I just took my 06 jeep cherokee to the shop, because it is leaking trans fluid like crazy. Am I more than likely going to need a new transmission or is there a less expensive alternative even possible?

It could be the transmission pan gasket that is leaking. if so replace gasket and refill with tranny fluid to proper level.

My Jeep went front end into a ditch and had a front impact with the ditch wall, now the transmission fluid has all leaked out quickly and it won't shift into gear.


How fast did you run into the wall?
You said all fluid leaked out. Transmissions need the fluid to work.
Need to go to the transmission experts who will probably say you need a rebuild or a need a new transmission or a new vehicle.

What i sthe first sign of the transmission going bad on our 1996 jeep cherokee?


if your trans is slipping when driving or if when you shift from park to reverse or drive it has a delay it doesn't necessarily mean the whole transmission is going. Could be something as simple as low or leaking fluid, a solenoid, a gasket...start with a trans service, if there is excessive metal in the pan, then your trans gears are going and you will need an overhaul or reman trans. Reman is cheaper and has a better warranty than an overhaul--faster too.

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.

Transmission leaks only when driving


You are getting too much pressure in the system and the gasket are the place where the pressure is released.

I hope they didnt over fill it when they did the seal a few months ago..

Did the mech say what would cause the overflow ??

Maybe call a trani shop & get a 2nd opinion..
Ask them what causes a overflow..

1998 Jeep cherokee Tranny leak


The best thing to do is to jack it up(use jack stands) so you can get under it, start it up and look for the leak, from the way it sounds it should not be hard to find, look close at the trans. cooling lines they run from trans. to radiator, and also where the dip stick tube goes into the trans. And last the oil pan it could have a hole in it or the gasget is bad.

Transmission fluid leak


Transmissions can leak anywhere there is a seal, fitting or gasket. Most common leaks are at the trans pan gasket and fittings.. However, to find a leak the only way is to get under there and look. A mid sized leak will clean off road debris and leave a track. Keep in mind that all leaks run down and that while driving this can be blown towards the rear of the vehicle. If you find a suspicious area, clean it off with a rag & some solvent and run vehicle...watch that area for seepage. Also check cooling lines to radiator. Fluid coming from inside bellhousing indicates a bad front seal (requires trans removal to repair) Fluid should be (for aw4 units) Mercon, or any quality synthetic that covers mercon application.
