Transmission Leaking Fluid
Posted 19 November 2008 - 11:08 PM
I'm not the most knowledgeable when it comes to cars, but I do try my best. Upon a quick inspection of me just looking at it from under the car, I don't see anywhere where it could be leaking from, but at the same time I am having trouble finding a source photo of what the transaxle should look like when it's new. My Haynes manual only has certain shots, you know.
Would anyone know what that might sound like to them? I can take stuff apart and put it together, and I can work with direction easily, but as it is now I'm just blindly looking at it from as many angels as I can going "wtf?"
any help would be mega appreciated!

It could be a number of things, so you want to get it as clean as possible to see where it is coming from. You have seals, hoses, gaskets, even the bottom of the funnel for the dip stick could be it.

more then 75% of the time if you have a trans leak, its the axle seal's. and there like $6 bux. just time consuming pulling the axles to replace them. but still a very easy job, even for a beginner.

Hello, I'm new to the forum, but am having this same issue as well. In my case it's a 2 part problem. The first part was a rotted transmission line. That was a fairly simple repair. Next up, however, both output shaft seals are leaking. I was under the vehicle with a mechanic and saw the obvious leaks, but he claims the tranny needs to be dropped out and the seals need to be changed from the inside. Huh?! Is there any truth to that or is it as simple as pulling the shafts and replacing the seals (as logic would dictate)?
There is a bushing inside the transmission that requires a tear-down, but the seals, as you stated, pop right out when you simply remove the axles.
In any event, in this case, my money is on the trans cooler [rubber] hoses.
