The engine is on the right side of the car, therefore the oil pan is on the right side. Why do you wish to know.

1999 Dodge Caravan 3.0 on the right side there is a large square pan (larger that oil pan) looking underneath it appears antifreeze is pouring out in a steady stream from one of the bolt holes on this...


I believe u are referring to the tranny pan. And if u are loosing that much fluid I would start looking around the block for any sings of a blown head gasket. If u live in colder climate it could also be a freeze plug that is bad. In Minnesota I see this all the time. People think they can do there own coolant flush and end up putting to much water in and freezing the block partially and when it thaws loose coolant from that plug. I would suspect a bad rear seal in the motor or a bad oil pan gasket be the cause of the oil. But without seeing the vehicle and the leaks I cannot say for certain but those are the things I would think it to be. Now no offense to you at all, but I think I would take it in to a shop to find the problem, or a food friend that knows about cars, like what a tranny pan is. And like I said no offense to you. But to me this sounds like it could be a big deal of work not for the novice.

I found a little yellow piece with o ring in oil pan of an automatic transmission in an 03 ford econoline van


dont worry about that it is just a plug that is in the dipstick tube from factory. When they put the dipstick in it falls out and stays in the pan until you get a tranny service and change your fluid and filter

Why does my 1995 GMC safari van not turn over when I start it? It comes on, but it doesn't turn to start the car.


sound's like the starter motor packed it in! the starter site's on the drivers side of the oil pan right next to the tranny under the van, if u can remove it u can have i checked at a local napa or pepboys

Tranny leaking fuild


No way to tell over the net. There are 10+ places where tranny fluid could leak from. You need to powerwash the car and then run it for 20min and get a more specific place where the fluid is coming from. And maybe we can help you better. Possible gasket, hole in trans pan, could be a line or at the radiator or hole in the trans or even a seal at the axles!!

Possible transmission out not sure


When was the last time you had transmission oil changed and the tranny pan removed and the tranny filter changed? If never, this is your starting point.

The problem with these vans is that the tranny pan is at about a 20 degree angle under the transmission near the driver front tire. The problem with this design is that these pans eventually begin to leak at the lowest point of the pan, and over time you will not notice the ATF loss. Most likely your ATF level or cleanliness/viscosity may be bad.
Don't cry 'TRANSMISSION' until you get your tranny serviced (ATf oilc change, new tranny filter, clean magnets, clean pan, clean tranny).

Oil Consumption


Not always rings. Sometimes valve guides go bad. Thiese will allow oil to seep down into the combustion chambers. Check to see if you notice a light discharge of white smoke from the tail pipe when you start it up. This usually occurs after the car has been sitting a while(overnight,etc)

Looking for trans ID tag on my 95 explorer 4x4


It may or may not have a tag on the side of the transmission case. But, don't worry. You can identify the tranny by the bolt pattern on the tranny oil pan and the shape. Slide under the Explorer and remember the shape of the oil pan and caount the number of bolts in the pan. Or, you can run the VIN number and it will tell you the tranny model your vehicle came with.
