Stainless Steel Machete?·
...fluid change. Why + from where? I changed the Transmission fluid +filter in a 1987-88 FWD Cadillac Fleetwood. After filling most of the way back up with fluid, i started the car to accurately fill the rest of the way, when Transmission fluid started spraying from the bottom of the radiator area. I did no work on this area , and can't see exactly where the leak is coming from. (the pan gasket, which i replaced is 100% leak free) There are two soft lines going to the radiator from the transmission that i am about to replace, but am not sure that they are what are leaking. what else could be the problem? Is there a pump between the trans and the cooler that could have blown a gasket? is it likely that the increased flow of the new filter damaged the trans-cooler/radiator? Are there any other reasons than higher flow/pressure that could have caused this? What are some cheep fixes?
