Hi i want to know what is catilic


Hi,
They are talking about a part in your exhaust system which removes noxoius gases to the atmosphere.

It is known as a catalytic converter.....It looks like a muffler

Hope this helps

When I press the gas pedal hard and it downshifts sometimes it gives a loud hissing type sound and feels like the clutch is slipping. I have the automatic tranny and the 3.0 on my 02 spyder convertible.


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

One of the most common complaints with automatics is fluid leaks. Fluid can leak out of the driveshaft seals, the input shaft seal, the transmission pan gasket, the torque converter or the ATF cooler and line connections. If the fluid level gets low, the transmission may be slow to engage when it is shifted into drive. Gear shifts may be sloppy or delayed, or the transmission may slip between shifts. If the fluid level is really low, the transmission may cause the vehicle to not go at all. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Transmission issue. I was going up a hill (IN WV)... and my engine started to smoke. When i pulled over and examined my car it was pissing transmission fluid. ..it was more so near the front of the engine...


In your comments you say front of engine then you say coming from between the engine and transmission. By your description of your engine starting to smoke it sounds like a sudden rather large leak that sprayed or splatter on your exhaust system where it immediately would cause a smoking condition, really only two places a transmission would have enough fluid pressure during a leak to send enough fluid in a short time to cause your experience, check for a Transmission Oil Cooler Hose and or your first thought a Blown Torque Converter Seal. Torque Converter seals usaully start with a slow leak at advance towards a larger leak over time but I have seen where a entire seal has become unseated thus causing a sudden and high volume leak. Check Transcooler lines and TC seal... Hope ths helps

To verify your issue the vehicle should be raised safely on an auto lift or a on recommended weight rated jack stands to preform a visual inspection for your leak.

Transmission fluid leakage from stater motor area. 5.7L Vortec


If transmission fluid is dripping off the bellhousing your torque converter seal is leaking or your transmission pump seal is leaking. Chances are the torque converter seal is leaking since the torque converter is spinning on it any time the engine is turning, the pump seal dosen't move it just keeps fluid inside the transmission. Even though it leaks with or without the engine running I'm willing to bet if you got underneath it with the engine running you will see it leaks more with the engine running. Now if either seal is leaking it will require the engine to be removed from the transmission to get to the seal. Sorry but this isn't going to be a cheap quick fix.
