    I'm having a similar problem. The fluid is a yellowish tint and appears on the transmission. Is there a way to check the transmission fluid?

To find out where any leak is coming from, it's best to get an underside view...sometimes it could be harder depending on the severity of the leak. Secondly, check the fluid that is leaking. Texture, smell, and color are great ways of determining what exactly it is so you know where to look for.

What tranmission fluid do I Use for a 1987 Chysler New Yorke?

It should say right on the dipstick. I believe that year was still dexron/mercon. You would be fine using chrysler ATF+4 as it has superseded all previous Chrysler specs for trans fluid. Make sure you checke the fluid when the transmissions up to temp, on a level surface, engine running, and run through all the gears with foot on the brake right before checking the fluid level.

Transmission fluid is leaking how do i fix it

Hi Sandra:
Normally if oil or transmission fluid mixes with coolant it will turn milky looking like a milkshake. Your leak must be pretty fresh. from your description that it is coming out of the coolant overflow I am thinking you have a radiator transmission cooler leaking into the cooling system.

You will need a new radiator and possibly all the coolant hoses if they have become soft from the transmission fluid.

In most cases if your getting transmission fluid in the radiator it is cause by a bad transmission cooler that is built into the radiator and the fix is to replace the radiator.

The repair will change in price from where the leak is coming from. If the pan is leaking or the rear seal your looking at $100.00 or less. If the front seal is leaking then around $550.00. The most common leak is the pan gasket. Also if the transmission fluid and filter have not been replaced in the last 30,000 miles and the pan is leaking then I suggest doing this also why the pan is off .

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have an 89 pontiac firebird GTA with a 3.5 tuned port injection engine, my probelms are when ever i try to start the car it dies. my car also JUST TODAY started leaking out its tranmission fluid. also...

without being able to look at the car myself, it soumds like you MAY have a bad servo OR vacuum line TO the servo on the transmission (had simular probs with an old chevy truck that I had once) see if you can spot exactly where the trans oil is coming from. if it is a hose then that would have been losing vacuum to the engine making it die. if it is the servo, they are not TOO hard to replace on most makes of auto (but it may get messy as the servo has fluid behind it in the trans) if the leak seems to be coming from the engine then you may have to replace both of the parts.

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.

1999 taurus. 6 cyl OHV. Ran fine over the weekend. Parked car in driveway. Started this morning. Heard high(RPM) pitch winding sound coming from engine or tranmission. Noticed will not reverse or move into...

Check for vacuum lines going to transmission or any vacuum line under hood. It is possible an animal chewed on the lines or wires. We get a few reports of that at Fixya.

You might also look under the dash by the pedals for a vacuum leak. There are vacuum switches for parking brake release and the neutral start switch.

The clutch slave cylinder is leaking. It's not a DIY job. The transmission has to be removed to get to it.

Transmission leak

The hoses are called "transmission lines", and you are correct they do go from the transmission and connect to the radiator. Most any auto parts store should be able to order them for you, but chances are most won't have them in stock. Your best bet to find a auto parts store with them in stock would be napa. Otherwise, you local chevrolet dealer may have them in stock.
