!994 5.7L V8 Silverado. Transmission fluid is being lost fast, but not on the ground, it's unknown where it's going. Truck will not move unless more fluid is added, next day more fluid is needed. The truck has 155,000 miles on it. Thanks for any help.

    4X4???? MAKES A LOT OF DIFFERENCE. THEN WE MAY BE ABLE TO TELL YOU MORE.
    IF IT IS 4X4 CHECK TRANSFER CASE FLUID, IS IT OVER FULL? DOES IT SMOKE FROM TAIL PIPE?
    4X4 IS "VACUUM"ACTUATED!! IF NOT 4X4 IT HAS TO BE LEAKING WHILE DRIVING AND SHOULD SHOW SIGNS
    UNDER AND ON BACK OF TRUCK!

    YOUR WELCOM. THEN IT IS LEAKING!!! LOOK ON REAR BUMPER AND TAIL GATE, SEE THEM SPOTS, THAT IS TRANS. FLUID.
    ONLY OTHER PLACE TO LOOK IS IN THE COOLANT, (RADIATOR) OR RAD. OVERFLOW TANK.
