It was cold out to and the car was not warmed up maybe 28-30 Fahrenheit
My car has 70000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi - yes, it is certainly possible to ruin a transmission by running over a rock or other "unmoving object". If the fluid leaked out, the transmission could be damaged in minutes. If the transmission case itself struck the rock and broke the case - game over. Replace the transmission. I would recommend a transmission inspection to validate the diagnosis by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
