So I've got this very beat-up 1991 Dodge B150 van named Julio. I use
it to haul my band's gear (2 weekends a month). Other than that it
just sits in my driveway. It's got over 228,000 miles on it, but the
odometer stopped working a year or so ago. I was changing a front tire
on it (driver's side) and I left it jacked up overnight. When I went
to put the tire back on it the next day there was a big puddle of
transmission fluid under it, about 1/3 of the way back (i.e. not right
under the engine). This van has not been known to leak trans fluid (or
much of any other fluid if you can believe it). Should I be concerned?
Is there some sort of gasket or seal in the area of the leak that
might need to be replaced? Or should I just avoid leaving it jacked up
in the front overnight?
P.S. The van is named Julio after the dude I bought it from.
