If a 1994 Topaz V-6 automatic just recently had the pan gasket and filter changed but is still leaking transmission fluid where else could it be leaking from?

Sometimes you can leak out of the tailhousing of your transmission if the housing seal is slightly damaged

There are several things that can cause your 1986 Nissan 300 automatic transmission to send you a start leaking fluid the most common cause is a blown seal in the front of the transmission. There is a seal in the rear of the transmission. The transmission pan gasket can be leaking.

Replace the gasket on the transmission pan and insect the seals on the transmission where your driveshafts come out

if you have an automatic transmission there should be cooling lines going to the radiator to cool the transmission fluid the lines could be leaking or the tank could be leaking

Usually automatic transmission fluid is a reddish color. If you see red fluid on your driveway, then you probably have a transmission leak.

Failed speed sensors, leaking cooler lines, or a leaking solenoid pack.

User Avatar

That's automatic transmission fluid , or power steering fluid , so it would depend on where it is leaking from

User Avatar

Where is it leaking from? Could be front or rear seal or coolant lines Did you change gasket when you changed fluid?

The better question is what is leaking transmission fluid?

User Avatar

Because your transmission has a seal that is leaking.

There is no automatic transmission drain plug. To drain the fluid you have to drop the pan. Be sure to replace the filter at the same time, it is located under the pan.

i was driving my Toyota tacoma 2006 and start spilling oil iwas 30 miles far from the nearest town so i tried to add some fluid to my automatic transmission but there is no way so my transmission is burned out

Sounds like automatic transmission fluid. I would be concerned if it was mine.

The automatic transmission has a vent tube. If the transmission is overfilled or gets water in it , the transmission may appear to be leaking tranny fluid after the transmission has warmed up from driving because the tranny fluid expands.

User Avatar

you probably have a gasket leak. or worst possiblility is a crack pan. In either case take it in and have the tranny looked at. When was the last time you had you transmission oil changed? Did it start after it was changed? Possibly if you haven't had it changed in 50,000 miles take it in and they can change the fluid and usually replace the gasket. This may stop it from leaking.

Sounds like automatic transmission fluid ( If the transmission has been overfilled or has got water in it once the transmission is warmed up the fluid expands and can come out the vent tube ) or it can be a leak ( the transfer case for the AWD system and the Control Trac 4x4 system also has automatic transmission fluid inside it and the power steering system also uses automatic transmission fluid )

hi, blown head gasket, cracked head or block or automatic transmission oil cooler in radiator leaking

User Avatar

Sounds like front pump seal if automatic-very common

Many of the Saturn L series automatic transmissions do not have a dipstick. They are the "new breed" of transmissions that are SUPPOSED to be trouble free. When you take it in to have the transmission serviced they will make sure it is filled and not leaking. Other than that, follow the instructions in the owners manual and have the transmission serviced (oil and filter changed) according to the schedule in the book.

User Avatar

There isn't any way to add or check transmission fluid. The transmission is sealed. Look in your owners book to locate transmission, if there is no leaking then it is fine. You can always call a VW dealership if you are not satisfied with this answer.

My transmission guy informed me that Nissan Pathfinders do not have a drain plug, that they are a self-contained unit. If you are leaking fluid, your seals need to be replaced

User Avatar

The output shaft seal has failed and transmission fluid is leaking by, and that would explain the transmission fluid appearing there.
