I have a 1999 GMC Suburban 1500 that started having front end popping/clicking yesterday. Tonight went to back into my parking spot, pulled forward to adjust and it did not move? I can only pull it forward...


Not CV. Red means transmission fluid. On front frame probably means you have a transmission cooler which is a smaller separate radiator that keeps the transmission fluid cool. That's probably where the leak is or the line leading to it. Check your transmission fluid (it has a dipstick) and make sure it shows at the proper level on that dipstick. Add transmission fluid by pouring into same tube dipstick is in. Drive to nearest shop and repair leak.

Transmission fluid leak ,most on top of tranny


This is how to service your transmission. Ensure to follow these steps to check the existing level to see in fact how much fluid your losing and if your at risk of a blown tranny with little to no fluid
  • Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.

  • Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.

    How do you put transmission fluid in a 2001 Ford Excursion


    first read your owners manual so you know exactly what type of transmission fluid and how to read the dipstick. Make sure you know the difference between the oil dipstick and the transmission dipstick. Buy a long narrow funnel at the parts store where you buy the fluid. It will have to fit into the transmission dipstick tube. Add fluid through the transmission dipstick tube. This is not something that must be done often, unless you have a serious leak somewhere. You are at 10 years, if your tranny is slipping, be prepared to get it rebuilt.

    I Have a 2001 mits galant and is appears that the trans fluid is leaking from the starter... I have never seen this before, why could/would this happen?


    It is probably leaking from the torque converter in the bell housing. The torque converter has seals on it , it is full of automatic transmission fluid, is spun by the motor and in turn transfers the motor energy to the transmission. Have you checked your dipstick for your transmission fluid lately? If it is coming out by the starter there is probably a lot in the bell housing.

    My transmission leaks what should i replace


    There are at least 5 places on the Automatic transmission that can over time, and mileage develope fluid leaks. Front converter seal at the front of the transmission,pan gasket in the center,dipstick tube o ring at the center on one side ,speed sensor o ring,and the tail shaft seal at the rear,of the transmission.
    Place a flat piece or huge card board,under the engine and transmission,after driving you will see where the fluid,red in color is dripping. Its easier to spot exactly where the leak is comming if you can look under the car,while it is running, The easiest leak is the pan gasket,the dipstick tube, and the speed sensor,then the rear housing tail shaft bushing and seal.
    If the front seal(converter seal) is leaking the transmission will need removed,and the seal,and maybe even the front pump bushing Replaced,it would be a good idea to replace the bushing esp if it has high mileage,80,000 or 100,000 miles of use.Change the fluid and the filter,while repareing the leak or leaks.Is a good idea.

    Transmission fluid all leaked out of 2002 dodge grand caravan, are they easy to replace?


    Kelli,

    replacing the transmission fluid is easy, but you really need to find out why and from where the old fluid leaked. Under the hood in the engine compartment you will find a dipstick (gauge to check the fluid level) which is essentially the same as the oil dipstick in its performance, but different in location. It should be clearly marked as such.

    Pull dipstick out and insert funnel into the opening (filler tube) and add 4 quarts of ATF Plus 3 Type 7176. Start the engine and allow it to idle for approx. 2 minutes

    Apply the parking brake and push down on the brake pedal while idling and run the gear selector through the gears, stopping at Park.

    Check the dipstick and add fluid so that the level is 1/8 inch below the "ADD" indication on the dipstick if necessary. Allow the van to run for around another 10-15 minutes to achieve normal operating temperatures.

    Check the fluid level again to make sure it reached the "Hot" indicator level on the dipstick, and add more fluid if needed and then replace the dipstick in the filler tube.

    I would definitely find out why you have leaked all of your transmission fluid before refilling it.

    I hope this helps and good luck!b989e6d.png

    Dipstick for transmission fluid


    There is no transmission dip stick... it is a sealed system and no service is necessary. If it's leaking, you'll need to have the seal replaced.
