If you hit a rock or something else in the road, you may damage your transmission pan. If you scrape it hard enough, you can cause a leak.
When a transmission has an internal leak, the fluid pressure can drop and not flow to the proper valves. This can cause improper shifting, as well as cause transmission damage.
Yes water cause leaking
Well a leak in the tubing, maybe it has corroded away?
No its not possible for motor oil to leak into any transmission, that are not directly connected to each other for fluid transfer. they're only attached by a flywheel or in autos case a flexplate.... It is possible for the engine oil to leak at the rear seal into the transmission, but it will leak to the ground through a hole in the bottom of the transmission made for this purpose.
Are you asking the cause of the leak or cause of the not moving problem. If your fluid is low that may be the problem right there. YOU CAN BURN OUT A TRANSMISSION BY NOT KEEPING FLUID FULL!!!
The most likely cause of transmission fluid coming up the filler tube is air in the fluid. This can be caused by a leak in the system and should be checked by a mechanic as soon as possible.
It is possible, but not likely for a transmission fluid leak from the speed sensors.
Yes, that can cause the fluid to foam up and leak out of the vent.
If you run the transmission low on fluid you can cause damage. Fix the leak.
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.
Yes It Wil If The Vacuum Leak Is In A Hose That Gos To you Transmission
I don't think so. The automatic transmission is controlled by engine speed, vehicle speed and throttle position. A large vacuum leak could effect throttle position, but it would cause other problems more noticable than the effect on transmission shifting. a vacuum leak mpuld not cause trasmission to slip but a band inside transmission would cause the problem
No. The transmission is sealed to the input shaft and torque converter inside the bell housing of the transmission. It is possible to leak oil into the bell housing, but that will not migrate into the sealed transmission. If your transmission fluid looks as dark as your motor oil, a flush of your transmission may be in order. -Steve
No, but it could cause higher then average wear on the transmission.
Find the leak source and repair it. Usually the cause is cooler hoses.
Transmission fluid can leak from many places. It could leak from the actual transmission itself, or any of the tubing that goes from the transmission to other parts of the car.
There is no one answer. The entire transmission, all trans cooler lines, and the trans cooler all have fluid in them. Anything that contains fluid has the potential to leak anywhere. On a transmission there are a number of moving parts, such as input shafts and output shafts, each with a seal. That is a likely source for a leak, esp given the age of this transmission. Another likely source for a leak is the rubber cooler lines and/or the clamps. But really, the entire transmission body can leak at any seal or gasket. There are literally dozens of opportunities for a transmission to leak. The only way to find it is raise the vehicle and search out the leak.
Yeah I hit a manhole cover sticking a few inches out of the road at about 30 mph and my transmission busted open and all the fluid jsut pours right out
Not generally, no. Although it may be possible, in theory at least, for the overheating of the engine due to the head gasket leak, to cause excess heat to be transferred to your automatic transmission via the transmission oil cooler located in the radiator or simply by way of direct conductivity. This is extremely unlikely to cause the transmission any problems or even to overheat. The transmission problem is most likely a separate issue and should be treated as such.
Possible freeze plug leak at rear of engine block.
A possible leak
sounds like a leak in your transmission cooler lines. check the smaller hoses going to the radiator usually the bottom.
Why would you put power steering stop leak in an automatic transmission in the first place? You obviously don't know what you are doing. Take it to a professional!
Coolant should not be leaking from your transmission the only fluid in your transmission is transmission fluid. A faulty transmission seal can allow transmission fluid to leak out.
