Oil and transmission fluid mixing and leaking from under car 99 Buick century and now car will not change gears


you need to look at the tranny cooler located in radiator that's the only way tranny fluid can get out but how its crossing over to motor oil im not sure unless you also have a motor oil cooler in the radiator.and that will cause tranny problems ,don't try to drive till you resolve these issues., my other thought is oil is leaking out back of motor and mixing with leaking tranny fluid, try draining tranny first to see if motor oil is really in tranny.

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus and want to tow it behind my motor home. Can this be down on all 4 wheels without a transmission cooler?


It cannot be towed if it is an automatic, you will need a dolly to have the front wheels of the ground and not turning if it's a auto, because the engine won't be running the oil pump in the tranny won't be supplying any oil hence it will run dry in a matter of minutes, I can't stress more if it's a auto then don't tow, have the drive wheels on a dolly so they aren't driving

Where is the dipstick for transmission oil on smartcar


No dipstick.

This is a manual transmission with a motor to work as auto transmission. Does not need any oil change , and does not need topping if there are no leaks

My 88 dodge dakota has a leak between the engine and the transmission. What could the problem be and how can I fix it?


If it is motor oil, it should match the oil on the dipstick.
If it is automatic transmission fluid, it should be sort of redish and match your "tranny" fluid on that dipstick.
If it is thicker than motor oil, it should be manual transmission oil.
Motor oil leaks from the "rear main seal".
Transmission fluid or gear oil leak from the front transmission seal.
All 3 of these can look like they are coming from about the same place, where you have said.
All three of these require you separate the motor and transmission to fix them, and that means taking the transmission out of your truck.
Pretty expensive if you pay to have it done.
If you take the " tranny" out, most shops will replace both seals (one front, engine and one rear, tranny)
Depending on how much it is leaking and other things, lots of people let it leak.
If you are using a lot of fluid, perhaps it\'s time to think about repairs.
Be blessed

How to check the transmission fluid and fill it up if low there is no dip stick for it


If this is an auto tranny the dipstick is located against the firewall just to the passenger side of the auto. If this is a standard transmission it does not have a dispstick but a plug on the side of the transmission. You remove the plug and the gear oil should be level with the hole. If not use a squeeze bottle to put 85w to 90w gear oil into the tranny.

Vw golf Mk3 VR6 gearbox/cooling system


I don't know where your leak is happening but I suspect the transmission fluid attacks rubber and may be leaking from the heater because of softened hoses.
I think the first move I would make is to buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual and spend some time researching how the transmission and cooling systems are related. The books are available at auto parts stores (or on line of course) and cost between $17-$30 US.
