2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 64000 miles

Hi,

I see is few drops of ATF, dropping over the exhaust pipe, picture below. Its about a quart a month.

It doesn't look like the pan gasket leaking.

What should be leaking from tranny above the exhaust pipe?

Should this be the Axle seal or the front pump seal?

Whats above the Exhaust pipe. Axle seal or Pump seal?

Kindly help.

Abi

Hi there.

You should be able to wash the trans down and check for the fresh leak after a drive, it could be the pan gasket as the slip stream can carry oil back as you drive.
