Why does your 1988 Chevy automatic transmission seem to leak only when under pressure?

Auto transmissions operate on pump pressure. The pump turns when the engine is running. This is why it leaks only when running.

Vehicles with an automatic transmission may have lines that carry transmission fluid from the transmission to a separate tank on the bottom of the radiator.

Assuming you have a automatic transmission the dipstick should be located under the hood, behind the engine, on the passenger side.

Assuming you have an automatic transmission the dipstick is located under the hood on the passenger side in back of the engine, close to the firewall.

Listed under the hood on a placard and in the owner's manual.

Automatic transmission oil filters ware located inside the transmission, under the transmission oil pan. You have to remove the transmission oil pan to replace it and then you will need to refill it with new transmission fluid.

there is a drain plug just under the transmission (for automatic transmission) on the driver side

The automatic transmission was the 4L-60e for under 8500lbs GVWR and the 4l-80e for over 8500lbs. As for manual transmissions it would be the HM290 5spd for under 8500lbs GVWR and the NewProcess 4500 for over 8500lbs.

There should be two dipsticks under the hood on a Malibu. One will be plainly marked "OIL" or "ENGINE OIL." The other one is your transmission fluid. This is assuming your Malibu has automatic transmission. If your Malibu has a manual transmission (stick shift), then there is no dipstick for transmission fluid -- manual trannies get lubrication from the engine oil.

You will need to provide more information on the problem. Is it an automatic or a standard? If it's an automatic, is it a three speed or four speed overdrive, and what exactly are the symptoms? If it's a standard, in what gear and under what circumstances does the problem occur?

Under the rear of the car on the side of the transmission.

If it has an automatic transmission, it should have a dipstick on the passenger side, under the hood, near the firewall. If it has a manual transmission, no dipstick.

My 64, with small block, and automatic was just under 2700.

under the truck bolted to the engine!

There should be a red dipstick on the drivers side under the hood near the firewall. Similar to that of an automatic transmission.

The Neutral safety switch is located on the back of the automatic transmission. it is quite simple to replace. It is probably easier to replace from under the vehicle, but it is accessable from the top if your vehicle is not equipped with ABS.

Transmission fluid is added through the dipstick tube under the hood.

User Avatar

Yes, via cable. Look under the brake booster,it connects there.

it depends if it is an automatic or standard the automatic has a dip stick under the hood and a standard has a plug on the drivers side of the transmission.
