Transmission problems


Well, the car is 20 years running on the road, one can expect gaskets and seals to start leaking. If you stop the leak and keep it full, you may be alright. But running low fluid for very long will definitely damage the transmission, so do get it fixed, and keep it full but not overfull till fixed. There aren't that many places for an automatic to leak. There are axle seals where the two front axles go into the transaxle. Fairly easy to replace. There is a gasket where the bottom fluid pan bolts to transaxle. Also fairly easy to replace. There are two fluid cooling lines from transaxle to radiator or to a small radiator-like cooler in front of radiator. Leaks can develop in the lines, at the fittings where they connect to transaxle or to the radiator. Leaks anywhere there should be fairly easy to fix. There is another seal, a front transaxle seal, and if bad, fluid will be dripping off the bottom front of the tranny where it mates to the engine. If this seal is bad, the transmission will have to be removed from vehicle to replace it. A $5 seal, but the fix requires pulling the transaxle-ouch! That is about all the places where leaks can develop-except there may be some bolted on or screwed in fittings (like the reverse light switch, for one). These fittings would have seals, O-ring seals, or gaskets that may start leaking.
If it gets low on fluid that fast, it would seem that you should be able to spot where it is leaking. Use rags and wipe off all the old fluid and dirt from the transaxle. After a drive and then parked, you may be able to see where the leak has allowed new fluid to escape. Good luck.

2000 impala red circle recessed in radiator is leaking replace repair? ect...


It seems that the "black bolt" is the bolt-shaped sheet metal around the fitting for your trans cooler line. If you are certain that your connection is good and the leak is coming from around that fitting then you will have to replace your radiator as the area around the fitting is probably cracked. Take a good close-up look, with an inspection mirror and a light, to try to determine from where the fluid is leaking.
Does your other line have an O-ring?

Transmissiom fluid leak


The 2 most common places to investigate a transmission fluid leak are:
  1. Transmission lines
  2. Transmission gasket on the transmission pan
If possible, get under the car with a flashlight and inspect the transmission lines as they leave the transmission. Look for moist points usually around the fittings themselves. On the gasket, look for seepage which will occur most commonly around the bolts holding the pan up. They are a common trouble spot. If you see seepage you can sometimes stop it by tightening the bolt. Be careful not to overtighten any bolt for risk of breaking or stripping it.

1996 chevy Cavalier, where is the transmission located? It seems to be leaking transmission fluid


Your transmission is bolted to the back of the engine. (it's big). What you need to do is actually look underneath and find the source of the leak (could be a cooling line or a seal) If it's a line you can replace it. If it's a seal, that's more complicated but you could try lucas transmission conditioner to stop the leak or slow it down. (conditioner is added through the dipstick tube...if you can't find it you man not have one...then you will need someone to show you where the fill plug is).

There is a hose hanging and it seems to be leaking transmission fluid. Now it will not go in reverse. Is my transmission savable?


Look under the car and see where the hose came from and re-attach it. There are three lines there. Two are cooler lines (attach to the side of the case and run to the radiator), one is a vent line (and should not leak fluid) Check the transmission level and add whatever is necessary to bring the level back to full. While adding fluid, keep checking underneath to make sure what you are adding is not going on the ground. If the transmission is full when you first check it then you need a transmission shop to run a diagnostics test to determine the cause of the malfunction. If the trans fluid is very low and filling it gets reverse back then change the fluid and add a quart of lucas trans conditioner and it may help. But....if it was driven low for a considerable amount of time it will need a rebuild.

Transfer case removal


first remove both front and rear driveshafts. Then remove skid plate underneath transfer case. Remember to unplug the electric motor wiring harness for explorers with electronic four wheel drive switching. Remove vacuum line on the top of transfer case. Unbolt Speedometer cable mount from top/rear of transfer case. Remove five bolts connecting the transfer case to the transmission, this step will cause some transmission fluid to leak from the shaft housing (approx. half a litre) so place a drain pan underneath. Remember to either place a jack or wood blocking under transfer case before removing the last bolt connecting the transfer case as it is heavy (approx. 80-90 lbs.).

Clutch screams and grinds


try adding transmission fluid. if an auto there should be a line from under the hood, if a manual then you will have to add under the vehicle. find out the right fluid and when you are underneath look for the trans. there should be two bolts. One near the bottom, and one in the middle. Add to the middle one until the fluid leaks out the hole then plug it back up

2006 Chrysler T&C transmission leak


a bolt most likely vibrated loose and is letting transmission fluid leak out. try finding it and tighten it back up. or your dipstick housing is loose and the pressure is allowing fluid to leak out.

Leaking red fluid


The red fluid is transmission fluid, check the transmission fluid level, if it get's to low the transmission will burn out and your looking at a expensive job.
The fluid could be leaking from the transmission cooler line to the radiator in front of the car. Have it repaired and keep an eye on the fluid level to the transmission. Note: transmission fluid is flammable and may catch fire if slashed on to any hot area's like the exhaust.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Either your hydraulic clutch in your transmission has failed or your shifting linkage has disconnected or failed. Hydraulic clutch replacement is common for Ford products, especially in 2003.
