The leak and the engine "smoke" is likely due to the plastic Y leaking as Sienile said, i.e. steam. Does it smell or look like oil smoke?Hey guys/gals,
A few weeks ago, while driving, my transmission started slipping and acting funny. RPMs were going up really high. As if though I was driving on 1st gear at 60 MPH on the highway. Engine started smoking like crazy. It's been sitting since then. Too cold to try to diagnose the issue.
Today I was able to see the leak. I can see the leak but cannot tell what the part (in red circle) where it's leaking from is, or what it's called. The drip of the leak increases as you accelerate.
Your transmission, similar to being in limp mode, is another issue. Shift lever in wrong location, i.e. set in a low gear? Any lights lite up? Transmission fluid level okay? Any transmission fluid (red oil) dripping on the ground?
