Sorry, but the only fix for that is an expensive piece of jewelry or a trip for two to Tahiti. Personally I'd go for the Tahiti trip.

I had a transmission leak in the back of my wife's old car during transportation.





Sold the car.


Sorry, not much help. Every time the inside of the car got hot, it stank.

There are some cleaners that use enzymes to eat up the smelly stuff. They work great on pet stains, maybe they will work on oil.

Simple Green and a CLEAN brush. It will take a lot of elbow grease and plan on using a full roll of paper towels. If that doesn't work put a potted plant on the area!

You could also use a little starting fluid to flush the oil out of the carpet fiber and into the pad, but you house will stink and be pretty explosive for a bit. My oldest wiped vasoline all over the carpet when he was little and the ether pushed it through to the pad. Of course you could call the carpet cleaners and have them out.

I would soak up as much as possible with paper towels and then the best all purpose spot cleaner I have used is called "Spot Shot". I haven't used it on trans fluid, but it's never failed to clean anything else out of my carpet. I buy it at Sam's.

That's what I did smiling smiley
Another alternative is to dye the carpet Red to match the transmission fluid.

Other then that...your boned!

Shop vac to get most up of the oil up. Then clean up with the others suggestions. Or, maybe it is time for new carpeting.
