Then it's a leak thru the case seals - the transmission will have to be taken off the car, dismantled and all the seals replaced.

My 2002 Deville has started making a whining noise when accelerating after about 35 mph. When decelerating it winds down and then stops.


check manifold gaskets for leaks, check vacuum hoses for leaks. check the transmission oil condition ( auto tranny)
if it is an auto then it may require the pan to come off and check for mechanical fault.

Tip

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.

1995 ford windstar starts right up sometimes wont move when i hit the gas it also leaks fluid from somewhere towards the front of the van i put in transmission fluid it starts driving but not for long it...


if it is a auto the fluid is transmission fluid leaking from the oil cooler at the radiator or loose hose so transmission is low on oil thats why it wont drive .have a closer look at where the oil is leaking that will help but filling it up with oil is only a very short term fix .You need a mechanic to check it out if its not a loose plug or cracked hose.

Should I fix my oil leak in my 1986 Toyota Camry 1986 4 cyl.?


On this car it's almost worth the repair cost to fix many of the common problems, they are quite reliable cars. So if your mechanic thinks the rear main engine seal is leaking, or the automatic transmission torque converter is leaking , be ready to spend some money on the labor, as both repairs require that the transmission be removed. Aside from this one repair, all other work can be done with relative ease! Keep this car, over 250 k, think about selling.

Starts fine runs fine pull in gear it goes dead


Hi Brent: I'm no mechanic but I would look for a vacuum leak. I had a old car that did this to me. Started and idled strong but you couldn't put it in gear or it would die. After weeks of various male friends looking at it one finally found the problem. Turns out it was a vacuum leak or Vacuum Modulator. I found this page online that might help... It explains how auto trans work... etc. Hope it helps.

Sounds like the rear main oil seal on your motor is leaking. In order for it to be replaced, the transmission has to be removed. Not an easy task for the backyard mechanic.

Does the trans cooler exist inside the radiator on this V6 engine/auto trans combo? I found a brown foam in my 2001 Saturn V6's coolant overflow tank. It was so thick, i could not read the coolant level. ...


hmmm..........there is a OiL COOLER tube for the transmission cooler in ur radiator, that to keep ur tranny fluid to cool down!

As u said, u checked the engine oil, and it has no decrease on oil level!

Ur right about that... better bring that to ur mechanic and evaluate the radiator, the tube inside might have been damage or corroded!

Hope the seals up ur probs!

Just bought used Jetta leaking trans fluid - can't be fixed w/o major labor?


i dont know where you live
there are many independent repair shops out there that would do the job for alot less
here is one trick i have found that work very good.
go to a professional auto parts store like a carquest or a NAPA and ask the counter person who he would recomend a independent repair shop that is familar with the VW cars
dont give up you will find a great mechanic that will help.
good luck
