Try to get an oil change or seal under the car to keep the trans fluid leaking.

Car won't start & leaking lots of some kind of fluid


The computer stopped the car to prevent you driving it and destroying the engine. So you will not be able to restart it until the problem is fixed.

Have you checked any of the following:
== engine oil level
== radiator coolant level
== if its an auto trans, the auto transmission fluid level.

Drop a white tissue into the fluid the car is dropping. Is it watery or oily and what colour is it.

Where do you put transmission fluid in 2005 dodge neon?


If the trans is an automatic the dipstick is usually marked quite clearly and can be found near the brake-fluid reservoir. If the trans is a manual then you need to get under the car to find it. But, either way, if the trans needs fluid then it is leaking, and if it is leaking you need to get the leak repaired. A trans that is low on fluid will fail, and usually people don't realize they are low on fluid until it is too late.

I have an 1987 toyota supra just did the breaks on and went to test them and moved the car and could stop but i got out of the car and there some red milky looking fluid on the ground that wasnt there...


Old brake fluid can be a dark brownish red color due to contaminates like rust in the system. But the fluid you speak of could be automatic trans fluid. Is your car an automatic? The power steering system in this car also takes automatic trans fluid. Check the fluid levels in the reservoirs. You may have either a auto trans leak or a power steering leak.

WHERE TO ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID ON A 1997 TOYOTA COROLLA WITH AUTO TRANSMISSION. ALSO, THERE IS A STREAM OF TRANS OIL EXITING JUST AHEAD OF THE TRANSMISSION ITSELF. IT APPEARS THAT EITHER THE SUPPLY-LINE...


you can add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube for the transmission. as far as the lines, most transmission fluid lines are rubber in the middle and aluminum on the ends, so they shouldn't rust. if its leaking fluid that fast, its probably a hole in the rubber part. also make sure the dipstick tube is seated well in the transmission. neither one of which is hard to fix, just determine where the leak is coming from first

Series II Discovery oil leak from the front steering union


Unfortunately Discoveries will always eventually leak some fluid, People who say theirs do not leak have just not found the problem yet. I just traded a 2003 for a new vehicle. First the power steering can and does leak but since the fluid capacity is not that much, if you have a continous leak and the power steering still works it is probably not the leak you need to address. also the plastic splash guard makes it difficult to identify leaks easily. My 2003 discovery was leaking for a while the leak was from the auto trans cooler. Check the leak colour, white paper under car, red fluid will be the trans fluid, The power steering fluid in the car is a special fluid (not trans fluid) if the correct fluid would be a greenish colour. Other than this oil leaks can be plentiful.
