SOURCE: leaking transmission fluid

This problem if left unrepaired can cost you thousands of dollars.
Transmission fluid will typically be red in color,,and will leak from near the center of the underside of the car.
Take it into a repair center as soon as you can

SOURCE: 2001 Silverado: I'm leaking transmission fluid but it seems to be ...

there is a transmission fluid cooler built into the radiator of your truck, which means there are steel lines that run from the side of your transmission up to the radiator, on the passenger side of the truck. the lines are a common leak point due to corrosion. depending on where the leak is, the lines can sometimes be patched, but they sometimes need to be replaced (or fabricated). good luck!

SOURCE: 2001 Jetta VR6, 76k miles. Transmission fluid leaking.

Auto or Std trans??

If auto here's the issue...

Keep in mind Auto transmissions don't like to be run dry.

Also keep in mind that the 01M Automatic you most likely have retails for like $4000 just for the unit, not installation.

The corner trans guy can't rebuild the trans. This is a special unit

Just to check the fluid-

Hook up a Laptop with Vag.Com software installed.

Start the car and go into the transmissions data blocks and go to block 005, this will display fluid temp.

-ATF temperature not above approx. 30C (86F)
-Vehicle level
-Selector lever in "P"
-If ATF is below 30C (86F) bring the ATF up to test temperature.
Test temperature: 35C to 45 (95 to 113F)
-Remove ATF level plug from oil pan.

CHECKING PHYSICAL QUANTITY

If ATF drips out of hole:
ATF need not be topped up.
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.

If ATF does not drip out
-Remove plug from filler line.
-Fill with VW ATF (G 052 162 A2) until ATF runs out of level hole
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm (11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.

CAUTION!
Too little or too much ATF will adversely affect transmission function.

Hi I just purchase a 2001 Chrysler minivan The car turns on but wont drive and is leaking oil transmission Help me wats the problem?


Without transmission fluid the car wont move, it mostly leaks at pan gasket,the transmission cooler line or front transmission seal. I have to say you may be safe to add 1 quart ATF 4 transmission fluid, being in front of the vehicle looking in the engine the dipstck is where you add transmission fluid it on the right hand side yellow handle. pull the dipstick out get a funnel that can help you add transmission fluid if the leak is not that bad this can help you get to shop that can fix the leak and put you on the road

Trans fluid in radiator tray


You are leaking transmission fluid from either the fluid cooling lines that run from transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator, or leaking from the reservoir itself. Hopefully, it's only the lines and may just need tightening to stop the leak.
There are two lines to the radiator's reservoir. One brings fluid from transmission to the reservoir, and a return line back into the transmission. Probably located on driver's side of the radiator, one will be near top of radiator, and one near the bottom. Small copper or steel lines that may also turn into rubber lines. Clean the area well with rags to locate the leak. Will probably need to have the car running to make it leak, while looking for it. You could also take a wrench and try tightening the fittings at the radiator, and tighten any rubber hose clamps that you see. If it's not the lines or hoses that are leaking, then the radiator may need to be pulled off for repairs or replacement. But 9 times out of ten, it is a leak from one of the lines.
When fixed, don't forget to check your transmission fluid level. Or keep adding till it is fixed.

1991 Chevy Lumina APV. The transmission fluid is leaking. Can this be a gasket or seal problem? Also, can it be I put too much fluid in?


Leaking transmission fluid can usually be traced to 1 or 2 problems:
  1. leaking transmission line - a line could be bent or it could be leaking around a fitting, the most common place for a transmission line to leak
  2. the gasket around the transmission pan is worn - this would cause leaking and having the filter and fluid changed should fix this problem
To answer your other question, YES it is possible to overfill the transmission fluid. Check the dipstick (with the car running) and ensure that the level stays between the recommended marks.

My transmission gage went to hot & i noticed trans fluid dripping on my way home. truck still shifts ok. 2002 ford f-250 diesel 4x4


The most common place to leak is the rear seal. You will have to put your eyes on it though. Make sure to fix the leak, and refill the system with the correct fluid before driving it again, because transmissions are expensive!

I'm losing automatic transmission fluid. Is there any common history to support a theory of leaking transmission cooling lines?


I just checked for technical service bulletins and there is nothing for leaks from tranny or lines. Your vehicle is 15 years old if they havent been replaced yet it is possible it it just time to change them. Check where it goes from metal to rubber on the lines that is most likely where it will be wet. If itis wet there more than likely you'll need new lines

I have a 2001 ford f250 powerstroke diesel was driving and transmision started to slip drove about 3 miles and now wont move forward at all but reverse works fine


Some of the Ford transmissions actually have an aluminum gear which will go out somewhere around 150 to 200 thousand miles. OR it could be really low on transmission fluid.

Automatic transmission not shifting into 3rd or 4th


call a dealer and they will tell you you are suppose to change your transmission fluid every 2 years or 30,000miles but if you was carrying this much load you may have over heated the transmission so I would shop around and get a good deal at a transmission place where they can replace the filter and the fluid and adjust the bands on the transmission if needed
