At this point there probably is just a hole in the pan. But, if you run it for any length of time it will burn up the clutches or other components in the transmission. Please get fixed asap.

Hit big rock undercarriage front to back leaking fluid car died wont start


I hope you didn't get hurt , but god , you hit a big rock lol what do you expect ?
check your oil pan , transmission pan , and gas lines . and most important your starter unit
any of the following has damage ? and lost all liquids ? that can lead to catastrophic events ,
example : oil loss in engine can lead to oil pump failure , and that will lead to the cam heats and their shafts to get warped and finally blow the engine block from excessive heat .
the starter has a module that has a direct coil to the battery that might got damaged from debree or the rock itself , you need to check that first .

I have an instantly large leak of transmission fluid, and it all drained out. what could be wrong?


if the fluid is coming from the front of the transmission (near the engine) then it could be a front transmission seal blown .. if its coming from where the axels enter the transmission then you might have a blown spline seal .. you could have damage to the transmission pan .. that happens if a rock or chuck hole hits the transmission pan .. look for damage or a crack in the pan ..

Were is the location of mitsubishi mirage 2001 transmission filter????


im not sure if this model is service able for a non mechanic. but the tranny filter is located behind the tranny pan of the transmission. you will need to drain all of the transmission fluid before you take the pan off. the filter in itself is very easy to get off. it may get a little frustrating getting all of the bolts off the tranny pan. should be any where from 15 to 20 of them depending on the model. once you get the pan off, look at the new filter and judge by that on how to remove the old filter. after you get the old filter off repeat the steps of removel in the opposite order. now most tranny filters will come with a new tranny pan gasket. if it doesn't i strongly recommend buying a new one. they should not run you more than 10 to 20 bucks at any local parts store. it also would not hurt to line either side of the gasket with permtex ( i would go for the high heat red tube) line the bolt holes up and bolt the tranny pan back to the transmission. be sure not to over tighten the bolts. the tranny is only aluminum. after you have everything back together look in your owners manual to see the specific type of tranny fluid you will need and the exact amount you will need. once that is done you should be good to go

Transmission fluid flushing


In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.

I have a hole in my transmission and it is leaking


Did you drive and burn out the transmission, or did you quickly stop and shut down, just loseing all the tranny fluid?. If its not wiped out, you can probably just buy anew pan, gasket , and fluid to fix it. You doing it approx $125. A rebuilt transmisiion approx $2000

Flushing the transmission


To change the transmission fluid make sure you have purchased: 1. filter with the o-ring 2. MOPAR ATF + 3 Type 7176, p/n 05010124AA fluid (I believe it took 6 quarts?) You are not changing the torque converter fluid so there will not be 12 quarts needed.). 3. Pan gasket. You should receive the new neoprene reusable pan gasket. This is because the recommendation is to change the transmission fluid every 25,000 miles. 4. There is a fluid additive to prevent foaming? Use it.


Raise the vehicle on a hoist. Remove the pan bolts. Remove the old gasket material with a plastic scraper. There could be metal transfer if you use a metal scraper. Clean the pan carefully. Clean the magnet that sits in the pan as it collects the minute metal shavings. If you see an excess of larger particles, you really should have the transmission inspected at a shop. Replace the filter carefully looking at its arrangement before removing. It took a second look to install a new filter because I did not watch how it was situated before removing. Use a thin coat of transmission fluid on the new pan gasket. Orient reusable gasket properly with bolt holes and assemble oil pan and gasket to transmission case. Tighten oil pan bolts to 19 Nm (165 in lbs.). CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL TRANSAXLE. DO NOT ADD OIL IF LEVEL IS BETWEEN: LOWER HOLES FOR WARM OIL (100?F). UPPER HOLES FOR HOT OIL (180?F.).
