The leaks could start from anywhere due to wind blowing through the engine compartment while driving. Try to trace the source and identify whether it is oil (gold/brown color), or tranny fluid (usually dark red).
head gasket? that's the top end..oil pan is probably it..either the gasket is pinched, the bolt isn't tight..or one of your seals is bad
If its oil its either gold or black and like above probably the oil pan. Transmission Fluid is generally red.
A very simplistic way to determine what the fluid is that is leaking, is to dab a small amount on the end of your finger and taste it. All four of the most common fluids (oil, tranny fluid, brake fluid, and antifreeze) have a very distinct taste and are completely different from each other.
that doesn't induce carcinogens:
Even easier way to identify fluid without ingesting it is to simply park over a piece of paper or cardboard. You can also use a white paper towel and dab it off the ground to get a decent idea what the fluid might be.
Head gaskets usually don't leak alot of oil, normally they start dumping antifreeze into the cylinders when failing. Valve covers (the part just above the head is the likely culprit there). Most higher mileage cars with oil leaks are typically the rear main seal on the crank that is failing. It is sometimes costly and others not so bad depending on the vehicles.ANSWER
LOOK AT THE COLOR OF THE OIL IF IT IS REDISH COLOR ITS TRANSMITION IF BLACK ITS FROM YOUR HEAD GASGET AND THE BEST THING TO USE WOULD BE ORGANIC SEALER UNTIL YOU HAVE ENOUGH TO COMPLETELY FIX THE PROPLEM
If it's leaking transmission fluid, could be a bad pump seal. If it's leaking engine oil, could be a bad oil filter, leaking valve cover gasket, leaking intake manifold gasket, leaking oil pressure sender, leaking distributor gasket.
Coolant lines? Shift linkage? could also be the rear or front seals leaking
Could be a gasket, an o-ring or a seal. Need more info as to where it is leaking.
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)
Where is it leaking from? Could be front or rear seal or coolant lines Did you change gasket when you changed fluid?
green fluid is engine coolant. as this is showing up near the transmission this could be leaking from the head gasket or from a freeze plug. you will just have to trace back where it is coming from remember there are freeze plugs behind transmission which are not viible while transmission is in vehicle
AnswerIt could be your boot or seal around the transmission.My 2002 passport was leaking from the front pan, the transmission has a front and rear pan and the gasket had to be replaced.
Could be either transmission pan Gasket, Axle Seals or torque convert seal, that's the seal that goes between torque convert and transmission.
The AT oil cooler is in the bottom tank of the radiator. If you are seeing oil leaking from one of the lines from and to the transmission connection could be loose.
Transmission fluid leaked out of car very fast. After hitting large rock. Could it be the transmission pan is broke? That is a possibility
Your engine may have a leaking hose connection or a leaking gasket at the water outlet. It could also be a leaking hose.
Yes, antifreeze can leak from a water pump gasket.
It depends where it's leaking from. I have had two previous cases of my truck leaking transmission fluid and both consisted of the pressure lines not being properly clipped on or a bad hose. It could be a old or faulty gasket inside the transmission box. Either way it would need replacing of the hardware. only way to fix it.
Possibly head gasket.
It could be a number of things, The most likely however is a leaking sump. Possible that its leaking from the nut if its loose or there is no washer, could be from the CV joint also. VW's are famous for valve cover gasket leaks. Oil blows though, runs down and drips from the bottom. I also had to replace the O-ring at the base of the distributor. It was causing the same thing. Bottom drip.
Could be an indication of head gasket, leaking May be due to crack / blow-hole in Oil Cooler. Could be an indication of head gasket, leaking
That depends on where it's leaking. Usually it's a seal, either one of the wheel seals or the input shaft seal (between the engine and transmission) If it's not a seal, it COULD be the pan gasket. That's an easy fix, first try to tighten it. If that doesn't work, get a new gasket, remove the pan, clean off the old gasket then put the new gasket on. But it's not JUST Saturns, it's the same for all vehicles.
try the cool line fitting from the radiator to the transmission i just had that problem on a 1994 mercury Sometimes you can leak out of the tailhousing of your transmission if the housing seal is slightly damaged
gasket wears out in time. leaking coolant is the result of a bad gasket not the cause of it.
A leaking head gasket could cause this.
Head gasket could be leaking
you might have a blown head gasket and the coolant is leaking into the cylender and the engine is burning it.
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
Head gasket could be bad
it could be coming from a valve cover gasket that is leaking
