Just wondering if anyone can help with this...
There is a red fluid I believe to be transmission fluid building up around the air filter and carburetor. What could be causing this to happen?

Bamtuba, first of all Welcome to Team Camaro! You've come to the right place to start looking for answers, that's for sure.

But you already posted all of the issues you're having with your Camaro in this thread.... https://www.camaros.net/forum/ultimat...c;f=5;t=002604

There's no need to repeat each issue again in seperate threads. Someone will definitely read the original post and offer what help they can. I posted a link to a Third Gen website that might give you some help or ideas. Have you stopped by Advance Auto or AutoZone on Jefferson Rd. or Ridge Rd. yet and picked up a Haynes service manual for your car? It'll help ya pinpoint some of the areas you should be concerned with to start out.

Good luck!

Hey check your vacuum modulator on the trans. when these go bad they sometimes leak. the vacuum from the carb sucks tranny fluid into the filter.

Once you fix the vacuum modulator don't forget to top of the transmission. Check in running in park and warm. 1pt to the mark.
