Q: Oil leak after running over curb

asked by on

I ran over the curb. Now, I have an oil leak.

Hi. It sounds like you may have a leak in your oil pan or transmission. You could have hit one or both of those when you hit the curb. If any leaks are existing, the oil pan or transmission would need to be replaced. I would have a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the leak to see what repairs are necessary.
