Tranny fluid on driveway

9 posts in this topic

I have an asphalt driveway and had my kids tranny line leaking all winter and was unware until he got home from college and it moved. How can I get the oil spot out of the driveway?

Thanks - Bryan

How can I get the oil spot out of the driveway?

You won't be able to get the spot out but you could put a asphault sealer coat over the driveway and that should cover it up.

set some oil dry on it for a while then try a preassure washer witha good strong solvent and seal it..

I used a bottle of biodegradeable cleaner on some DARK wood stain I spilled on a concrete driveway and it came right out. The stuff was in a purple bottle and I got it at Ace. I think the name was super clean. This worked by far the best out of six or seven cleaners I got. This was a customers driveway so it had to come out. Being set in you may have a rough time getting it out.

we used to burn it out with a torch then put some prepseal down before you sealcoat it or the sealcoat wont stick to that spot.

they make a degreaser/driveway cleaner concentrate for pressure washers. they have worked fairly well in removing oil/grease from driveways.

Try Dawn liquid soap. Pour it on and let it sit for a day then wash. I've gotten rid of oil stains this way.

I did the dawn trick first then laundry soap did some good but not enough. Rented a pressure washer and used the degreaser, then torched remaining. Going to seal next week and then redo the entire driveway. Thanks for everyone's help.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
