Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
Hi, my name is John I will do my best to assist you.
Based on your description, this is my advice.
These are the locations where the Transaxle can leak in order from most, to least likely.
Look for evidence of leaks where the axle shafts enter the Transaxle. If the axle seals are leaking it is a big project to replace them.
Sometimes leak stop additive products can slow leaks down, or stop them.
It is unlikely that the pump seal is leaking, but if it is it would leak worse while driving and fluid would blow back and coat the under carriage. You would also typically see evidence of a stream of fluid running out the bottom of the bell housing. The Transaxle has to be removed to replace the pump seal.
If you have more specific questions please post comments to this thread and I will endeavor to monitor new activity and respond as soon as possible. I recommend that you "bookmark", or "add to favorites" this page for your convenience.
