Q: A part fell off, can't tell what part it is, but i can show picture. is that possible?

asked by on

I changed transmission fluid, filter, and gasket. When I drove the car over a ramp, something fell off, and I cannot remember seeing it before

My car has 204500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. With no knowing what part came off and the little information that is giving, all that I can suggest is look under the vehicle and see what part have came off. If you have the part, take it to a local parts store and have them match up the part. If the parts store associate cannot help you, then I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you determine what the part is.
