If the vehicle has an automatic transmission, there will be a transmission dipstick tube probably on the… The Mazda truck slave clylinders are notorious for leaking and causing the pedal to be soft or not shift into gear when they leak. . Somebody has to know something plz help! I know it's not because of overfilling because it will leak fluid all the way to the point where I'm almost out and I've taken steps to make sure I'm checking and filling the fluid properly. We drove two hours back to the dealership where they found a computer wire was disconnected. At just 100k miles, the cost for repairs has been staggering. The new mechanic is saying that it has taken the past 6 months for the fluid to leak past the bad tranfer case seal my bill does not have anything on it in regards to the tranfer case, only tranmission parts building too much fluid pressure in the transfer case causing the fluid to escape out the transmission vent hose where I have seen the fluid leaking.
The 2000 Chevrolet Blazer with the 4L60E Hydramatic if leaking is indicative of a hard and or soft part failures. I had to remove the skid plate hardware, place a hydraulic jack under the transfer case and remove the transmission support bracket, and then contort to remove the transmission pan fasteners. I own a Honda Civic and at 200k it's my most reliable vehicle, the only think major was the head gasket, which was a factory flaw that year. If this is so, I will install a separate transmission cooler. With a transfer case, it goes into the transfer case. There was a thumping noise in the front end and seems like it happens worst on right turns, the left wheel bearing was loose in the hub bearing assembly, the hood hinges rattling excessive clearence, there was excessive slippage and the clutch burnt. It wasn't magic like you might suggest.
It doesn't look too easy to access where it actually comes out of the tranny but I'm sure it can be done. I think I recall being able to feel it but not visually see it. I bought the vehicle brand new and daily use to go to work and drop kids off at school. With engine at operating temperature, shift through all gears. It shouldn't be too hard to find it. It is still leaking from the tube I originally mentioned. The consumer had to fill the tires every week.
The fuel lines and the brake lines had to be repaired both were rusted and started leaking. Consumer stated he had been hearing it a little, but currently the noise became more pronounced. It should be stamped on the intake towards the front right portion. This last winter my wife, the primary driver, complained that the vehicle had no power while coming home one night and the weeknights following for a week. After that long and tiring experience with my wife's car I now that this won't be no different. I took it to a transmission shop in town. Dealership sales paperwork still in glove box, they paid over 30k in 2001.
Right now the dipstick reads right where it should. When I got back home, I dropped the car off at the dealership and told them to fix it. This is how you have to fill the transmission fluid as well. This lube is heavy and thick and usually smell. After replacing the solenoid pack it took 12 quarts to fill. I've had the light recall fixed. Best way to find out is to drain the transfer case to the proper level, fill up the transmission to its proper level and see if this happens again.
Any more info is greatly appreciated. The seal between the trans and the transfer case is still a potential problem. Wonder what happens in that situation? You should not have to add fluid which is about 80 weight gear lube unless you are leaking fluid from the transmission. It only has 90k and shifts fine, there's just a pretty bad leak. Anyways, the problem should be resolved. Drove it to a garage. Make sure you don't try mix the oil dipstick with the transmission dipstick! Developed to help prevent leaks, maximize transmission performance, reduce transmission wear, and maintain smooth shifting longer than conventional fluids.
In either situation, if the seal leaks, fluid comes out. I would first check the clutch fluid reservoir low fluid level and also check underneath at the transmission at the slave cylinder for leaks and the rubber boot for cracks and deterioation and fluid around the piston that pushes the throw out bearing arm. I had already had the multi-function switch replaced shortly after I bought the car because someone almost rear-ended me. Unfortunately, he told me that it has to be checked under the vehicle. Yes, I have replaced the seal.
And, make sure you use the appropriate transmission fluid and do not overfill - read your book! Rear hatch switch not working, had to replace the entire unit. I anxiously await hearing from you. So I guess this is just like a mysterious problem that no human has solved yet, or from what I hear possibly due to internal damage. You will need a funnel that fits into the top of the tube. I thank you for your help and assistance in this long and tiring ordeal. Ok, so this is my question. Finally the leak is fixed!! Trying to fix this thing.
Without a transfer case, it falls to the ground or gets spun around by the yoke. I'm including a pic of it, but I haven't crawled underneath to track it down. If what you say is the case hopefully , it can't be that difficult to replace the vent tube, right? My friend goes to school and is learning to be a mechanic and his teacher said he recommends switching out the transmission! Also, I saw a model like mine at the junk yard and it's vent tube was like clipped to the differential I believe vent tube which is like an upside down L elevated about 3 or 4 inches above the top of the tranny. I checked the fluid with the engine at operating temp in park multiple times. I also own a Jeep Wrangler and thought the repairs on that were bad. This new mechanic shook his head when he heard that I had the transmission rebuilt and informed me that he believed it was only the front differential case seal between the transmission and transfer case, and that the transmission should not have needed to be rebuilt.
