Hey everyone - I've got a 92 Corolla with 225,000 miles. I just had the transmission replaced and everything was running perfectly. Last night I noticed a trail of transmission fluid following my car into the garage. Upon inspection, it appears that one of the hoses down around the bottom of the transmission is leaking where it connects to the metal pipe coming from the transmission. When the car is started, transmission fluid literally pours from this connection. It's a about 3/4" hose, and it appears that this is the original hose and clamp. My assumption is that the clamp is no longer sufficient and/or the hose is cracked at the connection point. My assumption would be to repair this issue I should:
1) disconnect the hose
2) get replacement hose and clamps from auto store (will they have such?)
3) replace the hose
4) refill the transmission fluid (how much?)
Does this make sense? What am I missing? I'm handy with cars, but never played much in the transmission area so any advice / corrections appreciated.
Thanks for reading!
