The oil leakage should have been fixed properly - by identifying the cause and fixing it . Because this hasn't been done the syncros have been damaged by the lack of oil - the gearbox will have to be taken off the car, completely dismantled and remanufactured to fix the extensive damage it has got. A very complex job that only a good repair shop will be able to do.

Autotransmission not working at all in Ford mondeo 2.0 2006


of course you can still hear the electrical operation of the solenoids when you select gears. the level is definitely not the problem. there may be an issue with either the transaxle or the torque converter. the fluid drop on starting is normal and a good sign because the pump is working. the valve body may be malfunctioning as well. an OBD2 scantool will tell you alot as well.

1999 ford Taurus shifting hard pulled over and would not go into gear. There is a metal line at the front left that is loose and dripping fluid..could the fix be that simple?


No,this problems are very hard to fixed.The inter chamber of the car transmission gears shift and parts are cracks or damages very badly to caused to have oil leakages to the car frame or to the ground.Must have the professional transmission specialist to fixed transmission parts and changes gears and parts.Tries Auto mechanics places that have transmission specialist like AMGO or PEPBOY for example.

Leaking at front of transmission


Hi Clifford, Any leakage from the front, or for that matter the rear of a transmission is a big job! The leakage if its from the transmission, will probably be behind the torque converter if the vehicle is automatic, or behind the clutch release bearing on a manual box. If the vehicle is consuming engine oil the leakage may well be from the rear crankshaft seal, which is situated behind the flywheel. If you need to remove the flywheel, keep in mind that the bolts are tightened to a specified torque which must be adhered to when refitting. Wherever the leakage is from the removal of the gear box is required. Regards John

Hi! I have a ford mondeo automatic 2002 model. It looses power every time it changes gears especially from gear 2 to gear 3. The maximum speed that it does now is 40 km/hr but it starts well. Please help


HI,your ford may have gear problem which is common on ford mondeo,first check the gear oil if its reddish then your oil is ok and if its burnt like brown colour then you should change the gear oil as well the gear oil filter.

Water in passenger footwell of ford mondeo zetec 2001.


I had the same problem. Take note of black plastic trim piece that runs along the bottom of the windshield. On the passenger side there is a pan type attachment to this piece of trim; it can become detached from the trim. In this case it needs to be positioned under the lower lip of the windshield.
