Question about Chrysler Pacifica

2 Answers

I noticed a spot on the pavement when walking out to my car. I took it to have the oil changed and they told me I had a leak in my transmission coolant line. I then took it to a repair shop where they replaced the clamps on the line. It still leaks so I called them back and said to fix it would be around $500. Does that sound right? I am a single mother of 4 and cant afford to be taken advantage of.

Most have a rubber line that the clamps hold to the metal line. The rubber can deteriorate letting it leak. The metal line screws into the radiator and unless the fitting in the radiator is leaking(Maybe requiring a new radiator) it shouldn't cost near that much. The metal line can be replaced easily by unscrewing the fitting.

No that does not seem right, you are being taken for a long ride ! have a friend or someone you can trust who can work on it. and go to a auto parts store if you need parts. its a lot cheaper if you do not have to take it to a dealer. have a good day !

How do I know if it is the real main seal that is leaking on my 2006 mercury milan? The oil pan gasket was just replaced and it is still leaking


The best way is to take it to a shop that can put dye in the oil and then use a black light to see where it is leaking.

TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAKING


You have a few sensors screwed into transmission,depends what type you have automatic or a stick,the best way to see is follow leak,may have to raise.But the very best way is to raise on a car lift like shops have to walk under and find and replace,plus you can see other parts that might need attention.If your Stratus needs a oil change,take to dealer and say nothing about leak,when they raise it up to change oil,they will notice your leak and follow and diagnose and figure everything out and tell you what's wrong and how much,you have the choice to let them or take home and do it yourself.

Automatic transmission fluid leak.


check for a problem oil line to the oil cooler in the radiator or loose connections at the transmission
the oil is probably running back from a different position to where the spot on the floor occurs

I own a 1998 deville that has 120,328 miles of which 664.6 are my driven miles. I was told when I purchased that it had a small oil leak. I got an oil change about 6 weeks +/- a week, after which i noticed...


Hello: There isn't any temporary repair. It is a major task to seal the oil leak, the engine has a two piece oil pan. To remove the oil pan either the transmission or engine has to be removed to accomplish the task.

HAD THE OIL CHANGED IN 2006 RENO OIL IS LEAKING ON PAVEMENT.TOOK IT BACK AND THEY SAID TIGHTENED ALL THAT THEY COULD IS STILL DOING IT


The leak is probably unrelated to the oil change, at least in a bad way. Many vehicles are poorly designed for oil changes. Oil gets on several components under the engine and could leak for a couple of days. You'll have to find the leak yourself if they are unwilling or unable to do it and you don't want another shop to look at it just yet.

Keep in mind that the older a vehicle gets, the more leaks it has. Place a piece of clean cardboard under the vehicle when you park it. Check above where you see the spot on the cardboard if it still leaks. Since the oil is traveling down, keep tracing upwards until you don't see oil leaking or seeping and you have found the location of the leak. Keep in mind as well that oil can be slung by the engine belts if you have any seals on the front of the engine leaking.

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.

Engine light came on and coolant leak


You don't want to overfill your engine with oil. I'd recomend you change your oil and put the right amount in it, because chances are, if you are that low, it was time for an oil change anyway. As for your coolant leak, check your hoses and radiator, if you don't find anything look your engine block over for antifreeze residue. Usually when your water pump wears out and starts leaking it makes a big mess.
