1999 Elantra. I recently found a paddle of fluid on the top of the
transmission. It looked and smelled like transmission fluid. I dried
it out but in a couple of days it reappeared. I saw a rubber cap in
this area. It looks like it covers some kind of port. I suspect fluid
is coming out of under this cap. I also checked the fluid level. It
was a little higher then "hot" marks. The transmission was serviced
last time by a dealer. I did not check the level as I assumed
everything was done by Hyundai specs.
Could it happen that the leak is caused by excess of the transmission
fluid? I will appreciate any advice.
