What is the best way to trace down a transmission fluid leak? I have a rather large one... Each morning I back my car out of the garage(not a drop under it while sitting in the garage), it leaves quite a stream. Everything below is wet underneath but I can tell it is coming from the drivers side somewhere. I am doubting it has anything to do with reverse since it doesn't do it later in the day. It seems to "build up" overnight and run off when I back out. I tried to see if it was building up on a frame rail or something but I couldn't find anything. Even put the front end up on ramps one night to see if that would cause it to run out. It didn't! I'm perplexed! I thought maybe someone ran into the same thing and might have a direction to push me into... Thanks!
Thanks 98 Eldo. I'll check it out this weekend. What does turning the wheels to the right do, put stress on the bushing? And does it make any sense that there are no dripps overnight but it appears to "build up" somewhere and when I start it and back up it leaks alot and leaves a big line of fluid? It's a substantial amount. then, when I stop to look under, it stops?
I'm assuming by what you are saying that the bushing is not replaceable with the transmission on the car?
