there is a transmission fluid cooler built into the radiator of your truck, which means there are steel lines that run from the side of your transmission up to the radiator, on the passenger side of the truck. the lines are a common leak point due to corrosion. depending on where the leak is, the lines can sometimes be patched, but they sometimes need to be replaced (or fabricated). good luck!

kickermassen, It sounds like you have a heater core leak and this is why there is a leak from the right wheel well. This is generally the area that the drain tube for the airbox is located. Yes it is safe to drive provided that you keep an eye on the level of the coolant on a daily basis. Also, being that it is a small leak and happening only when the truck is running, watching the level is very important. No, driving any slower will not slow down the progression of the leak, it will only get worse with time. So do the repair as soon as you can and you should not have any engine damage. Good luck with this.

On the front of your truck where your radiator is there is a transmission cooler,there are lines running from your transmission to that cooler they could be leaking, the transmission cooler is behind the grill on the front of your truck infront of your radiator, and as far as a stop leak, myself it is alot cheaper than buying a transmission, I would suggest that you use CD2 transmission stop leak, just a suggestion.

1993 A4LD oil leak

My 93' Stang has the same problem. Well you got a few things there, most likely the front pump seal. That seal connects your torque converter to the trans and allows fluid to flow through it if that gets worn it may leak, but it will usally do this if the engine is running or when it gets put under a heavier load (ie: Driving up a hill) it may still leak if the engine has just been shut off. could also be torque converter or flexplate im still working on that soloution.

How can you plug the rear driveline on 1991 blazer so that i can drive it in front wheel drie only

You could remove the rear drive shaft but transmission fluid would leak out if you started to drive it on the road you could do this for a test olny . And would not recomend driveing the vehicle off the front wheels olny they are not designed to run on dry pavement the front carrier wouldn't last vary long if you could stop the oil from leaking out of the back of the transmission with out the drive shaft What you need to do is pick up a rear carrier from a junk yard and fix the rear wheels Good luck with it

All the transmisssion fluid came out and it does drive but it's very hard to go forward and backward

Don't drive it without the transmission fluid, It will tear it up if it hasn't already.

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.

Transmission fluid leak

Could be the bolt are loose or were over tightened and crushed the gasket.Could it be leaking from some other spot and running back while you drive? If so it may be the front seal.

Leaked tranny fluid.

Your transmission fluid runs to the front of the car in different lines for cooling. you busted one of the lines. figure out what is broken by looking under car when running (in park with brake on), preferably while parked halfway on a curb for better visilbility. Fix the problem or have mechanic fix it. You shouldn't keep driving, without AT fluid, the car wont move...
Hope this helps
PS Don't even think about buying stop-leak fluid..!
