01 Accord coupe is leaking transmission fluid at where the cv joint and the transmission connects on both sides couple drops after parked Is this fixable by myself anyone know what is worong Thanks?
In Honda Accord
It sounds like the seals. Whether you can repair it or not depends on your ability level.

%DETAILS%%FOLLOWUPS% Pretty much you have the transmission, the lines to the cooler and that's about it. Follow what I said before. I may be wrong but is the color of your power steering fluid the same as the transmission fluid on that model? Are you monitoring the levels of both fluids? Wrong Ga…sket HUH? Clean of the potential areas. Leave cardboard under questionable area. when you see the drip follow it up to the leak. Fix the real leak and your all set. (MORE)
You have to take it loose from the front bearing then pry it out of the trans. Big Job
Transmission fluid leak can be caused by couple of things. Most common being an worn out or broken seal. The transmission seals on most cars are made from rubber or metal. Seal is exposed to extreme temperature for years and the parts moving around them will eventually cause seals to fail resu…lting fluid leak. Faulty installation of a seal can also cause a leak. The another thing that can cause a leak is, if transmission case or pan is damaged due to low ground clearance. (MORE)
Answer . \nyou could have a bad transmission pan gasket which is cheap and easy to fix yourself, or you need a new one.. Answer . Besides the transmission pan gasket, there are other places the transmission could be leaking from:\nINPUT SHAFT: fluid would be coming out form the front of the t…ranny close to the engine.\nOUTPUT SHAFTS: fluid would be noticed directly below the driveshaft where it connects to the tranny or a rear-wheel-drive vehicle or the left and right axleshaft of front-wheel-drive vehicles.\nOTHER: tailhousing gasket, speedometer gear input seal, shifter housing seal/gasket, and any other mating surface which has a gasket or seal in it depending on particular vehicle.

The pan gasket could be leaking ( tighten mounting bolts or replace gasket ) Filler pipe rubber seal , Transmission oil lines ( tighten , replace ) Speedometer connector ( replace o-ring ) Some makes have a transmission vent pipe ( transmission over filled ) Output shaft seal damaged (replace)
Find the leak, figure out if you can fix it, take the car to a garage. How bad it is leaking? You certainly don't want to run a car with low transmission fluid as it will surely do internal damage. Most common leak areas are at the pan gasket or the transmission cooler lines that go to the radiato…r. Next most common areas are at the output shaft seals and around sensors or plugs on the transmission. If you replace any cooler lines with hose, make sure you use transmission hose. This will handle the pressure and the chemical resistance that other hoses will not stand up to. Also be sure to KNOW what transmission fluid is needed. One size does not fit all! (MORE)
Hi I just decided to replace the half shafts from a 93 Toyota Camry. I struggled for a day with the driver side half shaft and finaly got the dumb thing off by buying a very ridgid prybar from sears, jamming it under shaft near the trans and bashing with a big sledge hammer. Pow! and it was free! Th…e passenger side is still a challenge. I removed the snap ring and lock polt but it won't move. I thinking of using a tourch to free the bearing, but will ask a friend first. Answer Hi again,I just called a friend re: the passenger side half drive shaft. I got a brass punch and positioned it against the inner CV joint next to the bearing in the bracket. He said to use a ballpeen hammer to drive the bearing out of the bracket by using the punch against the inner joint. (don't hit the bearing)After some pounding with the ballpeen, I decided to bring out the "big gun." A few hits with the sledge hammer got the bearing free from the bracket. I cleaned the bracket with a wire brush dremmel and the rest of the install was easy. (MORE)
Answer . It's usually much more inexpensive to replace the entire drive shaft than to repair a worn cv joint. The new drive shaft will come with new cv joints and new boots.
Does anyone knows that where is drain plug for transmission fluid located on 2003 Honda odyssey please don't reply with answer to buy manual thanks aps?
There is NOT a pan for this transmission, but there is a drain plug for the transmission. It is located on the bottom of the transaxle, just to the driver's side of center and can be identified by looking for the round head with a square in the middle. It is removed by placing a 3/8" drive wrench lo…osely into the square head and turning counter clockwise. NOTE: Not all of the transmission fluid will be drained. To do a complete change, drain out what will drain and replace with new fluid every 1,000 miles three times, then increase the interval to every 15,000 miles. Since only about 1/3 of the fluid will drain out, the theory is that by doing that once every 1,000 miles, after 3,000 miles all of the fluid will be new. The Haynes manual has the best instructions for this simple procedure. Be sure to measure how much fluid is removed so as to replace with that exact amount of fluid. If the recall has been completed on the transmission, you will be adding through the transmission line on the top of the transmission. The filter does not need to be serviced and it is imperative to use the Honda ATF Z1 fluid. The original design had a flawed oiler assembly for second gear (hence the recall) so it is best to baby these transmissions. Answer Many automatic transmission pans do not have drain plugs; You will need to slowly drop the pan and allow the fluid to drain into LARGE pan. Answer This transmission has no drain plug. The filter is also not serviceable. To get to the filter the transmission must be removed and dissembled. In other words the filter is a lifetime filter. You can just remove the fluid line from the radiator and drain the transmission with the trans pump. Warning! Be sure and use only Honda ATF Z1 fluid and nothing else. Use anything else and your transmission will not shift properly. Some quick lube shops will tell you they have a substitute that works, but do not believe it. Insist on Honda Z1 fluid. ANSWER: You need a 3/8 ratchet to remove the drain bolt. standing from the back of the car it is to the left of the transmission on the lower part of the case. it is the only bolt thatthe head of a 3/8 ratchet will fit into. when you remove it clean the drain bolt offfrom the metallic parts and dirt and change the crush washer then use the same ratchet to tighten it.

