Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What would make my 2001 ford winstar lose all its
tyranny fluid and now it's not leaking at all

1 Answer


Fluid overheating, fluid will blow out the front pump seal, the vent, rear output shaft seal and even up the fill tube. Most likely cause is a plugged cooler or a cooler line has been kinked or crushed flat, if the lines look good then I would bypass the cooler in the radiator entirely and install a good auxiliary tranny cooler. I would service the trans and add some LubeGuard for Ford transmissions after doing the above mentioned work. HTH
