Why is my transmission fluid leaking around the seal?


If you bought a new axle and seal, it shouldn't leak. Unless they nicked the seal putting the axle. When using a used axle, it needs the rust sanded off before installing. That rust will eat up a seal.

Transmission problems


Well, the car is 20 years running on the road, one can expect gaskets and seals to start leaking. If you stop the leak and keep it full, you may be alright. But running low fluid for very long will definitely damage the transmission, so do get it fixed, and keep it full but not overfull till fixed. There aren't that many places for an automatic to leak. There are axle seals where the two front axles go into the transaxle. Fairly easy to replace. There is a gasket where the bottom fluid pan bolts to transaxle. Also fairly easy to replace. There are two fluid cooling lines from transaxle to radiator or to a small radiator-like cooler in front of radiator. Leaks can develop in the lines, at the fittings where they connect to transaxle or to the radiator. Leaks anywhere there should be fairly easy to fix. There is another seal, a front transaxle seal, and if bad, fluid will be dripping off the bottom front of the tranny where it mates to the engine. If this seal is bad, the transmission will have to be removed from vehicle to replace it. A $5 seal, but the fix requires pulling the transaxle-ouch! That is about all the places where leaks can develop-except there may be some bolted on or screwed in fittings (like the reverse light switch, for one). These fittings would have seals, O-ring seals, or gaskets that may start leaking.
If it gets low on fluid that fast, it would seem that you should be able to spot where it is leaking. Use rags and wipe off all the old fluid and dirt from the transaxle. After a drive and then parked, you may be able to see where the leak has allowed new fluid to escape. Good luck.

BAD TRANSMISSUION LEAK


Check the axle shaft seals where the two drive axles enter the transaxle. If leaking there the axle will have to be removed to replace the seal.
Look at the bottom pan of transaxle. If leaking from pan gasket, the pan will have to be removed and transmission drained to replace pan gasket.
There is a transaxle main shaft seal on the front of transaxle, hidden by the bellhousing that mounts to rear of engine.. If the shaft seal is leaking, fluid will be dripping from bottom of bellhousing, and when inspection cover is removed, fluid will be evident inside the bellhousing.
Check also the transmission fluid cooling lines, where the two lines exit the transaxle case, and go to front of car to an external cooler mounted in front of radiator, or going into a separate reservoir in the radiator.

Leaky Transmission


You would need a toolbox full of tools-wrenches, 1/2 inch drive ratchet wrench and several size sockets, one large socket for the big axle nut at the center of the wheel-possibly 30 mm, not sure. Yes, quite a number of common hand tools required for the job, because you have to remove that axle from the transaxle to replace the seal. It's not a simple job, but one that DIY'ers are always doing.
I would not rush to do it along with the pan removal. When you have the necessary tools and have consulted a repair procedure for your Taurus so you see what is involved, then you could do it. The amount of fluid you will lose when the axle is pulled out will be minimal, a quart at most and usually about a half quart. Generally, the axle removal requires the lower ball joint separated, the tie rod removed from steering knuclkle, the axle pushed out of the wheel hub and then popped out of the transaxle. The procedure varies according to make of car. But the seal replacement is a piece of cake, once you have the axle shaft out of the way.
If you register for free at autozone.com, and list your make, model, year, and engine size, you will find the procedure for the axle, and for a lot of other repairs as well. It's a great free source for DIY repairs. Good luck.

Transmission no pressure


Nope, no positives. It does sound like the pump has failed. If the stop leak didn't help seal any internal seals that may have failed, it looks like the transaxle will have to come out for repairs or another replacement.
I don't think the torque converter ever makes noise when bad.
I would think your diagnosis of a bad pump is correct, given no movement of fluid in the cooler lines. Kudos for checking the lines-cool idea, I never thought of that.

Found transmission fluid in the rediator overflow. engine is 3.0 v 6


Your transmission cooler in the radiator tank is probably leaking, A radiator shop could probably replace the cooler but if the radiator is old you should replace the whole thing.

Im leaking transmission fluid and i dont think i have coverage to repair it


Generally the trans pan is first to leak on any transmission. If the perimeter of the pan espeacially the mounting bolts are wet with red fluid change the filter and gasket. Add transmission fluid as recommended in the owners manual also
If the leak is between the engine and the trans the front pump seal or pump seals need replacement.
If leaking at the axle shafts the axle seals need replacing

Transmission fluid leak where it joins onto the


Sounds to be the front pump seal on the trans. Yes, the seal can be replaced but the trans must come out, engine stays.. Remove the torque converter with the trans. and make sure they are properly coupled when reinstalling. Good Luck Ned. I Live in Mira Loma if you neeed coacjhing.
