Did you replace the rear main seal? This is where it usually leaks transmission fluid. Unles there is a crack on the housing, which can be welded with a mig welder(Gas Metal Arc Welding). Welding aluminum requires the use of a mig welder, and inert gas called argon. The machine itself cost 500 to a few thousand dollars. I have one in my shop just in case I need to weld aluminum.

Camry csi 2000 oil leak between engine and transmission


Lots of Camrys do this.

The oil will typically leak from the rear main bearing seal between engine and transmission, but that will appear at the bottom of the joint line, and will not reach the exhaust. This leak is expensive to fix and is usually left as is.

A leak from the cam cover gasket can drip into the exhaust.

The other typical leak is from the distributor shaft o-ring seal. This appears at the top of the join line between engine and trans, and can blow back onto the exhaust.

Tip

Troubleshooting oil leaks on Nissan Altima


    Your Altima uses a variety of different oils to lubricate various components. Normally, these oils won't leak. But when you do find a leak, you will almost always need to have extensive work done on your Altima to correct the problem. However, before you can replace anything, you need to know what kind of oil it is
    Check for brown or black oil leaking on the ground or on the side of the engine. This is engine oil. It lubricates critical engine components. A leak means that an engine seal has failed and needs to be replaced

    Check for red oil. Red oil is trans fluid. On your Altima, it most likely means that you have a rear main seal on the transmission that has failed. However, any seal on the transmission is possible. Transmission leaks need to be fixed immediately. A transmission can fail catastrophically in 20 minutes of driving if there is insufficient oil in the transmission

    Check for amber or brown oil leaking from your trans. This is transmission gear oil found only on the manual version of the Nissan Altima.

Transmission pan


fixing leaks in oil pans is iffy at best as the oil is in the metal making it hard to weld up. Get a pan from a wreckers.

My 88 dodge dakota has a leak between the engine and the transmission. What could the problem be and how can I fix it?


If it is motor oil, it should match the oil on the dipstick.
If it is automatic transmission fluid, it should be sort of redish and match your "tranny" fluid on that dipstick.
If it is thicker than motor oil, it should be manual transmission oil.
Motor oil leaks from the "rear main seal".
Transmission fluid or gear oil leak from the front transmission seal.
All 3 of these can look like they are coming from about the same place, where you have said.
All three of these require you separate the motor and transmission to fix them, and that means taking the transmission out of your truck.
Pretty expensive if you pay to have it done.
If you take the " tranny" out, most shops will replace both seals (one front, engine and one rear, tranny)
Depending on how much it is leaking and other things, lots of people let it leak.
If you are using a lot of fluid, perhaps it\'s time to think about repairs.
Be blessed

I have a 2000 beetle turbo and just notices it is leaking oil from around the plug which is tight and seeping transmission fluid. Is this going to be a costly fix?


OIL LEAK AROUND THE SPARKS PLUGS COULD BE LEAKING VALVE COVER GASKETS ALLOWING OIL TO SEEP BY GASKET FLOW DOWN AROUND SPARK PLUGS.TRANSMISSION LEAK IS NOT VERY EXPENSIVE LONG AS TORQUE CONVERTER SHAFT SEAL NOT LEAKING WHICH TRANSMISSION HAS TO DROPPED OUT TO REPLACE SHAFT SEAL.IF TRANSMISSION LEAK AROUND FRONT AXLE SEAL IT MAY COST A LITTLE.BUT PAN GASKET LEAK OR OIL COOLER LINES WONT COST TOO MUCH NOT HARD TO GET TO REPAIR.PHONE AROUND GET PRICE CHECKS.

Possible transmission oil leak


absorb the frluid into a white paper towell ... if it is red in color then its transmission fluid .... if its clear or brown then its likely engine oil ... if the transmission is leaking a little then there are additives that can be put in the transmission to soften the seals .. that will often fix small seal leaks ...if the leak is slight and not damaging driveways then its not likely to cause major trouble as long as you keep your eye on the transmission fluid level .. ... if its engine oil then you could have a leaking valve cover gasket, oil pressure sending unit (sensor) ... or it could be jjust from spills as oil is changed or added .
