Transmission fluid leaking everywhere?


The proper answer is to get it to a service center as quickly as possible (or have it transported/towed there if the leaking has stopped - that means that there is no more fluid to leak and driving it could damage the transmission).

If you are a DIY kind of person, park the vehicle in a non-leaked spot, get on the ground, and look underneath the vehicle to see where it is leaking from. Odds are good that perhaps the transmission fluid plug has become loose (or fell out), or you have banged the bottom of the vehicle on something hard like when driving over a tall curb or too fast over a speed-bump and created a hole for the fluid to drain out of.

In any case, unless you have the knowledge and the tools to fix it yourself, you are better off having the vehicle taken to a proper local auto repair shop to have them take a look.

My 2000 Honda Odyssey (240k) made a loud clank noise when I went slowly over a speed bump. Now, when I turn the wheel-- either driving slowly or in park-- I hear and feel two or three rubbing or snapping...


The Hondas do have at the back suspension arms which are holding the wheels,Big suspension bushing,which when they snap off or cracked,are causing clank noises because are not holding enough the rear axle. on the other hand the vehicle loose the tracking as a result to cause wear and tear of the rear tires as well. Ask from your local mechanic to examine your car.

fluid on the pad can cause the pad to stick and then slip--this can cause noise when the pad breaks loose from the disk. fix the leak and clean everything with brake cleaner (or put in new pads)

When to change suspension springs chevrolet venture


if the vehicle is sagging or bottoming out on bumps and potholes it's time to replace springs. if vehicle bounces and has excessive sway then the shocks (struts) are bad.

2003 Pathfinder SE is bouncing


> Does this vehicle have shock absorbers or leaf springs?
It would be either leaf or coil springs; shock absorbers serve to prevent that continued bouncing and these may be simply shot.
The crude way of checking shocks still works somewhat:
- Position yourself on each corner of the vehicle and through repeated pushing down and letting the corner come back up, get some momentum and then let go at the bottom of the cycle.
If the shocks (which may be located within coil springs- McPherson struts) are still effective, the vehicle should rise slightly once and then settle. If they are blown, there will be some continued 'overshoot.'
The leaked fluid can be checked for odor; brake fluid is pretty distinctive while lubricants will smell somewhat like oil or grease. This could be from a shock but most are now gas filled rather than with a type of hydraulic fluid.

I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan. Rear end is


Rear springs sound weak. Take it to a spring shop, they are usually pretty fast & cheaper than dealer, but if price sounds too high, head out for a second opinion. Most brake and alignment shops can do it too.

96 Golf 2.0GTI 8v knocking noise from rear when accelerating


its probably your bump stops. the vw ones are very soft. i bought ford escort (the shape after the xr3) ones and cut them a little down to fit. i think the noise is either your shock touching or the sound of the tire scraping the body of the car. hope this helps.
