak /power steering leak
black between the front wheels-- front crank seal. If you have a front drive car then you will have to be careful but the colour will tell you what is leaking and where.

Leaks gear 90 oil by the throw out bearing on my 1999 ford f350 2 wheel drive dually diesel


The only gear oil near the throw-out bearing would be in the transmission and the only way to the throw-out bearing is out the transmission front bearing retainer. I would check the vent first. It's on the transmission top. If that's free you'll have to remove the transmission and front bearing retainer to check the front bearing and seal.

Transmission front seal leaking what it cost to repair


if it is the front seal, you did not indicate whether manual or automatic, but the seal is generally 15-20 bucks, its the labour time that costs the most, my suggestion is if its manual, possibly think of doing the clutch at the same time, or if its automatic, having a tourque converter service as well

Put in transmission in feburary.


you will still need add the proper type fluid to proper fill level, get under the truck, clean up transmission so you can visually monitor where the leak is coming from. Chock the wheels, emergency brake set, start and idle vehicle check for leaks. If trans is leaking it will probably be a front seal (oil will drip from small hole in the bottom of bell housing), pan gasket, loose cooling line to radiator, or rear tail shaft leak ( where drive shaft enters the trans.) Don't forget to check the lines for pin holes and the radiator for leaks.

Front wheel drive it wont go into gear and oil sludge on the floor


I suppose you mean that there is oil on the floor where it is parked. It's the same as a Ford Taurus, and I suppose you have a 3.3 engine. Lack of oil in the transmission means that it won't go anywhere. If you fill the transmission with fluid, it will leak out again, but you might be able to drive the car - hopefully to transmission shop to fix it. If the car will not drive with fluid added, then it will have to be taken for repairs. What I do when I have a car that won't drive (and has driven to where it's parked) is to add 2 quarts of transmission fluid and then see if it will move. Normally this works & I can move it into my garage for work. Sometimes it takes 3 or so, but thats usually for full size or pickup transmissions. Rick
