Check the transmission oil level on the dip stick whilst the engine is running. If it is low top it up by adding extra via the dipstick tube. I assume the line that broke was one of the cooling hoses to the radiator coil within the main coolant radiator. If the car was run for some time before the fluid loss was noticed than excessive wear will have occured to the brake bands and clutches. These wear fragments may be clogging the filter impeding fluid flow and this in turn will make the transmission unresponsive. If you transmission fluid is brown (see dipstick) instead of 'healthy pink' then I would suggest a new filter and transmission fluid change.

Sounds like you have damaged the transmission clutch pack.

Transmision big leak


you will need a small pipe cuter and a compression fitting that fits whatever size line you have. may also need an extra piece of line if the line is broken in more that a few spots or more than an inch or 2 apart. just cut out the broken section and slide the compression fitting ends onto each side of the line with the ring inisde toward the cut. then connect bothe ends to the center section of the fitting, pushing the lines together as you tighten it. then just fill your transmission to the proper fluid level and you should be good to go.

Transmision fluid leaking on ground what would be the problem?


Depends on where it's leaking from. Could be a bad hose going to the cooler, could be a bad fitting at the cooler, could be the front seal on the transmission. You need to clean the underside of the car real good and then park your car over some cardboard. that way when it drips, you can figure out about where it's leaking. Could also be leaking from the fluid pan due to loose screws or a failing gasket.

I believe either the a.c. hose or the radiator hose broke. Can i safely drive it to a nearest car shop or should i tow it?


If the a/c hose is broken, there would be a oily film in the engine compartment. If a coolant line or radiator hose is broken, you would have alot of fluid on the ground under the car [couple of gallons. First , remove the radiator cap and see if you have coolant there. Also start the car and if fluid starts comming out then the car will not be good to drive and should be towed.The car engine will be safe to run for 30 seconds before damage occurs, if coolant comes out. But not safe to drive. Let me know if that helps

In the morning my son drove at his school , when he get on the park, saw transmision fluid under the car. My question is how can lost all trasmission fluid the car?. My car is a taurus 2000.My son said...


This leak could be from another vehicle that was parked before your son arrived , OR- the transmission cooler lines are leaking, due to rust. This is the most probable cause. These steel lines either keak at the fittings or sometimes the steel lines rust out causing a leak..
I reccommend that you take the car to your repair shop for a further inspection..

Loss of breaks. Brake fluid leaking from brake line near rear wheel where the line is strapped to the frame. Any ideas? Am I looking at a big repair bill?


No, happens all the time to rusty lines. Have it towed to a brake shop. Brake line replacement is relatively easy but requires a couple of special tools. If the line goes over the gas tank, I usually just leave the busted part up there and reroute a new splice to the wheel cylinder. Labor should be no more than a couple of hours if they do it that way.

It sounds like a transmission line has gone bad. Its not an easy fix it takes special tools and time to trace down. It may be best for a mechanic to do it.

Are there issues replacing a radiator wth transmision cooler


Not really, but some hoses require a special tool to uncouple. Take a look under at that connection. If a wrench can fit on, you should be okay. Be ready to block the hoses and be sure to keep fluids from cross contaminating. Pressure test when you are finished, and check trans fluid with engine running (usually) in park.

Oil fluid leak on left side of car-2000 buick lasabre


If its on the drivers side of the car close to the front check the transmission oil cooler lines. Especially if the fluid is redish in color. You will see them if you look up under the vehicle on the drivers side. There will be to black hoses running between the transmission and the radiator. If they are wet/dripping you found the leak.

I have a 2000 potiac grand am gt and when i first start up the car and put it in drive my engine races, but i barely move. If i let it run for about 10 minutes its fine.


Check you transmision fluid while the car is running if it is low that is the problem, it is possible that the transmision filter is dirty and needs to be replaced with new transmission fluid try those two things first.
