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.

I have 2005 mitsubishi galant v6 transmission stopped working while driving every gear is like im in neutral. Transmission never slipped or anything


First thing to do is check the transmission fluid level and check for leaks. If the transmission is very low on fluid, for example a cooler line broke, it would cause this situation due to no pressure. If you do not see any outside leaks, but transmission fluid is very low, check your radiator overflow tank, if it is overfull and milky, this would mean the Trans cooler that goes through the radiator is leaking fluid into the coolant system.

Every so often, when I try to start my car, it just clicks. after a couple of tries it will crank and be just fine for weeks. we think it might be the starter, but auto zone says starter is okay. could...


Sounds like Solenoid. U can replace it if you know how to do a starter rebuild. Go to local auto store and see if they have it or a rebuild kit. Otherwise just buy a new/ rebuilt starter and put that in.

Mitzy fto 1995 no gear


The Mits automatic trans of the mid 1990's are not the most reliable. In fact the number one problem with the Mits Galants of that era is the auto trans dies. Unless you have a 4WD trans I believed the Eclipse used the same trans as the Galant.

This is the kind of thing you have to pretty much take to a trans shop. One word of caution; do not let them take your trans from the car to figure out what is wrong with it unless you are planning on having them fix it. This is a typical ploy of trans shops. They get your car in and get your approval to pull the trans to check it out. You will not get your car back together unless they rebuild the trans so call around and ask about the price of having the trans rebuilt before you take it anywhere so you have an idea who is going to rip you off so you can avoid them right up front. With that said..... Assuming the transmission is filled with the correct amount of transmission fluid you should know that the major weakness with the the 7th generation Galants (1994-98 Galants) is the auto trans fails. Generally you will see a gradual loss of function. First it will stop going into some gears, then it will not even move the car at all for a short waiting period. In the end it just wont move the car period. Ultimate recourse is to either rebuild the trans or replace with a manual unit from a junk yard. Information on doing a 5 speed swap can be found here: http://www.thegalantcenter.net/showthread.php?t=38309 Infomration on galants in general can be found under the 7g section of http://www.thegalantcenter.net

1995 mitsubishi galant will not engage in any gear but park does keep it from rolling. Would this be because of the torque converter?


You have a 7th generation mit galant. These are great cars but they have one major weakness; the auto transmision dies. Generally you have to have the trans rebuilt or many owners swap ion a manual trans. There is a great web site for owner's of the mits galant. http://www.thegalantcenter.net/ lots of great information about galants to include hwo to swap the auto trans for a manual. You want to go to http://www.thegalantcenter.net/forum.php and scroll down to 7 generation section of the forum Galants are great cars; I own 4 of them, all 7g

2001 Ford Windstar transmission fluid leak


Sorry!,..More than likely the front seal of the transmission has actually cut a groove into the torque convertor neck.I have seen these hundreds of times, when the van is hot the seal wont hold the fluid pressure behind it and trans fluid will leak past...also the lines/hoses are on the side of this transmission..the vent is located on top of this trans near the main connector,.not in the front(Ax4n).,, seriously go to an accredited trans shop only for this repairATRA......again sorry for the bad new..Bob Stinson
