    I have a 2002 Nissan Frontier and we lost all our transmission fluid. The truck will go in drive but not in reverse. We can drive it forward but not backward.

    i have the same thing happening. it is coming from somewhere toward the top and with the small amount of room under the car it is impossible to find the leak without getting it on a lift.

    My Nissan 300zx seems to have a great engine and accessories, but after driving it around for about 10 minutes, or 2 miles, the trany seems to give out. I think it warms up to a certain point, and the transmission gets loose or something. I can't figure it out. We have 2 people looking at it right now and they don't see a problem either. Any help?

Start vehicle,add fluid until FULL cold mark,raise vehicle in the air,and look for the point of origin of the leak.If the trans is dirty,grimey,greasey,or wet with fluid everywhere to where you can't determine the point of origin of the leak,then clean it thoroughly with spray cans of brake cleaner to degrease and clean it well.Now,start the vehicle again,let it run,raise vehicle back in the air,and LOOK with a light for the point of origin where the fluid is coming from.If you see a drop low on the trans,follow it back up,because it ran down from somewhere.Thats it.You could always have 2 and 3 minor leaks too,at the same time,so just keep that in mind.If leaking from the pan,install a new pan gasket,if leaking from a cooler line,repair the line,etc.

SOURCE: transmission fluid leak, may be slipping a gear in overdrive

OK if its the pan gasket, it wouldn't hurt to change it. probably due for a change anyhow. It may or may not help with the OD problem but fresh oil is a plus.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid leak just off Radiator

Those are your transmission cooling lines. Buy them and replace them.

When you install them, take your time...don't be in a rush.

Transmission problems


If you're losing fluid then it's due to an external transmission leak, a faulty vacuum modulator, or a leaking transmission cooler. No matter which one is behind this is needs to be repaired promptly as an automatic transmission can be damaged very very quickly due to a low fluid level.

Transmission leak


Sounds like you've got a valve hanging or you need Togo threw a relearn procedure. It should clear up in a few days. As for the leak take it back to who ever fixed it.

2006 dodge grand caravan transmission fluid low but cannot find a leak


check your rear main seal. Also try changing your trans fluid, trans filter, and your transmission pan seal. I recommend you put lucas transmission oil in it and a quart of the Lucas Stop Slip and leak sealer

Transmission fluid


You are correct to be concerned. Look and see if the transmission has any vacuum lines. If it does, check the lines by disconnecting them and see if transmission fluid is inside the lines. If there is transmission fluid present, the engine is drawing the fluid out of the transmission and burning it in the combustion chambers.

Radiator overflow- Check color of antifreeze in overflow tank. The radiator can have 2 chambers. If the chambers breach, the fluids can mix. Since the overflow can vent the excess fluids, it can provide an outlet for the trans fluid.
Leaks, most common. There should be staining and presence of oily residue. Check for lower cooling coil assembly. Some Makers use a separate cooling unit similar to a steering cooler if a 2 chamber radiator is not equipped.
You may be able to simply go to a quick change oil shop and drive over their service bay. They could check for leaks.

96 Ford Taurus GL Revving problem when stop then go


Did you check the transmission fluid again. You could have a major leak. Or reving the car up so high it started to burn the clutches in your transmission, resulting in replacing the transmission. Always check the fluid. A few dollars for fluid is better than 1500 bucks for a new tranny