You removed the cv joints on your 1991 ford escort gt 1.8l manual transmission and fluid poured out you assume transmission fluid how do you check the transmission fluid level and how do you add fluid?
Answer . QUOTE::::On the side of the transmission there will be a plug. remove the plug and check the fluid level. If fluid pours out when you remove it, that means the transmission is full.. if not, add fluid through this hole till it pours out.. This information is completely wrong!. There is… no fill plug on the escort GT manual trans.. the fill hole and level check are the speed sensor... remove the 10mm bolt twist and pull up the speed sensor, re-fill, and if the plastic gear on the speed sensor is wet, it is full.

You leave a mess everywhere you park, When the fluid level drops below the add line, the transmission will not perform correctly, Continued use after the fluid level has dropped below the add line will shorten the life span of the transmission,
Answer . \nNO, THIS IS NOT NORMAL. EITHER THE PAN GASKET IS LEAKING, OR THERE IS A SEAL LEAKING. THE PAN GASKET IS NOT A BIG DEAL IF YOU HAVE SOME MECHANICAL SKILLS. THE SEAL IS A DIFFERENT STORY. I HAVE REPLACED PAN GASKETS ON 4 CHRYSLER PRODUCT VANS OVER THE YEARS AND IT IS NOT DIFFICULT.
Answer . I belive there is a snap ring one the end of the axle that keeps it in. On the end that goes into the transmission, about a quarter of an inch from the end there should be a groove in the axle. If there is, there should be a ring in it.
Answer . \nWhere is it leaking from? Could be front or rear seal or coolant lines\nDid you change gasket when you changed fluid?
Transmission is sealed I learned from a mechanic that my 1997 Isuzu Rodeo's transmission was sealed and that no fluid could be added to it by me. I suspect, from this information, that a person could not determine if the transmission fluid is low without unsealing the transmission. Dipstick …Some automatic transmissions have a dipstick, usually required to be checked when the car is warm. Usually towards the back of the engine compartment. "Feel it" You may also be able to "feel it". If the car takes time to change from neutral/park to drive, or excessive revving is required to get the vehicle moving, this may indicate low transmission fluid. (MORE)
Answer . Cat litter if there is a lot to clean up. Let it sit for a day. Anything left can be cleaned with most anything, dishwashing detergent may break it up better than a spray cleaner.
where do you add the transmission fluid in a 1996 Honda accord 4 cylinder Answer where do you add the transmission fluid in a 1996 Honda accord 4 cylinder
Must use Honda transmission fluid. Go to your local dealer for the correct fluid. Answer: Tell us what year, what model of Honda do you have? Consult your owner's manual. As specified by the factory, many older Hondas use regular Dexron fluid which is available at any auto parts store.
Answer . Sometimes when a vehicle is stored for aperiod of time transmission seals shrink and start to leak from lack of use
Answer . Coolant? Bad radiator. Radiator has a separate cooling tank (usually at the side or bottom of radiator) for transmission fluid. At times this tank ruptures allowing coolant to get into transmission. Most times causing a transmission failure.
A transmission leak should be viewed as a potentially serious andcostly mechanical condition if left undiagnosed or repaired.Consequences include automatic transmission failure, risk of fire,and environmental contamination through the leak itself.
Transmission leaks occur for several reasons. Below you'll find more about the cause of those leaks, and some ways to stop them. The best way of all is to physically replace the leaking seals, but it is usually an expensive repair job. Reason 1 - Acid impregnates rubbery seals, and this causes s…eals to shrink, harden, and leak. There is lots of sulfur in transmission fluid - and motor oil, for that matter. Some of the additives in those fluids are there to neutralize acids that form; from humidity that collects in among the fluid and oils. Moisture, plus sulfur, plus heat makes sulfuric acid - which, with heat tightens the rubbery stuff in seals - causing the leak. Reason 2 - Seal hardening wears a grove in the shaft it is surrounding. This causes a space for fluid to leak out. Those are the two reasons and causes of engine, transmission, a/c compressors, water pumps, axles, and power steering seal leaks. Most Stop leaks work because the solvent - in the additive swells the seal, and the leak stops. The swelling may not stop! There are two bad things with solvents in any fluid or oil: 1- They make the seal gummy and weak. This often restarts the leak as the seal disintegrates - or the solvent evaporates - and shrinking occurs again. There are internal seals - in engines, transmissions and power steering units. It is not a good ideal to make those seals spongy. They need to be tough. 2- Solvents destroy lubricity. This increases friction and friction drag - and triples the wear out speed. That does not sound to good for the engine or transmission to me! Those are reasons why you should not trust solvent-type stop leaks. You can tell they are solvents by the look of being clear, and very watery - not oily. Better Stop leaks. Several companies make good 'stop leak' products that do not contain solvents. They work by neutralizing acids and by an ingredient called a friction modifier. These ingredients produce a controlled swell and stop seal and gasket leaks permanently. Friction Modifiers also condition piston, bearing, valves, and gear surfaces by changing them from wear-roughen, and fast wearing, to smooth and slow wearing. That's good! Some people have used a brand of stop leaks is not a solvent and also contains friction modifiers. They have a beneficial lubricating value to restore a seals elasticity.

