Q: Q: Transmission fluid is leaking

asked by on

My transmission fluid is leaking. I think I may need a new front seal.

Greetings. It is somewhat expected for seals to stop preventing leaks after a few years of usage. If it is the front seal as you believe it to be, the transmission will have to be dropped to replace it. There are multiple seals that can fail on a transmission. YourMechanic provides certified technicians who are more than capable of accurately diagnosing transmission leaks.
