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)

If a transmission is leaking fluid, it is likely that a seal or gasket has failed. Replace the gaskets and seals and the leaking should stop.

Depends on where it is leaking. If it is leaking at the pan gasket, then try tightening the bolts to 20 lb/ft torque. If that doesn't work the gasket will need replacing. This is a good time to have the fluid and filter changed. If it is leaking at the seals then you can try a can of some sort of transmission stop leak. Any Auto Parts store can recommend one. May or may not stop the leak. If the leak persists and is more than a few drops a day, the transmission will need repair by a pro.

There could be a transmission fluid leak. Check the seals. They may be loose or worn out.

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.

No, thay have never made anything in a can that will fix something. If you add stop leak to your transmission it will mess up the seals and you will have to have the transmission rebuilt. It would be best to just fix the leak and a whole lot cheaper.

My advice would be to have the transmission fluid and filter changed. If that does not correct the problem you need to have the transmission rebuilt by a professional.

low transmission fluid clogged fluid filter

put radiator sealer in it or crack an egg in it

User Avatar

No, probably not. Engine oil stop-leak would be more likely to help, however that is a temporary fix and I would not recommend it. Just replace the seal.

There are several things that can cause your automatic transmission not to go into first gear. The most common cause is low transmission fluid.

Remove support brackets from dipstick--then it should just "Pull-out" Lubricate "O" Ring prior to installation

Mitsubishi eclipse is famous because of failing transmission. If I were you I would start with checking transmission fluid level. But most likely you will have to change transmission or fix one you have.

To stop a standard transmission from grinding into third gear, check the level of the transmission fluid. If the noise continues, consult a mechanic.

Fluid level low, washer pump motor bad or fuse blown, hoses leaking or disconnected, or the spray orifice is clogged.

I just had this problem and had to replace the torque converter. Also the two three solenoid was bad..

You need to unbolt the tube, pull it out, replace the o ring, reinstall, and check the fluid level.You need to unbolt the tube, pull it out, replace the o ring, reinstall, and check the fluid level.

Then you either have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Stop driving the car immediately an have it repaired. A rare possibility is that the transmission cooler inside the radiator is leaking fluid into the cooling system.

Type ATF+4 * * * * * * * Transmission fluid is OK, but I recommend power steering fluid itself. My Diamante's steering system leaks a little and squeaks when it's cold, so I would recommend a fluid labeled "Stop-Leak" just to be sure. If it's really leaking, check the connections and put something called Lucas in it (it's in a white bottle with a pointed top).

if you run out of transmission fluid yes because then your car couldn't run

User Avatar

It 12 years old you should have it serviced perhaps the seals need replaced, an are sure it's the Trans leaking and not the engine.

As long as you keep the car, then keep chaging the fluid. Do not flush the transmission on a car with this many miles, just chage the fluid.
