2006 Chevy Aveo manual tranny. Major leak from a pan behind the oil pan on drivers side. Is not oil but gear oil. Pan has several bolts on it, does anyone know what the pan is?


The manual transmission does have an oil pan. Try tightening the pan bolts to see if any have come loose causing the leak

Have oil leaking around the belts and in back of the motor on that side of my 1990 camry..how do I find where the leak is and how do I fix it?


The leak at the fire wall, do you see it coming from up high on your engine or just see it at the bottom dripping off? I would think in that area an oil pan gasket leak sounds like the usual suspect. Can't think of what would be leaking higher up unless its the block which u probably wouldn't want to think bout. The leak round your belts, where exactly is that coming from? Are you sure it's oil and not power steering fluid? the power steering pumps hose could be leaking and throwing fluid up on the pulleys while they are spinning. I'd make sure that isn't the case here. Hope I could help. I'd need more direct location of where fluid is coming from to help more accurately.

I HAVE 1997 FORD TAURUS, AND IT HAD AN OIL LEAK, HOW CAN I TELL IF IT IS THE OIL PAN OR A BLOWN HEAD GASKET?


the head gasket is on the engine higher than the oil pan so if the leak is not were the head meets the cylinder block and running down towards the bottom of the motor then the head gasket is not the problem.if the leak is only around the oil pan area and slightly above it then its probably the oil pan that is leaking.fluid leaks travel backwards or downwards not up.

Leaking transmission fluid


TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAKS,CAN BE FOUND AROUND PAN GASKET.CHECK PAN GASKET,IF IT LOOKS WET AND YOU SEE FLUID DRIPPING AROUND THE EDGE OF OIL PAN, REPLACE PAN GASKET, WHILE YOU REPLACING PAN GASKET REPLACE TRANSMISSION FILTER WHILE OIL PAN OFF.IF TRANSMISSION OIL PAN NOT LEAKING, CHECK TRANSMISSION OIL COOLER LINES GOING INTO RADIATOR YOU WILL LOOSE A LOT OF FLUID THERE ALSO TORQUE SHAFT SEAL WILL CAUSE HEAVY FLUID LEAK WHILE ENGINE RUNNING CHECK OIL COOLER LINES AND LOOK AT THE TORQUE AREA WHILE ENGINE RUNNING YOU WILL SEE FLUID POURING WHILE ENGINE RUNNING THE OIL PUMP PRESSURE WILL PUSH FLUID OUT AT THE LEAKING AREAS.

My oil pan is leaking around the corners. What do i do?


drain out hte old oil, Remove oil pan bolts, remove old oil pan gasket, install new gasket, install oil pan, tighten oil pan bolts to 17 ft. lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN as this will distort the gasket and cause another leak.
