I have a 2000 ford explorer try to put tranmission fluid and it leaks out.

Asked by Mar 14, 2014 at 08:25 AM about the 2000 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had a broken transmission line to the front cooler by the radiator. I fixed it but when I tried to put fluid in through the trans dipstick tube it leaked out. Do I have a seal problem or does the transmission have an overflow valve that keeps it from being overfilled?

Where is it leaking out? No overflow valve- do not overfill- it sounds like something you did or didn't do in the repair- now you know why mechanics charge so much
