How to fix transmission fluid overflow leak


Only way trans oil is leaking out of overflow is to much oil in the trans in first place. Did you add trans oil? check level when enine is operating temperature and engine idling in level ground. check 3 times to make it sure. If found overfull simply drain to proper level. If oil is in operating range than you may have trans problem that need professional care.

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.

There is no overflow on the Allison Trans, something happened when the trans got over heated, it is a good idea now to also get a trans flush as once you heat it up that bad it starts to break down the fluid.
