Question about 1995 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

My transmission is leaking, they replaced the seal last week, now its leaking again. I tried checking the level, and it says dont add if the fluid is up to the 2 holes on cold or the hole under the hot, I turned car on and checked and it was up to the botton hole under hot, do I need to let the car run for a certain amount of time for it to show anything on the hot? Also when I cut car off, I put a piece of paper under the car and it was still leaking, how much fluid does a transmission hold.Help,

Hello your neon will hold up to 7.5 letters when completely drained however the only way to check your transmission fluid is when your engine has reached full operation temperature.The transmission fluid level rises when hot so adding to the fluid cold is NOT a good thing to do.Sounds like your not empty so i would consider returning the car back to the person who repaired it and bring it to the attention repair is still leaking bring you paper with you.

Where do one add auto transmision oil to a jeep grand cherokee 3.7l petrol model and what type do one use


The transmission on this truck is sealer, it doesn't have a fill tube or dipstick. To add fluid requires a scanner be hooked up to monitor fluid temperature and a special fill port used under the truck to add fluid.

Wont shift out of 1st does mean my tranny is blown or is this fixable


if automatic - check first fluid level in the transmission - this usually suggest low fluid level.

check for leaks on both ends of transmission and around any joints on the transmission including corks, mounts and sensors. tighten up if necessary, change gaskets or seals if necessary. drain the fluid if you remove the pan and watch for little springs popping out...

start the car, run it for 15min at idle, shifting few times to gear and back to park. check fluid level while engine is running. add fluid as needed, add about half cup at a time, allow to run for 1 or 2min and check again for level repeat till you reach half mark. drive the car and check if gears engage, if so - check the fluid and add again if necessary.

if this do not solve the problem, service maybe required... instruction how to do that - exceed the scope of this little space. beside, you did not provided any info, in questions like that - manufacturer, model and year are helpful...

in manual - this suggest shifter or similar problem asking for money... and lots of it...

if you find this little intro helpful - do not forget to vote...

Notice on driveway tranmission fluid leaking check t f top off also first gear hard shift took to DOBBS HAD CHECK OUT WAS TOLD tranmission seal on back side was leaking bad also oil pan gasket leaking...


u get a second look your self by looking at the transmission u dont have to take anything apart to find the leak the oil pan is easy so check that one first if u see any fluid on or around the pan then the seal is shot that dont mean the tranny will burn up, just keep an eye on the fluid level second the rear transmission seal is located at the back of the tranny where the rear drive shaft slips into the transmission if you notice fluid around there and on the drive shaft thats leaking also but like i said just because u have a few minor leaks dont mean the tranny will blow up just as long as you keep an eye on the fluid level. do your home work and find a good transmission shop that will gaureentee the there work at a decent price.

I have a Japanese spec 2006 rav-4 there is no dipstick fot the transmission nor a hole in which to insert transmission fluid. how do i check the fluid level? and how do i insert transmission fluid?


If it is a standard transmission then there is a plug on the side of the transmission that has to be taken out and then you stick your finger straight in, don't bend it and see if you can feel any oil. If not then bend your finger just a little until you feel some oil and then you have to put oil in through the same hole until it starts to leak out and then put the plug back in.

WHERE DOES THE TRANSMISSION FLUID GO


Add transmission fluid down the transmission dip stick tube. Check on the fluid level whilst the engine is running at idle and the car is in park. Add extra fluid 500ml at time until it is back to the correct level. Having to top up the fluid frequently indicates a leak: prop shaft seal, impeller seal, speedo cable junction or the cooling pipe unions.

Im leaking transmission fluid and i dont think i have coverage to repair it


Generally the trans pan is first to leak on any transmission. If the perimeter of the pan espeacially the mounting bolts are wet with red fluid change the filter and gasket. Add transmission fluid as recommended in the owners manual also
If the leak is between the engine and the trans the front pump seal or pump seals need replacement.
If leaking at the axle shafts the axle seals need replacing