I would say its a bad radiator are you sure its tranny fluid and not motor oil, in which case you could have a blown head gasket? **correct answer** there should be a transmission cooler that allows transmission fluid to flow through your rad at some point, these lines, when they break, will let …transmission fluid into your rad, it also lets coolant into the transmission, which can destroy your transmission.

chances are if your boot was ripped on your cv its usually toast and the bearings can be put back in and it be rebuilt but if dirt got into it from a torn boot its usually not worth the hassle of rebuilding just buy a new one
You did not say which U-joint but with the fluid description we can assume it is from where the drive shaft exits the Xfer case. There is a seal around the shaft that wears & needs to be replaced. This is the most likely cause of the leak. The clear fluid is the Xfer case lube. If you are loosing tr…ansmission fluid also, you have 2 problems. The 2 fluids should not mix, but you might be loosing trans fluid from above & it is getting blown back by the wind as you travel. (MORE)
Loose transmission lines, blown torque convertor seal ,dried out pan gasket. where the leak is would help description of faul . i,e the front of the of tranny at the engine tranny mating surface or under the unioit itself or out of the cooler lines.
Transmission fluid can leak from many places. It could leak fromthe actual transmission itself, or any of the tubing that goes fromthe transmission to other parts of the car.
I removed cv joint on 1988 Ford Laser manual transmission fluid poured out how do you check fluid level and how do you add?
you need to pull the speedo cable out from the gearbox and if you clean around were the speedo cable goes in you will see a picture of the gear on the end of the cable this diagram will show were the full line is on the gear also make sure it is manual trans oil because some of the lasers run atf in… the manual box (MORE)
Depends on the model, Most of the time if the fluid is running down the rear of the trans and dripping off,it can be fluid coming from the vent. This is usually caused by High fluid level,Low fluid level,or a plugged cooler. Allisontech
my explore drives fine but i have to add tranny fluid every 4 blocks or it wont move < If you write in this part, the computer assumes the question has been answered- caught yours by chance. Obviously, you have a leak in your transmission. A couple of common spots would be the pan of the transmissio…n, and lines that carry transmission fluid to the radiator. Those small lines are needed to help cool transmission fluid, and are easily damaged or worn. A shop should be able to find the leak in a couple of minutes with the vehicle up on a lift. (MORE)
No it is not good for transmission fluid to leak into the engine. More information is needed to give even an educated guess why this is happening. The car must be older, or have a modulator valve in transmission pan and diaphragm is bad on the vacuum line.
Check the owner's manual for the vehicle, and follow the manufacturers suggestions. If you don't have a manual, contact a qualified auto mechanic and listen to him.
\nActually it is the continuously variable transmission (CVT). Unlike traditional automatic transmissions, continuously variable transmissions don't have a gearbox with a set number of gears, which means they don't have interlocking toothed wheels. The most common type of CVT operates on an ingeniou…s pulley system that allows an infinite variability between highest and lowest gears with no discrete steps or shifts. This is all done with pulleys and not with gears although the ratio does change just like in a regular transmission. Click the link. (MORE)
Yes it most certainly can. On older Rear wheel drive transmissions, namely Ford C4 transmissions, there is a vent at at the very top of the case. If you try and fill the transmission while it is idle (no moving parts inside, like on a test stand or in your car that is turned off) you can easily fill… the case and have the fluid start to overflow. Tjhe proper technique is to fill the transmission when the car is IDLING and in D or N. Park may not allow the torque convertor to fill and this is where the majority of AT fluid is stored. So if you are in P and the motor is turned off, the fluid may bypass filling the Torque convertor and end up coming out the top vent. On modern FWD transmissions, you fill the AT through the dipstick while in the position the dipstick says to test in, ie. D or N. When doing a pan gasket or filter change, it may take only 2 quarts to top off as you are not draining the convertor. It is also bad to overfill a modern AT as it may cause foaming or cavitation of the fluid, and that causes slippage, excess wear on the actuator pistons or servo's and mainly the ability to remove heat from the transmission, the prime enemy of an AT.

