I need to replace my transmission cooler lines on my 1995 GMC Jimmy is there just the bolts that hold them to the transmission and radiator or do I have to lift up on the motor or is there clamps ?

All of the transmission fluid can leak out. The cooling lines are there to cool the tranny fluid, and it is circulated through the radiator by means of a pump. If a line is leaking, the pump will just empty the fluid out through the leak. The lines are usually just held in place by clamps to keep them from chafing through against the body or chassis, so replacing them should be quite an easy job. Just undo the bolts that hold them to the box and the radiator, undo however many clamps hold them in place, and reverse the procedure with new pipes.

more often than not a leak is in the cooling system,either a hose,
or a steel line.Sounds like it must pretty badly,I would put maybe 2 quarts of fluid in it,start it and just watch.

I have a 87 5 speed pathfinder and the gears started to go on the transmission . now the transmision wont go into any gear.

Hi Robert,I have 85 Nissan 4x4,know these Nissan's very well,you stated your clutch fluid in reservoir was empty,which means your clutch slave cylinder is bad and leaking.It's located on the side of transmission with 2 bolts holding it on,may have fluid on it,they use brake fluid.Here's a guide on how to replace,here's the part,very easy to replace.You can fill up with fluid and bleed to get you where you need to go,will hold up temporary,best to get a bleeder kit at Autozone to bleed.

What would cause a2001 ford windstar to empty its transmission fluid every now and then

check for a leaking pan gasket, a hole in pan, or a bad drain plug. good-day ! check front transmission pan seal. if bad it will leak and not hold back fluid when transmission is hot.

The cylinder was empty this morning in the 1990 pathfinder for the clutch, pedal went to floor, filled master cylinder and holding fluid but pedal is still on floor. What to do....

you need to inspect the clutch hydraulic system to look for a leak.check in the truck were the master cylinder bolts to the firewall as if the master is leaking out the back it will show up the leak in this area.check around the master under the hood to see if there are signs of it leaking.check at the transmission were the slave cylinder is as this is another place they leak.if you have to fill the master because its empty there is a leak also may need the clutch replaced as the slave cylinder moves out to adjust for wear of the clutch which will lower the fluid level but not cause it to be will have to bleed the clutch system at the slave cylinder,there should be a bleeder screw to do this.if you find the leak in the clutch system you will have to replace the system as some come complete master lines and slave.some come with just the slave,lines,master as separate components.

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.

When in reverse before it goes it jumps and also at 3 rpm's it jumps then goes

What you're describing is hard shift-shock. Its a symptom of old transmission fluid, or a transmission fluid leak, causing an empty transmission. Don't drive your car til you check the transmission fluid level, and change it if it's dark-looking.

How many quarts of transmission fluid does a 2001

If the leak is not to bad then they do sell a transmission leak stopper. Ask at the auto parts store. If the leak is real bad then done waste your hard earned cash. You will need to find and fix the leak. You should do this any ways. But in the mean time to check the tranny fluid and I am assuming it is an auotmatic? Then you need to put the emergency brake on and stick it in neutral. Then start the engine and then check the dip stick.Remember this important tip. The dip stick on an automatic transmission is measured in pints and not quarts unlike the oil dip stick.
If the tranny dip stick is down one notch then add just a pint to bring it to the full mark. If no fluid is presant on the stick you can safely add 3/4 of a quart and then recheck. To add the fluid you will need to shut the engine off and then restart it to recheck it. The torque converter holds 90 percent of the tranny fluid and it takes quite a bit. Some vehicles it takes 8 quarts just for the converter to get full. Yours should only hold maybe 6 but thats a guess so you may want to ask the parts store guy to look it up for you. You would not be completely empty if it drives though. So follow my info above and get back to me if you need more help. Like when you find the leak. Good Luck, The Raz
