Look to see if it is damaged. Try tightening the connection slightly. If it is not loose, then disconnect the connection and see if there is a break of some sort. If it looks ok then use Teflon tape and wrap the threads about 2 times. Reinstall and tighten. This should stop the leak unless there is a fracture somewhere.

Power steering fluid leaking into engine oil sump, even while stationary


PS fluid cannot possibly leak into the engine oil. They are completely separate systems isolated from one another.

The only fluid that can leak into the engine oil is radiator coolant via a crack in the engine block or engine head or via a damaged head gasket.

On cars with automatic transmissions, there is normally also a separate circuit for cooling the transmission fluid built into the radiator. The oil from the transmission is pumped by the transmission through a second heat exchanger inside the radiator.
This is a separate system but if there is a crack in the radiator where the transmission fluid is cooled it is possible for auto transmission fluid to get into the radiator coolant via a crack in the right area. If auto transmission fluid has got into the coolant an inspection of the coolant will show it.

How do i fix honda prelude 92 sports transmission fluid leaking in to radiator have put in new radiator and still leaking in?


transmission oil gets into the cooling system by a crack in the cooling coil in the radiator tank.When you say new radiator and it is still leaking oil into the radiator then either the radiator is second hand new or the transmission oil pressure is too high. have a transmission pressure checked before you fit an off the shelf still in the original wrapping new radiator. If the radiator is in good condition and not partially blocked it is possible to replace the tank that has the cooling coil in it. It is essential to properly flush out the engine using the correct detergents ensuring that all the systems are opened.. The next option is an air to air cooler for the transmission which is better than the radiator cooler idea.Costs about the same as a brand new radiator.

96 acura tl oil leak on a small fitting by the radiator


That is the transmission cooler in the radiator. Two lines connect to the transmission to circulate the fluid thru the bottom of the radiator. Tighten the fittings

My 2003 chrysler concorde is leaking transmission fluid. what is causing that?


All depends on where it's leaking from. If it's leaking from the transmission pan, then it's going to be a bad transmission pan gasket. If it's leaking from the transmission cooler line or connections from the transmission to the radiator, replace the line or the connections or just the O-rings in the connections. If it's leaking from the transmission housing where the engine and transmission mates, then it may be the from pump or Torque Converter. The leak could be coming from the CV joint inner shaft where it connects to the transmission. Good luck and keep am eye on your transmission oil level, low transmission fluid will cause transmission failure.

Oil leak after radiator change


The radiator has a transmission and engine oil cooler lines to it too. One of the oil lines are leaking, if you know which one that's have the battle. I believe the transmission line is on the passenger sides and the oil cooler line is on the drivers side. Look at where the lines connect to the radiator and see if there is signs of the leak. You may need to spray it down with brake cleaner if you not sure if it's a new leak or old leak from the accident. Good luck and hope this helps. And what do you mean by rear case gasket?? You mean the gasket that connects the transmission to the transfer case, or the rear O ring yoke gasket.

Oil leaking into coolant -- not head gasket


That vehicle has the transmission cooler built into the radiator. You may not be leaking oil into the coolant, but transmission fluid, they both make the same mess. Replacing the radiator will probably fix your problem. Let me know if this helped.

I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY ELDORADO EVERYTIME I START MY CAR ON LOW OIL PRESSURE STOP ENGINE! I BELIEVE THAT I HAVE OIL LEAKING FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE RADAITOR OR FROM SOME WHERE FROM THE FRONT OF MY ENGINE!...


Oil leaks can come from any where. Search for information on tracer dyes on-line. If its from the radiator area and the oil appears red its transmission oil. In most cars there is an area in the radiator for cooling the transmission oil. Try replacing tightning but not over-tightning the clamps in the two small hoses connected to the radiator.

2001 F-250 Super duty V-10 small amount of oil in radiator


oil in a radiator indicates that the transmission oil cooler in the radiator tank has failed and leaking transmission oil into the radiator
there are 2 possible fixes
fix one is a new radiator
fix 2 is to give the radiator oil cooler a miss altogether and opt foe an air cooler mounted in front of the radiator
the advantages here are that the radiator then has a bigger capacity to handle the engine heat as there is no hot transmission oil adding to the engine heat
the second advantage is that the transmission oil is being cooled to ambient temp and not engine temp which makes for longer transmission oil life
the disadvantage is that it cost a bit more than a radiator initially but the long term savings are real
oil to air oil coolers are available from auto transmission shops and quality auto spares shops
