My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If the issue or question here is difficulty locating a leak,the first thing that needs done is to have the engine and transmission degreased and cleaned off.Then top off the fluids and run the vehicle for a few minutes and check it for leaks.You can also try adding oil/fluid dye to the engine or transmission and clean off the oil then run the vehicle and use a leak tracer light to locate and repair the leak.If this is not what you are asking here let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,a rating of 4 or 5 is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
