Your rear main engine seal is leaking. It's a big job to change it, requiring removal of the transmission.

Troubleshooting oil leaks on Nissan Altima


    Your Altima uses a variety of different oils to lubricate various components. Normally, these oils won't leak. But when you do find a leak, you will almost always need to have extensive work done on your Altima to correct the problem. However, before you can replace anything, you need to know what kind of oil it is
    Check for brown or black oil leaking on the ground or on the side of the engine. This is engine oil. It lubricates critical engine components. A leak means that an engine seal has failed and needs to be replaced

    Check for red oil. Red oil is trans fluid. On your Altima, it most likely means that you have a rear main seal on the transmission that has failed. However, any seal on the transmission is possible. Transmission leaks need to be fixed immediately. A transmission can fail catastrophically in 20 minutes of driving if there is insufficient oil in the transmission

    Check for amber or brown oil leaking from your trans. This is transmission gear oil found only on the manual version of the Nissan Altima.

Power steering fluid leaking into engine oil sump, even while stationary


PS fluid cannot possibly leak into the engine oil. They are completely separate systems isolated from one another.

The only fluid that can leak into the engine oil is radiator coolant via a crack in the engine block or engine head or via a damaged head gasket.

On cars with automatic transmissions, there is normally also a separate circuit for cooling the transmission fluid built into the radiator. The oil from the transmission is pumped by the transmission through a second heat exchanger inside the radiator.
This is a separate system but if there is a crack in the radiator where the transmission fluid is cooled it is possible for auto transmission fluid to get into the radiator coolant via a crack in the right area. If auto transmission fluid has got into the coolant an inspection of the coolant will show it.

Camry csi 2000 oil leak between engine and transmission


Lots of Camrys do this.

The oil will typically leak from the rear main bearing seal between engine and transmission, but that will appear at the bottom of the joint line, and will not reach the exhaust. This leak is expensive to fix and is usually left as is.

A leak from the cam cover gasket can drip into the exhaust.

The other typical leak is from the distributor shaft o-ring seal. This appears at the top of the join line between engine and trans, and can blow back onto the exhaust.

Can engine oil leak into transmission on toyota corolla 1989


Sounds like you need to get your transmission serviced as the darkened color is a sign of deteroration. As for oil to somehow make it into the transmission you would need one serious oil leak and the grommet around the tranmission dipstick would have to be pretty much gone for oil to somehow make it into the housing. Needless to say I've never seen it happen.

Possible transmission oil leak


absorb the frluid into a white paper towell ... if it is red in color then its transmission fluid .... if its clear or brown then its likely engine oil ... if the transmission is leaking a little then there are additives that can be put in the transmission to soften the seals .. that will often fix small seal leaks ...if the leak is slight and not damaging driveways then its not likely to cause major trouble as long as you keep your eye on the transmission fluid level .. ... if its engine oil then you could have a leaking valve cover gasket, oil pressure sending unit (sensor) ... or it could be jjust from spills as oil is changed or added .

Fluid leak from the seal between the transmission and engine about a drip every 5 seconds when running


would suspect that it is a rear main oil seal in the engine...not good and costly to repair since the engine and transmission need to be seperated for a 10 dollar part. is it oil that is leaking?
