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.

If your car is still running, IMMEDIATELY drain the fluid from your transmission and change the filter. Then refill it with proper fluid. Hopefully you only topped up your tranny with it so there is still proper fluid in there and this might have saved you.

The first thing I would do is change the transmission filter and fluid and have the transmission flushed. This is the cheapest thing you can do to remedy the problem, and it should be done every few years. I hope this helps you. Mark

What happens if you over fill your transmission fluid?

If you over fill your transmission fluid, you might blow out the transmission seals. It is most likely that some fluid will overflow, but no damage will occur.

Will a rear transmission seal leak cause any damage to clutch components or harm to the transmission if replaced soon and there is still fluid in the transmission?

It depends on how much fluid leaked from your transmission. 2 quarts would probably be considered ok. anything more, the transmission might start to slip intermitantly and cause internal problems. Mac's Transmissions Houston, TX 281-743-1000

What automatic transmission fluid should be used in a 1968 Chevy Nova?

ANOTHER ANSWER Technically, your 68 Nova Automatic Transmission was designed to use Dexron II transmission fluid. It's called a "friction modified" transmission fluid, meaning that it was designed to work with the internal clutches. As friction modified fluids are all slightly different, it might be best to stay with the stuff that was originally designed for the transmission, but you might be able to get more information from your locak transmission shop. ANSWER Any fluid that says dexron on it.

The torque converter might be going. but first check your fluid level.

Why is your transmission very slow to shift?

you might need a new one soon. but first check your transmission fluid.

What would cause a car to start but not move either front or back?

Check the transmission fluid level. This happened to me when the transmission oil was really low. I had to add about 4 quarts before the vehicle would move in either direction. Usually that's a transmission problem (assuming it's an automatic). Check the transmission fluid level. If the fluid is low you might be able to get the vehicle to run by adding fluid. If the fluid is low, check for leaks to keep it from happening again. If the fluid is black or dark red (red with blackened tint) your transmission has been slipping and has failed. If it's a "stick" shift, you'll probably need a new clutch/pressure plate.

Why would a 2000 Mercury Sable start to have a big vibration at low speed after changing transmission fluid?

A 2000 Mercury Sable might have a vibration at low speeds after changing the transmission fluid because of a lack of fluid or leaking fluid. Check the transmission case for leakage and check the fluid level before driving again.

1995 Taurus automatic won't shift into second gear what could be the cause of this and do I have to replace the transmission?

There are a number of tests that can be performed find the cause. The PCM ( powertrain control module)should be scanned for trouble codes. This transmission iselectronically controlled so it might just be a bad connection or a solenoid malfunctioning. This is a complicated procedure and without a transmission service manual and proper testing equipment it is impossible to diagnose.

What causes a auto transmission to be slow shifting from first to second?

An automatic transmission might be slow shifting from first to second because of low transmission fluid. You might also have damaged the gears in the transmission at the area between first and second.
