Simple test if you have the tools is to get a air compressort at very low psi put air to the tank and watch for leaks do a pressure test, you can also take a fuel line off from the engine compartment and pressure test it back to the tank that way. Hope that helps.

Why is your 1999 Ford F-350 Transmission leaking from front where it connects motor there is no slippage in driving?

Most likely it is the engine oil leaking into the front part of the transmission. There is a seal there -- the rear main seal -- that seals the end of the crankshaft where it exits the engine and connects to the flywheel or flexplate to transmit the engine power to the transmission. Engine oil is black in color, and automatic transmission fluid is largely red in color. Any dirty fluid can appear black or blackened, so it is good to clean all areas where the fluid is leaking, and then use a white paper towel to collect some of the freshly leaking fluid to determine its color.

Where or how do you add transmission fluid to your 2002 Thunderbird?

You can't the transmission on the 2002 Thunderbird is sealed. There is no distick or any way to add fluid other than through the ports on the transmission under the car. The dealer has to do that. It shouldn't need fluid unless it has a leak. If it is leaking it has to be done by a mechanic that will fix the leak and then drain the entire transmission and refill it through the ports on the bottom.

What can you use to help insure a tight seal on your radiator hose replacement when you just changed the hose and still have a drip?

If it's leaking at the radiator, make sure you haven't accidentally bent the fitting. Sometimes a brass fitting can be accidentally bent and you'll never get it to seal until it's round and cleaned up. If it's leaking at the block or water pump, make sure it's clean and there are no large corrosion pits. If everything looks good at those locations, check for leaks elsewhere. The radiator could be leaking where the hose connects. The water pump could be leaking and it only LOOKS like it's leaking at the hose.

What can be causing a oil leak above the oil filter in 1989 ford thunderbird?

First make sure it is not the filter that is leaking. Remove the old filter and install a new filter that is the correct one. Apply oil to the gasket and tighten exactly 3/4 turn after it makes contact with the mounting surface. Tighten any moreor any less and it may leak. If that is not the problem, then I would suspect the valve cover gasket may be leaking. Another possiblility is a leaking oil pressure sending unit.
