Q: My car has a leak in the transmission fluid gasket

asked by on

I recently took my car in for an oil change, and they found a minor leak in the transmission fluid gasket. My car has about 75,000 miles on it. The marked it as 'not needing immediate attention,' and said I can wait to fix it, but to keep an eye on it. Is this a problem that can be addressed later? If so, how long can I wait? I don't want it to become a more serious or expensive problem by waiting.
