Q: SMG transmission cannot be put into gear, fluid leaks

asked by on

My car has an SMG transmission. The problems started occuring a couple of months ago so I went to the delership. They found and fixed a leak. Also, they added the SMG transmission fluid. After this was done, I noticed that there is a large amount of fluid leaked under the car. I tried to run the car, but I cannot put it into gear. What could be wrong here? Did they do a bad job or are the issues happening again?
