My 95 chevy camaro 3.4 v6 leaking trani fluid smokes when it hits exhaust pipe

wow really it needs to be fixed not this bull , it is either the gasket leaking , ck to see if it is wet with fluid around the pan sometimes you can tighten the bolts , but just snug do not overtighten and break them or change the gasket , chevys are known for the little seal ring around the dip stick tube drying out and leaking , see if it is wet with fluid at the base of the dip stick tube where it goes into the trans , if so take the one bolt that holds it in out and just pull out the tube be carful just rock it back and forth a little bit and pull like hell it will come out put some grease on the new o ring and push it back in , good luck ,

I have a 2001 Jimmy v6 4x4 and the transmission pan gasket was leaking. After replacing it and adding the proper amount of fluid i started my truck and now its leaking from both the dip stick seal and...

How did u add the transmission fluid? Did you just fill it to the marking on the stick? If you did, that's wrong.

Engine has to be at operating temperature, then filled to the hot marking. The transmission shift has to be moved through all gears including reverse, at least twice. Then the vehicle should be taken for a ten minute u have any DTC codes?

If you overfill a transmission, it can have the effects you have... try removing some through the fill tube using a suitable piece of clear plastic tubing...cheers.

Transmission is leaking after replacing the orginal with a used in a 88 crown vic how can i fix it and whats wrong with it?

the only places it can leak are the front and rear seals,The dip stick tube has an Oring or rubber boot on it, the pan gasket, And the over flow /breather tube on top of the transmission. If it's coming from the top then it is over filled. Most bad /excessive leaks come from the dip stick tube, damaged the Oring or forgot the rubber boot.

How do I replace the oil dipstick tube?

The dipstick can be pulled out of the block with a pair of vicegrips and the new one driven down into the block. Before trying to pull the dipstick tube out make sure it is not held onto the block with a small bolt.

Transmission dip stick leak on my 1998 S10 Blazer.

you can replace the seal. some use an o ring some use a grommet. either way pull the tube out. have to remove the bellhousing bolt that holds tube. and change out seal. remember when you remove the tube fluid is going to pour out so have a pan underneath.
