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?
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 po…wer steering fluid the same as the transmission fluid on that model? Are you monitoring the levels of both fluids? Wrong Gasket 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.
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 resulting 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.
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 su…rely do internal damage. Most common leak areas are at the pan gasket or the transmission cooler lines that go to the radiator. 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!
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 dro…pped 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.
A transmission leak should be viewed as a potentially serious andcostly mechanical condition if left undiagnosed or repaired.Consequences include automatic transmission failur…e, risk of fire,and environmental contamination through the leak itself.
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 transmission 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.
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.
tranny cooler lines or tranny cooler blew up inside rad
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 y…ours by chance. Obviously, you have a leak in your transmission. A couple of common spots would be the pan of the transmission, 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.
on the left side (driver side) you have those transmission line the go in the radiator, the bottom one tends to rust alot.
Yes. If you do not want a big mess, I would suggest draining the tranny fuild before pulling out the half-shafts (axles)
In Transmission Fluid
Some have an internal transmission cooler & extra small internal radiator for that purpose.
In Transmissions and Drivetrains
fluid is a lubricant of transmission
In Transmission Fluid
The better question is what is leaking transmission fluid?
In American Cars
The transmission will have to be disassembled.
In Cars & Vehicles
\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.
