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.
