It is possible that the c-ring clip on the end of the spline shaft (which fits into the transmission) did not engage properly when re-installed. If this clip is not engaged, the shaft can pull out of the transmission and fluid can leak out past the seal. This happened to me too. The shop should be responsible for making this right.

Could be coming from the axle seal, that's where the axle fit in to the transmission, some time's while installing axle, the seal will get damage, hope this was very helpful.

Just replaced a portion of transmission cooling lines on 94 bronco I bypassed leak but wonder if hose from top of radiator go to the top of tranny and so forth for bottom and truck seams to run correctly...


Why do you think the transmission cooling line is the cause of this problem. What testing have you done? Id the transmission fluid clean and the filter has been replaced each 60,000 miles? Do yiou think the transmission is slipping?

Transmission


Your problem is a bad CV axle and outer carrier bearing failure. The grinding is coming from brake rotor on that side due to the bearing failure. the brake rotor and bearing is causing the lock down. Do not attempt to drive or further damage will occur. Transmission is probably OK. Replace both sides (CV axels and Carrier bearings, 150,000 is time) Check brake components for damage and replace pads while you are there.

2011 Ford Fusion, 49000 miles, Oil changer said my transmission fluid looks old and i should flush my transmission and refill it for 125$ thoughts?


dos'nt cost that much find good car repair shop and yes you should put in new filter and replace what fluid was lost during process. i never change all my trans fluid but changing filter makes big improvement. Should cost around 75 dollars from good repair shop or do it yourself for less.

Will it damage the car if I have a slow transmission leak to drive an hour and a half away as long as I check the transmission fluid before I leave and when I get to my destination?


My guess would depend on how bad the transmission leak is. If you notice a couple of drips in your vehicle's parking space overnight then, no It won't damage the transmission to drive it. However if there is a steady stream of transmission fluid when you are driving then, no don't drive it until the leak is repaired.

When I drive speeds of 60+ and let go of the gas pedeal, there is mild vibration felt in the steering wheel and a bit in the seat. I bought new tires/alignment in July, and got new brake pads in October....


Cv axel or motor mount The CV axel boots should be good with no tears and with thr trie off the ground and the car in park there shlud be no persectable plat between the axel shaft and the tire when rotating the trie by hand untill the transmistion park or in gear stops it. It's OK for the trans to turn a little before the trans stops it but not the axel hold the inner axel CV and turn the tire again and the inner joint should turn with the tire with no play except the trans slack. If this is good check the other axel the same way if one has more than the other just replace the one with more play anf see if you can get away with just one! The replacement axels are less than $100 new and half that for rebuilt after you turn in the core ( old one ). Their strange as they wear out and some last very long and others a shorter period. Many cars go to the junkyard with the axels in them with lots of miles and their the ones that came with the car.

I am trying to change out the cv joints and axel on my 1995 Chevy Lumina. The inner spline and metal housing will not come off. Do I need to remove the housing that is bolted directly onto the side of the...


You do not need to remove the housing, and no need to drain the fluid unless you want to change it. You will need a pry bar to get the inner joint unhooked from the trans. If you notice on the new shaft there is a little circlip near the end of the shaft that goes into the trans, this is the part that locks the shaft into the trans. If it will not come out that way, you can pull the joint out of the inner housing, clamp a set of vise grips on the joint housing an smack with a hammer.

Transaxel leaks transmission fluid


was the seal put in correctly. there is a certain way that a seal must be installed. generally i like to bake sure that there are no burrs on the shaft that slides through the seal. also the rubber part of the seal is usualy dry and they should have given you seal grease to soften it up before installation. did you use a seal driver to install the seal? trying to just tap it in with just a hammer will usually damage it and then it will leak. double check to make sure it was the right seal it's been known to happen that you go and buy a seal and you get home and it's the wrong one. i'm sure the problem is a a mis installed seal. unfortunately when you remove the seal you will not be able to reuse it due to the damage . you will have to purchase another one. hope this helps. please rate this solution....thanks
