Your vehicle is old enough that seals made of rubber get stiff and brittle. There are products offered in most department stores that can help limit the leaking by restoring some of the softness to the rubber. They rarely will completely stop a leak, but if you don't mind
occasional fluid level checks instead of paying thousands for a fix, these products, such as Lucas Transmission Fix, will help with the leak. Follow directions on the bottle and don't worry too much about overfilling the tranny... doesn't generally hurt anything to go a little over since it's not a pressurized system.

Manual how to replace transmision oil


The easiest way to do it would be loosen the transmission oil pan bolts on one side of the pan and work your way around each side of the pan working from one corner. As you work your way around fluid will start to leak from the initial corner. Let the fluid leak out until it is down to the level of the pan. Hold the pan up and finish removing the remaining bolts and then dump remaining fluid still in the pan. Change the fluid filter while you have the pan off and clean the pan and gasket surface and re-install the pan using a new gasket. Then fill with clean fluid and you are good to go.

Transmision fluid leaking on ground what would be the problem?


Depends on where it's leaking from. Could be a bad hose going to the cooler, could be a bad fitting at the cooler, could be the front seal on the transmission. You need to clean the underside of the car real good and then park your car over some cardboard. that way when it drips, you can figure out about where it's leaking. Could also be leaking from the fluid pan due to loose screws or a failing gasket.

It sounds like a transmission line has gone bad. Its not an easy fix it takes special tools and time to trace down. It may be best for a mechanic to do it.
