Hello. You should definitely not drive your car when the transmission gear box oil is low as this could cause major damage. In this situation, I would have an expert come to your vehicle to have it diagnosed and repaired. A certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your location to pinpoint the cause of the leak and have this repaired accordingly.
