It might be the transmission cooler line if you have one on this car, that leads to the radiator area.

i think you just have a bad abs sensor, most times when a mechanic checks a sensor they will tap on it to see if a warning light comeson or goes off, since you say it only does this when you hit a bump or pothole i dont believe anything is wrong, as long as your not hearing or feeling anything unusual i wouldnt worry about it, although i know a light coming on telling you something is wrong can be very annoying

Yes, this is very important maintenance procedures. Transmission should be serviced (filter, oil, and oil pan gasket replaced) @ 60K miles, plugs at 100K miles (I'd replace them early for better gas mileage), and radiator flushed @ 60K miles. Hopefully this helps!!

WHERE TO ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID ON A 1997 TOYOTA COROLLA WITH AUTO TRANSMISSION. ALSO, THERE IS A STREAM OF TRANS OIL EXITING JUST AHEAD OF THE TRANSMISSION ITSELF. IT APPEARS THAT EITHER THE SUPPLY-LINE...


you can add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube for the transmission. as far as the lines, most transmission fluid lines are rubber in the middle and aluminum on the ends, so they shouldn't rust. if its leaking fluid that fast, its probably a hole in the rubber part. also make sure the dipstick tube is seated well in the transmission. neither one of which is hard to fix, just determine where the leak is coming from first

1990 buick lesabre when in drive seems like its in neautral


Hello, I'm not sure if you are still dealing with this problem, but here are a few tips.
1.When the car is running and at normal operating temperature, check the transmission fluid level. If the transmission fluid level is low, this will cause the Transmission to slip when in drive.
2.If you transmission fluid level is low, this usually indicates you have a leak. Transmission fluid does not need to be changed like other fluids such as oil.
3.You may also want to add a "stop slip" agent to you car, this may help or possibly correct the problem.
4.If all else fails, I would recommend you take you car into a certified Transmission shop. Please vote or rate this reply if you found this reply helpful.
