problem details
1997 Pontiac Trans Sport 102,000 mi,
transmission cooler lines leaked after buying used van. Not sure the exact time but it ruined the transmission 2 months after buying the van with only 98,000 miles on it. Now I check the fluids more frequently and I have to put in quarts of tranny fluid on a regular basis. Seems like there is another leak I cannot locate.
1997 Pontiac Trans Sport 101,000 mi,
transmission line leak caused all the fluids to go out and transmission went bad because of it.
Rubber line blew off draining fluid while driving. Put tube back on clamped then added fluid and drove home.