Usually automatic transmission fluid is a reddish color. If you see red fluid on your driveway, then you probably have a transmission leak.
it could be couple of things depending on where its leaking from also when u change a transmission fluid u r suppose 2 change the gasket and the filter if u didn't that might be ur problem but if u did then check the following 1) the bolts might be loose but dont tightened it too much 2) the transmi…ssion might be overfilled 3) the surface of the transmission pan might have been damaged 4) if u used a sealant to make a gasket make sure its the correct sealant..........and like i said it all depends on where its leaking from (MORE)
Take it to a trusted repair shop, and stay there and watch what they do to fix it, and to make sure they won't steal anything from your car, break anything and have you pay them to fix it back up, or anything sleezy.
That will vary greatly depending on the type of warranty, the cause of the leak, and the type of car. If you think a dealer is not honoring a warranty you might want to call the customer service phone number listed in your owners manual.
Can cv joints cause an automatic transmission to stop pulling periodiclly then pull normally sometimes it grinds when you go from drive to park?
Not likely. This sounds like a transmission about to fully fail. You have this listed as a stalling problem. Does the vehicle stall as well? If it is an early 90's to early 2000's Chrysler product, then the transmission is almost certainly the problem. there are other vehicles that have transmission… problems, but the Chrysler products of that era are particularly likely to lose transmissions. You can pull the transmission dipstick, & see if the fluid is discolored or smells burned. These checks will not always show up in a failed transmission, but are likely. If you find that it is a failed transmission, do not buy one from a junk yard, you need to replace it with a rebuilt from a reputable dealer. If yours is not too far gone it can be rebuilt, but the problem was with a seal design in most of these, therefore it must be fixed, another factory transmission will only have the same problem. You can ask at your local dealership, if it is a recurring problem transmission, they will know a reputable rebuild shop. (MORE)
They have transmission lube. It is normally a heavy weight oil but in some cases can be A/T fluid.
on the left side (driver side) you have those transmission line the go in the radiator, the bottom one tends to rust alot.
If its a Dodge automatic transmission it more than likely won't shift out of 1st gear if its a quart or more lower, otherwise, it will slip like on any other car! Actually, you read the marks on the dipstick.
Yes. If you do not want a big mess, I would suggest draining the tranny fuild before pulling out the half-shafts (axles)
The output shaft seal has failed and transmission fluid is leaking by, and that would explain the transmission fluid appearing there.
Common causes of transmission fluid leaks: . Worn Transmission Pan Seals . Worn Rear Main Seal . Cracked Transmission Fluid Line . Leaky Torque Converter . Loose Transmission Pan Bolts .
Depending wether the line going in has an o-ring or if it is just threaded you will either need to replace the o-ring or use a pipe thread compound to seal the fitting.
the pump seal has worn out and possibly cracked letting fluid leak past it into the bell housing and causing it to leak from the front. new seal should be about $15-30 and you tube has videos to show the replacement procedure
Cracked radiator end caps since the tranny fluid runs goes threw the caps for cooling that is the only way tranny fluid can get in the radiator
If you aren't moving and it is making the noise, it may be the transmission or engine. if you are moving and it makes it, it could be a joint or a worn disc brake. If you aren't moving it is definitely not a joint.
\n. There are a number of possibilities such as seals, gaskets and o-rings. You will have to try to pin point the area it is coming from then post another question.
